I TRIED to wait until Friday, I PROMISE, but you know, I’m starting to feel the spirit a bit, so I decided to go ahead and play some Christmas music. I also thought I’d wait until Friday to start holiday shopping, but nope. I ended up picking up a few things at Target for Booba and some other people. Considering the situation, I am definitely going more frugal this year, but that doesn’t mean the gifts I choose will be any less personal or special.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!! It’s going to be weird, I’m not going to lie. Those of you who read Chris’s journal will know why. But I’ll make it. And Friday I get to see my mommy and my little Booba, who I haven’t seen since last Friday, and I miss him! I’m glad he’s with my mom, though, because he’s so happy there. All he could talk about last week was how much he loves his grandmommy and how excited he was to see her. I love calling her and telling her about that, because it makes her so happy. She’s thrilled to be spending Thanksgiving with Aidan again.
I walked to the post office today to mail a letter (starrlyte, watch your mailbox!) and buy stamps. It was a pleasant walk. Nice weather. Then I came home and lit a Nag Champa and for some reason, I sneezed about 10 times. It was weird. I’m okay now, but still. That was so strange.
I booked a LONG trip to Chicago in February. I was planning on going anyway, but not for as long as I ended up booking it. February 9-18, 2007. It’s going to be a busy week. So much going on, with book releases and 30th birthday parties and all sorts of other things. I’m really looking forward to it. It’ll be just the perfect thing to break up the endless Ohio grey days.
I managed to get ahold of a copy of the Philly Dylan concert I attended. I listen to Desolation Row over and over because the arrangement on it is just so freakin’ amazing. I also keep listening to Tangled Up In Blue and Highway 61 Revisted. It’s fun to think “Wow, I was sitting in the audience and bopping my head during this song!”
Tonight, I will be playing on the computer, journaling, and writing letters. Reading, relaxing, all that good stuff. Should be peaceful.
And of course, a survey.
