Almost there...

I do not understand this word, "Relax"

I had this fantasy throughout Dickens Fair - at the end of Dickens I'd have two weeks off with nothing to do and all the time in the world. I could get everything caught up and done then.

Okay, stop laughing so hard already.

Turns out I've been running nonstop, from Fezzi tear-down on Monday to the Plough to Browncoat Ball planning to Browncoat holiday party and Serenity purchase on Tuesday to finishing laundry, running errands, and massive baking on Wednesday, to finishing baking, making a Tivo Ambassador video, lunch at Google, and dinner party at my coworker/roommate's house, and finally trying to clean the poor house on Friday and deliver all the baking to the neighbors before running to Sacramento and doing last minute Christmas shopping en route. Then there was Christmas Eve with my grandparents, and Christmas day starting from my mom's house, going to my Aunt Debbie's house, going to my dad's house, going to my grandparent's house (to teach them how to use the new Tivo), to Ian & Sara's house for Christmas night with friends, and then back to my mom's for sleep. A little sleep. Okay, very little sleep once Pixel figured out I was packing and going to be gone again. He made a right nuisance of himself. Four hours of sleep later, I got on a plane to come to Seattle. There, greeted at the airport by Camryn, Ella, and Dirk, we went back to their house, then Tracey, Camryn and I dashed off to Skipper's for lunch, and then the Sci Fi Museum. It was cool, but a little too scary for a 5 year old. So back home again, and dinner at Atlas, a groovy little diner/grill in U-Village. And then the next morning I rose to head to Richland. Here, the pace is a little slower. Lots of Apples to Apples, yummy tangerines, and a wacky store called Griggs. Tomorrow I'm back to Seattle for one more day before heading home to go to Cirque du Soleil. And then we should figure out what we're doing for New Year's Eve. I'm thinking maybe sleeping would be fun.

  • Geeze...you weren't kidding when you said you were busy. Even with all my running around the East coast this break, I think you've got me beat. Best of luck catching your breath.
