So, here’s what I did on my Xmas Long Weekend
(WAHOO I HAD THREE DAYS OFF FROM WORK…BOO-YA!!!)
(Srsly, did I tell you that I almost cried when I found out I had 12/26 off from work?)
12/23: Only had to work until 5. Stayed until 5:09 – I win! Gene and I went to dinner at our favorite local restaurant and grocery shopped for Christmas (eve) dinner
12/24: Baked pineapple upside down cake. Had a liiiittle problem transferring the cake from the cast iron skillet to the platter. I would like a round platter bigger than my skillet. We had greater success with the sweet potato casserole and rib roast and dinner was super mega delicious.
12/25: Xmas Day! Talked to my family and saw Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Sherlock Holmes in the theater across the street from the house. At some point, I folded some laundry. Yes, we are the most festive atheists you’ve ever met.
12/26: The world re-opens! Yay! Gene and I had breakfast @ Bob Evans and later I went to the mall for tennis shoes to replace the pair I lost. About 20 minutes after returning (shoes in hand), I found the shoes, hiding on a dining room chair. Sigh. I’m keeping the new shoes though. Pffht.
12/27: Back to work. Worked 10 (bleepity-bloppity) hours today. Gene’s temporarily out of town so I’m lounging on the sofa with the dogs, watching Greys Anatomy on Netflix. Gene’s on his way home now, which is good because Boss Belinda has opened the overtime floodgates and I fully intend to take advantage. Yay.
