Can you believe it's almost Christmas?

  • I swear Christmas sneaks up on me quicker and quicker each year.
  • Still no Christmas decorations-at this late date, there's no point.
  • I've been crazy busy trying to get all the Christmas shopping done for my clients.  It's been fun spending someone's money other than my own, but it's been a little stressful trying to buy things for people who really don't need anything.  Most of their wants are simple, too.  One of my clients is perfectly satisfied with balloons to blow up, another with pens and paper to scribble on.  Their bank accounts can't have over a certain amount of money in them at the end of the month, so I'm usually pretty up to date on replacing worn out clothes and belongings.  This has not made Christmas shopping very easy.  I'm just about done, though.  Hooray!  
  • I'm planning on working Christmas morning this year.  I want to make sure my staff, some of whom have children, are able to spend the time with their families.  I spent Thanksgiving with mine and we won't have kids around for Christmas this year, so hopefully it won't be a problem to open gifts later in the day.  
  • My friend, Taryn, came down from Wyoming to visit for the weekend.  We had lots of fun and lots of good chats.  It was kind of nice to have someone around to hang out with and talk to.  I guess on occasion I do miss having a roommate.  On the other hand, if I had a roommate, I would have to start wearing pants.  That might be a dealbreaker.
  • I am obsessed with Mojito-flavored Crystal Light.  It's perfection in a glass.  You should try it.
  • I finally had a cortisone injection in my gimpy elbow and now it feels great!  It doesn't sound like it would be, but this is very exciting!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it works for a while. 
I feel like this was possibly the least interesting set of bullet points that I have done.  I gotta get back on the ball here!  Side note-did you see the monkey in the coat that was wandering around Ikea?  I want to cuddle him.

went back to 2008 to find my favorite christmas post, but it's not there.... sad day. it was the one about kicking over the reindeer on the front lawn and throwing cookies at the neighbors and telling them to choke on them.... wait a minute, I think that was a comment on my blog. Yes, here it is http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=4160022706084714601&postID=473843792142248079

Ah yes, the infamous reindeer! Just thinking about kicking them over brings me such joy. If I recall correctly, that was the year that my entire family (except me) was leaving right after Christmas to do study abroad in Spain. I think I was having a rough time with the whole thing. :)
