It is cold and windy out and a storm is a brewin’. I love this weather! After a quick trip to the market to get more stuff for the big meal, we are about to head over to see the in-laws and watch some football. I’ve got a roast in the Crock-Pot and I am trying to
bribe rally the kids into sitting for a holiday pic. Each year, it gets harder and harder to take pics of them and I’ve got nothing good to put on the Christmas card. Seems like a simple request but I swear, they act like I am killing them or something.
On the reading front, I am still reading 1Q84 and really loving it. It’s the type of story that you digest in small bits because it really makes you ponder your existence (in general). I’ve been enjoying a couple of chapters here and there, but come Wednesday, I will be reading King’s new one so I have to finish 1Q84 before then. Time to pick-up the pace a bit. I am also reading Sunset Park and that is also a book that you ponder after putting it down, so my brain is in overdrive right now. I love it though.
This week I am working Monday and Tuesday and then I am off the rest of the week. We will be enjoying another year of “Thanksgiving in Pajamas” which means that on Thursday, we will be absolute slugs. We will eat, drink and be merry and do nothing but watch movies and maybe The Twilight Zone or I Love Lucy. A long time ago we did away with the pretense and it’s made the holiday super fun for everyone. We still break-out the fine china but it’s casual and easy. It’s become my favorite thing.
Anyway, I am off to get those kids photographed. Wish me luck!
