Merry Christmas Eve eve!!!! For those of you already at Christmas Eve, I am envious!
Thank you WordPress for the slew of fake likes. That was fun. I used to like hearing the WordPress notification chime on my phone. After the other nights post, I almost began to dread it. Less than 2 seconds after I posted, someone had liked it. I was skeptic, so I looked into it. Turns out it’s not legit, nor were 9 or 10 that followed. (I did get a few real ones, thanks guys!) I have to admit, I don’t get the point. Its supposed to be about clicks, but they don’t even do a great job of making it look realistic?
Sunday’s shopping trip was pretty good. The crowds were not insane and weather was freakishly warm- 70º!!! I was able to finish my shopping and my wrapping on Sunday 🙂 Today was pretty good at work too. Other than that same piece of equipment that crapped out a on Friday the 13th, died again. When we left for the day it was still not working. 😦 Hopefully the tech guy will be out early in the morning tomorrow.
I really had planned on running this evening, but somehow I forgot caffeine today. All day. I fell asleep on my lunch in the break room. I have been trying to transition from Diet soda to coffee. I eliminated the diet soda entirely 2 weeks ago and replaced it with a 12oz real soda. I would also try to choke down a coffee. It’s not going so well, still can’t stand the taste. Then this weekend, I bought some tea thinking I would try that. I noticed today that I stupidly bought caffeine free. Today, I some forgot to get a soda, and never managed to drink my coffee. By 2:00, my head was pounding and then the nap. Oops.
Tomorrow at work, we are having a breakfast potluck and an ugly sweater contest. I don’t one so I decided to make one. Hmmm, this is not my strongest talent. The cat also discovered tinsel for the first time and it was apparently better than catnip. It turned into a tug of war for the garland.
Living in central California, I long ago gave up on snow for Christmas, but fog or clouds would be awesome!! I am not a fan of bright sunny Christmas’s. Fingers crossed!!!!
Wishing everyone who is traveling, safe journeys!
Is everyone ready for Christmas?!!
