I’m posting late today. We went to a Christmas party last night, didn’t get to bed until after 1, so I didn’t get up until 10. I’m feeling very UGH from all the rich food. And puffy and generally desirous of vegetables and lean meats. I am mentally giving the cookie dough in the fridge the finger. Okay not really. I’m trying to tell it NO in a very firm, grown up voice.
So of course I had another monster workout today. 469 burned calories and an episode of Fringe later, I’m contemplating a nap.
What I really should be doing is writing the Chapter 5 lecture. I have zero inclination to actually do this. Because, you know, Fringe is getting really good (I’ve been DVRing all season and am just now catching up) and it’s Sunday and a holiday break and I have no desire to do real work.
I don’t even feel like procrastinating with fiction, which is often the case. Although I do have to say I think Isla’s (heroine) relationship with the Big Bad who kidnapped her all those years ago is starting to gel in my head. So I should be ready to start writing that maybe tomorrow.
I finished all my wrapping yesterday. Hubby still has a few things that I don’t know about, but it actually looks like Christmas with all the presents under the tree.
Of course the book I ordered my father’s wife is lost somewhere to the US Postal Service because apparently when you use the 3-5 day regular shipping from Amazon, they send it via FedEx to a certain point where they hand it over to USPS and it disappears and takes more than a week and a half with no word, when it should have been here 4 days ago.
I’m still working on kicking this cold/sinus infection’s butt with Zicam and nasal irrigation. For the record, hydrogen peroxide is a great way to directly kill a sinus infection. Hurts like a sonofabitch though. Even at 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide to 4 parts water. And to think the nurse’s article I read suggested full strength. :shudder:
So I’m off to take a nap…I mean write a lecture.
Then hopefully a family viewing of White Christmas later.
