This Week I'm:
Listening To: One more week of The Flamethrowers - the jury's still out on this one but now that it's taking fewer side trips, I'm enjoying it more. I'm also dipping my toes into Christmas music but the radio stations who play it this time of year tend to play the same things over and over so it gets old. Also, they tend to forget the reason for the season and I want my religious Christmas music.
Watching: Volleyball, football, The Voice...the usual. But I'm also watching Christmas shows - Rudolph and It's A Wonderful Life. Today I'm finally bringing up the Christmas decorations so I'll likely put on a Christmas movie while I'm decorating.

reading done than I have
Making: Again, see above. I've largely relied on The Big Guy to feed me this week. I did make some chicken noodle soup last night (and even froze a container) last night and this morning I made cinnamon rolls. If I'm cookin', I must be getting better.
Planning: It's all about Christmas this week. Lots of shopping to get done, Christmas cards to get ready to mail, decorating to do and I need to start baking so I can ship some of that to Milwaukee as well.
Thinking About: How much I miss Mini-me's Sunday visits. I just finished off a pot of coffee. If he were here, we'd be firing up another pot. I know he's very happy where he's at, with Miss S, which helps. But still...
Which brings up something else I've been thinking about: it's now less than seven months until they are married. I can't believe it! And then what do I call her? Mrs. S? Mrs. Mini-me?
Enjoying: Watching the first snow fall of the year. Although it did ruin plans for the day. Now it just needs to hurry up and melt today, as forecast.
Feeling: Frustrated. I don't know about you, but this time of year, I can't afford to not feel up to accomplishing anything for four or five days.
Looking forward to: Hopefully getting to go shopping for my mom with my dad and my sister this week. That's what we were supposed to be doing yesterday but my folks didn't get to come to Omaha thanks to the snow. My dad used to need help shopping for my mom; he doesn't really need the help any more but none of us is ready to do away with that tradition.
Question of the week: Do you still send Christmas cards? A lot of our friends have stopped sending them, now that we are all so in touch with each other throughout the year. I miss them, though!
