Life has been crazy for a while so…here’s a photo montage to catch things up.
I went to NYC for Thanksgiving and did some things I couldn’t do here in Podunk, SC:
1) saw Precious. and cried and cried. Precious
2) saw Hair, and was just a bit taken aback right before intermission.
3) saw Good Hair. and laughed and laughed.
I also got to take a tour of the Financial District and get my picture taken with the Bull, and George Washington. Then we schlepped all the way up to the West Village (!) to see the house from the Cosby Show. It still looks the same. 🙂
I came back home to a little less crazy than I’ve been dealing with, but the same fluctuations that have become standard for work these days.
Helped do a Christmas play with the children at church and made an enemy because I insisted on referring to the Magi as wise ‘people’. We don’t have a lot of boys at our church, and the wise people were all girls – so I referred to them as people or women instead of men. Simple Simonette wasn’t pleased. I’m over it, but apparently she’s not. C’est la vie.
I was blessed to find a $50 off mystery coupon from Bloomingdales in my email, just in time to get the Wellies my sister’s been wanting, and I got to go see the 4-day-old cutie-patootie little boy that one of my friends had last week.

In the meantime, I got to go to a lil Christmas party, meet some new people, and sing some carols with a harp. I avidly watched and rewatched all the episodes of The Sing-Off because I could listen to a capella music forever and a day. Being a self-proclaimed harmony junkie, it was as though NBC had waltzed into my brain and said, “hmm – I think we could make a show out of this”. (IMO – the top 3 groups were exactly as they should have been, and I think the best idea would be to put them all out on tour together. I’d definitely go.)
Then came today – sleep has been fleeting but the day was comfortable, comforting, delicious, and delightful. We snacked, opened gifts, watched White Christmas, and enjoyed a lovely dinner.

This is a nice way to close out the year. Here’s hoping 2010 is exponentially better than 09. Merry, merry!
