Friday December 18, 2009. What I like to call my 16th Wedding Anniversary. With lots of love to my better half for sticking with me this far!
I am taking the day off, which sets me up for a nice three day weekend. Technically I took half a day off yesterday as well, but since I was in the office butt early, it almost doesn’t count. Then again, whenever I can get out of the office before 5PM I count that day as a win. I hardly ever write about work, so work with me for a minute. The point here is that I have the day off; what to do and how to spend it?
Tonya and I have a babysitter lined up for tonight, but it is a long push from 5AM to 6PM before the babysitter arrives! Plus the weather sucks – rain, rain, rain. The boys are going to be stuck in the house; who wants to go out and get seriously wet in the process? Besides, it is the week before Christmas; every store this side of the Chattahoochee will be packed.
Thankfully we got all our shopping done early. 95% accomplished via Amazon. What would we do without internet shopping? If I could get beer delivered direct to my front porch I would never have to step foot in a store again!
I was thinking about having a Star Trek the Original Series (Star Trek TOS) marathon – the Blu-ray versions are spectacular – but no one else in the house appreciates the classics. I watched several episodes on Season 1, Disc 2 last night, which means I still have 18.25 discs of Star Trek TOS of joy in front of me. Needless to say, the family is thrilled.
I’m sure we will sort it out – trying to figure out what to do with the kids on a day off, even a rainy day, is a good problem to have to sort out.
