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.
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?
