SLEEP is the word!

For the next 18 days, the alarm will not be going off at 4:30 AM. I won't be crawling out of bed, jumping into a shower and getting ready for another day of work.


There will be no Christmas in New Orleans this year......... the current plan is to visit in February.
There will be no Christmas with friends in Boston or family in Canada........ the current plan is to visit mid April.

Christmas will be spent in Tampa Bay; socializing with a few friends, attending two parties and entertaining at home Christmas eve.

True to my word, I spent most of Saturday morning in bed. It was raining outside and the perfect time to rest.

Shopping was on the agenda and I left the house mid afternoon stopping off at Starbucks for Gingerbread Latte, which was addictive! While enjoying my delicious drink, I scanned the newspaper and found my horoscope for today "This is not a good day to go shopping. Buy nothing except food." Damn, damn, damn!

Uncertain what to do next, I defied the stars and hit the malls........

Remembering the horoscope, I decided not to purchase any electronics, fearing something might blow up or whatever.

I did purchase a blanket, a picture frame and the Polar Express DVD. [the pugs want to watch it Christmas eve]. Hopefully, the blanket won't strangle me, the picture frame will not fall and shatter, and the movie won't burn up in the DVD player!

Tomorrow is another day.

Superstitious? WHO ME!

You got 18 days of vacation time? How did you pull that one off? My job stalks me if I go on vacation for more than 7 days consecutively.

I'll bet there are some really happy pugs at your house having you home for days and days.

Enjoy every single second and put some kisses all over those pug faces from RQM.

Vacation time! How lovely.

I'll be thinking of you and the pugs, curled up watching The Polar Express on Christmas or whenever!
