Trying to figure out if I want to put up the stupid christmas stuff when I get home or just let them stay in the garage and put them back in the attic til next year. I want to put them up, but I don't want to. Decisions, decisions.

What's on my mind? Oh, I suppose all the stuff I should be doing, instead of being on the computer...

cleaning out Aidan's toy box
packing for the hospital (eek!)
making the apple pie I promised DH a week ago
starting dinner so it can simmer a long time
folding laundry (which I will procrastinate for another 12 hours or so)
x-mas shopping
organizing baby stuff
finding the x-mas stuff

With that long list (though not as long as pdswifes, whew) I'm sure I'm even forgetting things...like playing with my son. Maybe I'll go do that now.

  • Vacation
  • Christmas shopping
  • Tomorrow's soil moisture test with the soil scientist
  • reconciliation of my government credit card. (Horrible computer program)
  • The 50 million things I have to do in the next two days before I go on vacation for a month.

how should i make the gravy or sauce for my chicken dish tonight?

do i have any lip balm in my car?

remember to pick up white wine on the way home. and go over to the letterman theater to pick up matching cbs sports sweatshirts for joe, fiona, and lucia. also, look around for other ideas for gifts.

string theory? c'mon, that's the best they can do? a solid unification theory is still out there, somewhere.

have to clean up more cat puke tonight. good thing i left the carpet cleaner on the first floor.

need to continue driving wedges into co-worker alliances. so far, so good. mwa-hahahahaha.

hmm, white wine, sage, butter, maybe a little rosemary. that should go well with flattened chicken breasts, rolled up with ham and muenster.

call baratta; invite to union's holiday party. in fact, anyone who reads this who is on the upper west side friday afternoon is invited. pm me if so.

lots of ot next week. need to plan when i'm gonna make all of the food for my dept.'s holiday party.

set up vcr to record nova, and the simpsons.
