Goodbye Christmas

I’m up late tonight kind of waiting for the bedspread to finish in the dryer. I guess I knew I shouldn’t have put it in, but I decided to do it anyway. Larilyn came over and took down the Christmas decorations tonight, thanks out to her for her kindness to help old Scrooge out. I know we were a few weeks behind in taking it down, but the tree was actually looking pretty good until just this week when I stopped watering it. It looks really empty now where it used to be and I feel like I need to find something to fill the void.

I went to the temple this morning for Craig’s endowment. It was fun to go with some people and meet other down there. I guess it just goes to show that we need to get together more often for trips to the temple. I actually think I had a harder time getting up this morning at 7 than I do Tuesday mornings at 4. I was so exhausted after all the walking yesterday and then being out late that it took it’s toll on me. When we got home from the temple I had to just sit and relax for a while. I spent some time over at the Dowden’s this afternoon as I had to go and fetch my phone back and we sat talking for a while.

Things went well at NAMM Thursday and Friday. Friday we got there kind of late and ended up paring in the Disneyland structure and walking. That seemed like a good plan since we got to save $12, but it was a bit of a walk. That probably wouldn’t have been as big of a deal if we didn’t continue walking and standing around once we got into the convention. And then after the show we went to Disneyland till they kicked us out at 10. That made for a long couple of days.

I decided to lug the camera around the show floor on Friday so I could snap some pictures. I was hoping to find some good products and maybe get some pictures I could use for something at work. Since we walked directly to Disneyland, I ended up having it there too which is something I’ve never done before. It actually worked alright carrying it on the rides, although it certainly meant that I was holding on to it for dear life. I did get to snap some pictures in the park though and on some of the rides. I was courteous enough to not use the flash unlike many of the other people with cameras.

Oh, we got to go see Teal (think Cheesecake) on Thursday night. That was great and has been long overdue. We were thinking about going back Friday, but she was a breaker so it wasn’t clear if we could see her or not. She excused us from coming Friday night, but I made a promise to come back soon.

I don’t think I have any major findings or revelations for today, so I’m going to call it quits and get to bed finally!
