The Week Ahead: December 8-14, 2008

I love the holidays but the one thing I don’t like, DETEST actually, is the constant rushing around. It leaves me completely dazed and worn out. This past week was a bit much with the Holiday Show, but the kids were fantastic. My son had a solo and he hit the notes dead on. Kidlet #2 sang for real! No lip syncing which is what she has been doing for 3 weeks.

Here’s what my week looks like:

Monday, December 8, 2008 – I have a number of things to do at work (blech). I am working on updating technical documentation. It’s riveting, let me tell you. However, with the bad comes the good… I am taking a co-worker out to lunch for his bday. He hasn’t told me yet where he wants to go so I can’t tempt you with any yummy foods yet. Tonight, tickets go on sale for The Music Man so I have to get to rehearsal early so we’ll have decent seats. I don’t mind rehearsal because while Kidlet #1 is inside, I get to hang out in the car or shop or whatever.

Tuesday, December 9, 2008 – More work stuff and I hope to read at least 50 pages of Ransom My Heart sometime today. Tonight I am going to a holiday shin dig at the University Club. It’s for my women’s group. A lot of the women are older but man, they crack me up. It should be a good time.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008 – Gayle over at Everyday I Write The Book is hosting her online book club today and she will be discussing We Need To Talk About Kevin.

Thursday, December 11, 2008 – Hoping to have my review of Ransom My Heart up today at some point. At lunch, I will be meeting an old friend from work. He has yet to tell me where he’d like to go. Men.

Friday, December 12, 2008 – Yet another dinner party to go to tonight but this one is always a lot of fun. My co-worker’s house is very close by and a bunch of us just head over there after work. There’s always good conversation. Good food and drink too.

The Weekend – Nothing going on Saturday yet but Sunday night my girlfriend Karen and her family are coming over for a Christmas exchange. We do it every year. This time we are ordering food so we can just relax and have fun. I love getting presents. Oops. Did I say that out loud?

What do you have planned this week? Any special holiday events?

  1. I, too, dislike the rushed feeling of holiday preparations. It sounds as if you have a good balance of business and pleasure.I am new to your blog, and have been enjoying it.

  2. Yay, glad the Holiday Show went well and the kidlets did good. Yes the holiday rushing does get to a person. I wish I was one of those people who got things done in an advance but unfortuantely I’m not.

  3. Sounds like a fun week with the Christmas parties/dinners/exchanges.I was just looking at the past Orange Prize winners today and saw <>We Need to Talk About Kevin<> on it. Did you enjoy the book?Shana< HREF="" REL="nofollow">Literarily<>
