After a great (if short) visit with my parents for Thanksgiving, a long drive home followed by two fun gatherings at friends' houses, I am home again. I popped out for coffee this morning, then put seed in my birdfeeder. I am now sitting comfortably on my couch, watching through the window as little birds fight madly over the yummy new treats. I have a textbook beside me and a laptop in front of me. I have finished my reading, and I've outlined my paper.
I've observed (with puzzlement) my across-the-street neighbors load all the big plastic toys from their daycare into the bed of a truck and drive it away. I've finished my coffee and switched to Diet Pepsi. I should probably, as MF noted a few days ago, remember to eat some lunch. But first, I should remember to get back to work. This is week five I'm finishing up, so after today only three more weeks. Then Christmas - yay!
I should put up my Christmas tree. I should do some shopping. I should string some lights outside, and actually I really need to sort my mail. My office is a mess, I need to go through and put everything away nicely....
No wait. I'm supposed to be doing homework, that's right. I should do that instead.
