I’m having a level-headed Tuesday in preparation for Merry Thursday-through-the rest of the week. 🙂 I am working on mellowing out for the holidays.
I’m in a good mood today. And I stayed at work until 7:00 PM tonight. Perhaps it was the second cup of coffee I had this afternoon! I’m leaving tomorrow at 2:00 PM to kick off my winter festivities. And by winter festivities, I obviously mean drinking tea and wrapping presents, drinking wine and baking, and watching a lot of DVDs (including My So-Called Life, Eclipse, the third season of Roswell, and a lot of other beauties that get hidden under my bed when company’s coming).
I still have to come up with a vegan baked good idea for a holiday exchange. I was going to go for something fun and festive, like a vegan pumpkin spice cake. But my friend is more of a traditionalist. And it will mean no hour round-trip to the Whole Foods for Earth Balance (since I just found out they are the only seller around here). Mama Pea’s Double-Chocolate Single-Chin Brownies! I will probably add more vegan chocolate chips and go for the solid double-chin. 😉
I am taking a breather from apartment searching. I still love one I saw on Saturday. But I also want to take a couple of classes at a county college in the Spring, and I would like to not be selective about getting my ducks in a row. I was resolved two nights ago that I would be waiting, yet again, for the apartment… Now I’m thinking that after the holidays, and a week of clearing my head, I might consider going for both at once. There’s a lot to think about. I’m going to ignore it tonight in favor of trying to get to sleep.
I am currently downloading the new Glee Christmas soundtrack! I watched the episode while singing along next to our kerosene heater, and they told me the soundtrack was now available! I needed something adorable to put on my iPod for work tomorrow. We’re having a holiday lunch, and I’m taking in candy for the gals I work with. If I didn’t think I would be the only one, I would haul out my Santa hat. As it were, it’s itchy. My holiday spirit will just have to shine through enough to make up for it.
