I put my last full day of work in today for a while.
I'm off now until January 4th.
Which is good because my left ankle has decided to swell up like a grapefruit! Oh, well...LOTS of caretakers around here. And I can elevate it and ice it, sleep in...God...SLEEP IN. The JOY of not waking to an alarm clock for a week!
My company is here until January 3rd. One of my Christmas gifts was a whole house cleaning from a maid service who are coming TOMORROW, so not only will I get to lollygag, I will lollygag in a glistening clean house!
I'm going to take a blogging break as well so that I can only do minimal computer time for a week.
Instead, I think I'll watch my daughter go ice skating.
Watch the marathon of The Big Bang Theory on New Year's Eve. Maybe bang some pots and pans around if I make it 'til midnight.
Read. Read. Read.
Stay warm in my aqua blue bamboo sheets with the electric blanket kicked to high to keep my always cold feet warm.
Visit with Vince, Thuan, Tinton and Nirand.
Take a nap with Socks.
Take a nap with my daughter. Good hell, I will take a nap with any of the four guys mentioned as long as they throw in an ankle rub.
Watch Jeopardy! with my family and beat their pants off. Because I can. I am surprisingly good at knowing little known facts about Victorian religious beliefs, islands in the Pacific and words associated with knitting.
Eat all the Vietnamese and Indian food that Thuan and Nirand can make.
Supervise the taking down of the Christmas decorations. Right now, it is too early, I'm still in the Christmas glow. By January 2, I will be ready to stick a fork in Christmas until next year.
Speaking of January 2nd....I will watch the Cornhuskers win their bowl game.
Take long hot bubble baths. Rub my skin down with baby oil.
Hold my partner, kiss my partner, have carnal knowledge with my partner. Several times.
So, Happy New Year to you all and I'll see you next year!
