Cleaning break

It seems like forever since I've posted anything about cleaning. Oh... that's right... I haven't cleaned in forever. I procrastinated as much as I could this morning, but I finally got started by soaking the dishes and cleaning the kitchen. I was awake at 5:45 for whatever reason but forced myself to stay in bed this morning. I should have gotten up earlier than I did, but it's my vacation so I can do what I want. Yesterday I read the third book in the Twilight series. Just one more to go but I'm going to hold off on reading it until I get some work done around here. I spent a lot of time yesterday uploading music to my new player and this morning I created a few playlists. I have a "working" list that is full of upbeat music to keep me moving. That's what I'm listening to right now. I also have my "melancholy," "romantic," and "hopeful" music. I could create a multitude of lists because right now I have about 600 songs on the player. I even have a handful from this decade including (dare I say it) one hip-hop song. I never thought the day would come that I would actually have such "music" on my player. But I am really happy to have a player again. I have missed it very much. I just need to get better earphones for it.
I keep worrying that Marty is going to start reading my blog again. He hasn't it read it in almost a month but I said I would try to not write as much about him. But it's my blog and I guess I can do what I want. It's my way to vent, share, talk, whatever. I have really held myself back for fear that he might read and I haven't really talked about the many things on my mind. It's nothing that I'm getting totally worked up about, but I have my concerns. I may need to go back to my paper journal and start writing there.
I guess I need to get a tree up today if I'm going to do it. I'm still debating about a smaller tree just to make it easier. I have to go to the store later to get milk and some grocery items. I guess I'll decide then. I need to wrap a couple more gifts for Josh and then I'll be good to go. I should probably get a couple of stocking stuffers for him. I guess if I want my stocking filled, I'll have to do it myself. I did get a present from my aunt so I'll have something to open Christmas morning. I suppose my brother and sister have something for me, but I don't know when I'll see them. My dad said he would do Christmas for Josh and me when he comes to visit in January. I have no idea about Marty. I guess my gift from him will be his trip to Orlando - if he really decides to come. I really hope he does. The last I talked to him he said that was the plan... but it would be foolish for me to hold my breath in that regard.
I don't mean to sound pessimistic right now. I still have hope, but I still have that intuitive feeling that something is yet again amiss and unless things change, it will still be there for a while. Well, enough about all this.. I gotta get back to cleaning.

Alles Gute zu Weihnachten. I hope you'll have a good time, as You like it.
I do not think that you sound negative, thoughtfull may fit? I did my cleaning here by doing the dishes and have a round with the vacuum cleaner. Enough for the day.
