I'm not sure if we were just busier this year or if I am getting old and feel the work more, but I was (well, still am) utterly exhausted from Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday's work. I let myself sleep in on Thursday (I had no cooking to do for Thanksgiving dinner, more on that in a moment) and still felt blah. I hit the snooze bar about five times this morning, and normally I try never to use it at all--when I finally got to work I semi-joked to my assistant manager that if I hadn't had to pee I'd still be in bed. "I know what you mean," was her reply.
I had Thanksgiving dinner with my friend Linda's family, and it was nice. I was asked to bring rolls and then volunteered to bring the pie because, well, bakery. Normally I take pride in taking home-made things, but I figured that I could just buy my pumpkin pie and dinner rolls from work because I *had* made them.
I was able to leave work an hour early today, came home, and immediately crashed down for a nap. I hadn't meant to take a nap: I'd laid down because I had a bad cramp in my right torso, but then I just couldn't stop myself from sliding into sleep. Eventually I roused up enough to drag myself from bed and start the process for getting food in me, but it was slow going.
I am resolutely ignoring Black Friday, which I think has gotten way out of hand.
But I may do some online shopping for me this weekend. Horrible, I know, but Goulets is having a sale on their ink samples, and this would give me the cheapest way ever to try those fancy Pilot inks. Stupid of me to buy them, given the number of samples I already have, but it's been a hard month, I'm trying not to comfort-eat, and ink samples are a cheap luxury. So there: I'll be stupid.
This weekend will be writing and housework. Like most of my weekends, really, except that I need to start getting more dedicated on the housework part. If Judgement Night starts in January as planned, the clock is now ticking on getting my place clean enough for company. And I still need more chairs for the living room. And find shelves for all my books. So many books.
