Christmas is Coming

I enjoyed my day off today – maybe a little too much. I never left the house/property. I blew off the driveway after taking my time to do some reading this morning. Then I put up some Christmas lights. I was thinking there would be more, but I couldn’t find them easily, so I figured I’d wait for more direction. The direction didn’t come so I called it quits.

I spent most of the rest of the day working on writing Christmas cards. I’ve got what seems like a huge stack here, but it is really not that many when you look at the numbers. I’m probably about halfway through where I would like to be, and a quarter of the way through where I should be! I’m going to have to make a special trip to the post office for many of the cards which will probably require extra postage and being hand canceled. That means I really need to get at least the rest of those kind of cards done tomorrow so I can take them all in at once on Monday.

I got some reading in as a break from the card writing and then watched Casino Royale this evening. I never made it to the shower, nor did I ever shave today. i feel so much like a slacker, but I guess it is OK every once in a while.

I haven’t found gifts for really anyone other than one. It just isn’t coming easily. I don’t even have a clue as to what most people would appreciate.

I bought tickets for Brad Paisley today – for both Idaho and SLC. Don’t ask me what I’m going to do with them both because I don’t have a clue, but I guess I’ll figure it out and just make that one heck of a concert week. Brad twice and then Garth Brooks. I guess that means I’ll be going to Idaho the last week of January for the temple open house.
