I’m proud of myself for being semi-productive today.  I’m the only one in my department right now, so that helps.  

We just got a fence installed in our backyard on Thursday and I want to sit on my patio for the next 5 days, drink beer, and survey my domain.  Tomorrow is also going to have really nice weather in my area so I may try to get my FI to go hiking.  I should savor the unseasonably warm temperatures while I can 🙂

@QueenOfSerendip:  I am barely working…I had three things I needed to get done…and that’s it…not to mention, my co-workers were thoughtful enough to provide me with an afternoon fraught with excitement and thrills by getting into a hellacious cat fight that has deteriorated into a fued of epic proportions…so yeah…not going to get anything else done here.

The kids come for Christmas tomorrow, lunch with my buddy on Sunday, I’ll run out the clock at the office on Monday and then Christmas…beautiful, lovely, sleep in and here’s a present honey, christmas!

yeaaahhhh I”m not working. We had snow here and I came to work anyway so I’ve spent all day kicking myself for not staying home. I’ve spent most of the morning trying to think of a good reason to leave REALLY  early.

Tomorrow cleaning the house, maybe some baking if I’m lucky

Sunday having my dad and his wife plus my brother and sis in law over for dad Christmas. Thus it all begins.

@QueenOfSerendip:  Meh not really. I got a few things done this morning and the rest of my day is dedicated to wasting time on WB.

I have two large Christmas parties this weekend, one of which I am hosting. I am taking Monday-Wednesday off so I am mostly excited about a five day weekend. Wooohooo to sleeping in!

@QueenOfSerendip:  HAH! Not working either!  Been in the office for nearly 4 hours and haven’t gotten a single thing done (shhhhh…)  Luckily, FI comes home tonight!!  He was stationed in MO (im in WA) in August and I haven’t seen him since he came home to propose in early October.  So excited!!  He’ll be home for 10 days so we have lots of wedding appointments (this will be the only time he’ll be home again prior to the wedding) and holiday parties and general shenanigans planned.

 I am home sick…it’s also FI’s birthday! Grr, and here I am sick on my best earning day and the last day I’ll be paid for until Jan, and I might miss FIs birthday party 🙁 If it held off for just one day I’d be $400 richer and wouldn’t be disappointing my love. 

Feeling really bad for myself today lol

I don’t even go in to work for an hour!  So I will be working, getting over the flu but doing better so I hope it is slow and I can leave early.  I was going to make a turkey tomorrow but then couldn’t even get out of bed yesterday so it got downgraded to lasagna.  Sunday I will try and sleep as much as possible because I have to work an overnight shift!

@QueenOfSerendip:  We are hosting xmas eve and new year’s eve. The first will be about 50 people, probably a few more, and the second will be 2. Guess which one I’m looking forward to most 😛 

Saturday my pup has surgery. We are going to start (yes, start) xmas shopping between dropping him off and picking him up. That’s the only day we’ve got to do it. 

Stupidly we also invited another couple over for dinner on Sunday…because we aren’t cooking enough! I don’t have to clean, thank god for cleaning ladies. I will bake/cook though. 

I plan to do some reading, writing, and work as well.

YES. Everybody wants their prescriptions TODAY. NOW.

Work was a cluster fuck of entitled people telling me that because they have a gift exchange to get to, I should just fill their prescription that has zero refills. Uh, no. Sorry.

Very unproductive, but I’m trying my best!  I have off until January 2 after today.  I plan to do lots of backcountry skiing, resort skiing and cross country skiing.  Going to a holiday party tomorrow so I’m going to prep the food tonight so it will be quick to cook after skiing.
