Is it Christmas break yet?

Only 1 1/2 weeks of school to go.  I’m not really all that anxious actually.  Matt and I are hosting a Christmas party on the 22nd so I think time is going to fly by since I have to get the house ready by then.  I spent this past weekend unpacking all my Marvin items.  I had about 5 boxes of stuff.  I found places on the shelves and my loft area looks like a Martian explosion.  I also hung curtains in the guest room and put away all the unpacked boxes in closets.  The house is slowly coming together.  I need to hang some artwork in the living room and the curtains in the kitchen.  I got the office/workout room cleared as well.  Now it’s a matter of general cleaning I need to get done such as running the vacuum, sweeping, mopping, cleaning toilets and such – the things I love – not. 

Work has been busy as always.  My library and Scrabble club has been keeping me really busy, but it has been fun.  The kids that hang out in the library are really neat and I think they are really learning from playing Scrabble and doing the projects I’ve put together for them. 

I got a little irritated with Matt the other night.  I was trying to get him to talk about his future plans and he totally avoided my questions.  I let him know that I gave a reprieve for a few days, but that we would continue the conversation at some point and discuss our relationship like adults.  For a guy that is 52 years old, he can be a little childish – but I still love him. 

I’m looking forward to the 2 weeks off for Christmas though.  No place to go and I’ll get to take it easy – unless I decide to paint a room or something.

I bought my house a year ago this week and am realizing there will never be a done stage...I'll always find something to do/move/paint/change. I'm having a ball!

Tell Matt that all your readers are going to gang up on him one of these days, maybe he'll decide to open up about his plans, lol.

Happy holidays!
