So, apparently cabins in the Hocking Hills must be rented for two nights at a time on summer weekends. There goes that anniversary idea. We’ll have to take a look at what’s available more locally in the way of a cheap but fun getaway. Too bad about the heat, or we could hit the Ren Faire. We’re saving that for cooler days, though.

Looking forward to seeing all the family on Saturday. Birthday cake, ice cream, children playing and maybe even a round or two of Munchkin. 😉 Have to buy presents at work tomorrow. Yay, last minute shopping.

Hurt my back last week, went to the chiropractor. My spine is apparently lovely, but my hips are crooked. Knew that, we’re working on fixing it. Back finally feels better today.

Getting bored of food again. Wanting more variety. Craving cheese(pizza, mac & cheese, Parmesan covered pasta) a lot lately, too. Joints about the same as always. Not terrible, but not ideal.

The school jobs are a total no-go. I am once again pondering data entry. I’ve only ever done bits of it at my jobs, but I wonder about doing it full time(or ya know, part time, I like flexible schedules). It just doesn’t seem like it’d be fulfilling, unless it was at a really good place. Inertia tends to win. Especially when I have ‘decent’ hours at work and only tiny bits of non-retail experience.

Lots of rambling today, I think I’m done now. See you next week.

The Eve of Christmas Eve December 23, 2010

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Only one shopping day left. I’ll be at the store bright and early to welcome all the last minute shoppers in with Nook in hand. It hasn’t been bad this year. We’ve been busy and sales are still climbing, but it has not been unmanageable. The lines are long, but not nearly as long as I’ve seen them. People are grumpy, but I only work mornings, and the Grinches apparently come out at night.

I’ve gotten a few books from friends, clothes by proxy from my parents, and a few odds and ends that I need for the coming year. I’ll be doing some post-Christmas shopping on Amazon as well, thank you Gale and Larry. My Aunt Mary and Uncle David adopted a wolf in mine and Rich’s name, so that’s a pretty cool gift as well. And Dr. Who’s most recent season is sitting on the mantle with our yearly calendars, just waiting to be opened.

Saturday, I’m going to be attempting my first ever lasagna. Lots of cheese, but no ricotta. We’ll see how that goes. We’re also going to be seeing True Grit, to share the holiday tradition of dinner and a movie with his parents. Have to work phone calls to family around that, but it should work out alright. Going to see my brother and the kids next weekend, Christmas on New Year’s Day. So that will be fun as well.

It’s a good, slightly snowy Christmas, here in central Ohio. Peace and love to all.
