No, not really, but it sounds interesting, right?

Mama is BACK!!! Last night I ran laundry, changed the sheets, dusted, screwed around on the computer, took every last thing off our fridge downstairs and reorganized it, and slept like a log. I got up early this morning and finished the laundry and had time to putter around before leaving. I’ve been working on the organizing/purging plan for next year and generally screwing around this morning in between answering emails from profs who really should know better.

Anyway, it’s been interesting. I got some Christmas pressies from my pals at work this morning.

They know me pretty fucking well, I’d say. At any rate, the closer we get to the shut down on the 24th, the fewer people there are here. My boss was here this morning just long enough to delivery gifts and then she skedaddled. I’ll be leaving early this afternoon to go help Mom with the girls. They have a baton twirling performance thing tonight that I’m going to and they need their hair done. My mom is an amazing woman and does lots of things, but she has never been one for doing much with hair. Fortunately, I know how to do very lovely French braids. (I will see if I can get a pic of them tonight in their splendor)

I walked in this morning with K and we both sort of asked each other why in the hell we didn’t take vacation for the 2 days we’re supposed to be here next week. Neither of us had a good answer, but we both agreed that there won’t be much work going on at all. My plan is to continue to clean up around here and get ready for the next semester. I’ve already done quite a bit but there are still a few things to take care of. And on Tuesday I’ll take down my Christmas decorations.

I’m also working on a plan, of sorts, of things I really want to do over the break. What are your big plans?
