Fed up

No, not with any person... other than perhaps myself. I'm tired of my house being a mess. I decided to start working on it today. Now, I haven't moved very fast, but I am making slow progress. I no longer use my computer desk. I've found that I prefer sitting in my recliner with my laptop on my lap or on my tray in front of the t.v. Yes, the epitome of laziness, I admit. But I did clean up the dog hair and trash around my sitting area and the living room in general. (I haven't touched the desk that I no longer use as it has become a catch-all for everything at the moment.) I had a headache this afternoon and after a big lunch. I still felt tired so I took about an hour and a half nap. I got up a little while ago and started attacking the junk on the bar in the kitchen. It is slow progress, but at least I'm making an effort.

I guess we're going to go to Albuquerque for Thanksgiving but it's going to be a brief trip. I do like seeing my aunt and spending time with her, but since it's my small bit of vacation time, there's a lot I want to be able to do at home. We'll probably leave Wednesday evening and stay all day Thursday and then come home Friday morning. I won't get the house finished before we leave as I have a rehearsal on Monday evening and a concert on Tuesday evening. I do want it clean by the end of the break, however. I am going to put up my Christmas stuff this year since I didn't do a thing last year. We'll spend Christmas in Albuquerque again, but I think it will help lift my spirits just having it up this year. It's not that I'm down or anything... actually I am quite content... but it just seemed so "dry" last year without the tree and stockings up.

Tonight Josh and I are going out to dinner with my dad and his gf. We're going to the Olive Garden to eat. We both love Italian food so we enjoy this treat every year for our birthdays. I've got to start getting ready in just a few minutes. I have on my cleaning clothes which would not be appropriate in public. Well, I'm off to make myself somewhat presentable.

Well, I hope you have a wonderful time at dinner. I have given up on my house, since this is the busiest time of year for me. Oh well, I go on vacation the week after Thanksgiving. Should be fun. I am thinking about making a trip to Oklahoma City. I have never been there before and would like to visit.

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving. I think you are right about the Christmas decorations. Sometimes even if you are going to be gone for the day, it still puts you in the mood for the season. :)
