Today I am leaving for my trip to the mountains! yay! I can’t wait. Though I am still not done packing and never wrapped a present (guess I’ll just do that there) I have plenty of reading/knitting to do for the week. I am bringing my Rastputin Book that I still haven’t finished, as well as “The Alchemist”, which I am extremely excited about. It revolves around a boy who encounters 3 different people who change his life and allow him to follow his dreams (and help him not to forget it)… I might have to read that one first!
The past few days have been busy and interesting. I hung out with a lot of people I haven’t seen in a while and ate out waaaay too much. But it was great. So far my list of unexpected free things is growing:
~candy bar *sunday*
~free bagel at the dunking donuts drive thru *monday*
~free gift certificate in the mail for $20 to Rock-O-La from their headquarters *tuesday*
Saturday I went out with the old home group and had a great time with them at Maggiano’s and Barnes n Noble. We all just chatted the night away over great food and wine and just really relaxed. On Sunday, I sang and then went to lunch with some Vintage people I haven’t really had a chance to hang out with. I am looking forward to getting to know them better. I mean, they love olives!! :-p Monday I helped meckola and Kristin get some more stuff into the apartment and we made the not-so-well-thought-out decision to eat at Taco Bell and THEN go to Wal-Mart. But the good news is, the Christmas tree is up 🙂
Yesterday was a terrible day at work that ended up nicely. Of course the day before vacation is hectic, but nothing that can’t be cured by a lil blue moon and sushi. SO, that brings me back to today and the fact that I am still not packing. I guess I should get on that.
I hope everyone has an awesome Christmas and I will see ya in a week!!
