I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, I swear. I just haven’t had much to say about anything lately. Work has been busy enough to keep me busy, and Christmas is kicking my ASS.
I’m usually one of “those people” when it comes to Christmas. By December 1, my tree is up, my cards are addressed and ready to be mailed, all the presents are bought and wrapped. Then I get to kick back during December and go to parties, HAVE parties, drive around looking at lights – all the stuff I always feel like I don’t have time for when I don’t plan.
But this year I kept thinking, “Oh, yeah, I have to do that. Oh, and that, too. Oh, I’ll get to that one later.” And then it was December and HOLY CRAP, people. Where did it GO? I remember being a little kid, and the days would just DRAG. And I’ve been a super-prepared grown-up, and the Christmas season was just long enough. But this year? HOLY CRAP, AGAIN. That’s how I feel right now. Yeesh.
I was going to get a bunch of stuff done on Saturday, but then I had a computer emergency. While trying to move all my iTunes media to an external hard drive, I managed to lose it all. Crap. So I spent several hours on Saturday trying to figure out how to get it all back, to no avail. It’s gone. Finished. Kaput. Now I have to re-burn all my CDs back into the program. ARGH! That’ll be my project over my Christmas vacation, I think.
In other news . . . well, not much. My back has been hurting, I think because I went from very little exercise to LOTS of exercise, and although the spirit is willing, the body (as they say) is weak. My back isn’t QUITE up to the level of vigorousness that I’m putting it through right now. So I had to dial back on the TKD classes a little bit: all those rotating kicks are KILLING me (and not in a good, “My muscles are sore” kind of way). So I’m doing a lot of Pilates and crunches, and hopefully after Christmas my back will be strong enough to take the activity.
Annnnnd . . . I think that’s all I’ve got right now. (Of course, now that I’ve written that, I’ll read someone’s blog and think of something fabulous. Isn’t that how that always works? LOL)
