It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

(…but not for long). I can’t believe Christmas Eve is already upon us. I’ve been listening to Christmas music since Halloween, the tree has been up for a month (over two weeks with presents underneath), and Randy and I have a huge pile of Christmas cards that we’ve received. And tomorrow, we’ll head over the […]

White Christmas

The snow never stopped! I got home from work around 2PM on Friday and it just started snowing. Although I know it technically stopped for a spell on Saturday evening, there seemed to be flurries all day during daylight hours. Then it started up in earnest (even worse than Friday) yesterday until, all told, we […]

Marshmallow World

Oh boy, am I confused. This afternoon is supposed to be our holiday party at work (starting at 4pm). it takes place on-campus in a function hall. Yet this morning I arrived in the office to find an email announcing that the office is closing at noon because of the snow storm. So….is the party […]

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I guess it’s time for me to put the scooter in storage because with the weather pattern we’re currently in, I won’t be using it in quite some time. Depending on what station you watch, we’ll be getting between 7 inchs and 12-14 inches. Of course, it’s also going to start mid-day…on the Friday before […]

Christmas Boogie

And by “boogie” I don’t mean dancing. By boogie I mean green/yellow phlegm that sprays out of my nose and throat. Yep, the reason I’ve not blogged for the past few days is that I caught a nasty, nasty, nasty cold. WTF? I had a much longer post written but it only posted the first […]

My Favorite Things

Ok, here’s a LONG Christmas list (probably the longest I’ve ever done), taken from Karyn’s blog (Vexed in the City). I warn you…it’s LONG! Favorite Christmas… Non-Jesus-related song: Baby, It’s Cold Out Side Jesus-related song: O Holy Night Santa-related song: Must Be Santa Fictional Character: Aunt Bethanie (Christmas Vacation) Dinner’s Main Course: ham and all […]

Christmas Wrapping

Last night was a L-O-O-O-N-G night. Randy and I pulled out our collection of Christmas gifts and began wrapping. Between friends, my parents, my niece and nephew, there’s quite the collection of boxes (and a halndful of gift bags) under the tree. Of course nothing is really worth a lot (if somebody broke in to […]

Christmas Luau

As I commuted to work on Monday¬†temperatures were¬†in the low teens. BRRRR. Yesterday, they started in the low 20’s, but were in the upper 40’s by the time I got home from work. When I woke up on this mid-December morning it was already 63 degrees. It guess it’s true what they say: “If you […]

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

First it was freezing cold yesterday. So cold, in fact, that I had to take public transit to work and leave the scooter behind. Then this morning it finally warmed up (into the 20’s…woo hoo) and I decided tobe a man and take the scooter. And it started snowing. It was nothing heavy…mostly those small […]

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

D’oh! I forgot to upload the photos from the Christmas Tree decorating party on Friday night. You’ll just have to trust me that it was a fun time and that the tree looks spectacular. On Saturday, Randy and I did a bit of holiday shopping before going to see the most recent Ryan Landry play […]
