How’s it going? It’s been awhile. Are you ready for Christmas? I’m sure not, but hey, what gets done will be done and what doesn’t I’ll have to let go of – eventually. And any late gifts will just have to be late!
Anything exciting planned for the holidays? We’re making the usual rounds and then my bro and I are getting the heck out of dodge for a road trip to see my squishy nephew. I can’t fricken wait.
We’ve already had a delightful holiday with our G-d Family which was great fun because they’re awesome people and my niece and nephew have decided I’m cool to talk to. (More on this soon, I had a delightful day baking with them a few weeks ago!)
In other news, I ended up in a bar in Rome NY last weekend. Plans changed as they sometimes do so I went out with my old buddy Troy and a bunch of his friends from his school program. (Remember him from karaoke days?) I didn’t think a random bar in Rome NY was going to be fun, but we had a good time. It was a cross between the Bel and 6th Ward. Not quite a dive bar, but not fancy at all. It had a pre-make over Side Door feeling, but was bigger. Really my kind of place. There was a possibly misguided burger, several drinks, some darts played by others and some really crappy pool played. Good times.
(If you might possibly have been to the Bel and the 6th Ward or Side Door prior to the make over, you’ll know just how at home I felt!)
Not much else is new. Swimming lessons are good, I’m doing another session of Saturdays and my private lessons are progressing. Work is work and some days are more challenging on many levels than other days. Crafting is going. Some shows are better than others and while I’m committed to one in February, I don’t know how many more I do. I love the crafting, but I think the local shows I can do just aren’t the right venues. I’ve been volunteering for American Cancer Society doing the Wrapping Up Cancer at the mall. I spend a few hours a night wrapping presents for others for a good cause. It’s fun and over the last few years doing this, I’ve met some nice people.
What’s new with you? Any recent adventures? Any coming up?
