I had an enjoyable birthday today. Slept in late, started making Christmas candy, went to our daughter's piano recital, out to eat then back to Christmas baking, time for bed now, good night!

It's 10PM and I spent the last 2 hours watching a movie and halfheartedly working on my no-sew blankets. If I spend another hour on them, I can get one more finished and start on another one.

Happy Birthday Simon! Mine is tomorrow and I bet I'm older.

Up at 2:30 this morning, made a pot of sauce with meatballs and a pot of soup.

Yeah, I couldn't sleep, either. Going into work early, see how much I can get done before everyone else shows up.

I used to do that so I could sort of glide into my day.

In those days I used to smoke so I would go in early to compensate the company for my smoke breaks, drove my co-workers crazy!

I've come to the conclusion that smokers are the only people who actually take regular breaks...since I quit I have to plan my breaks consciously. Sometimes I even forget lunchtime until it silly late to take it.

Just saved myself having to buy a new room thermostat. I noticed the technical support contact in the leaflet and they talked me through a slightly involved procedure which I was able to carry out satisfactorily.

Must be something going around. I managed a total of 3 hours of sleep. This place has Chevy truck mattresses - "like a rock". ;-) Of course, Himself slept just fine. He's like a lizard. He could sleep on a real rock! Can't wait to get on the road so I can sleep in the car.
