Nothing beats french pressed coffee in your favorite russian pride mug, while slowly getting ready for work, even though Philadelphia is digging out of snow and ice.

Not going to work would be better.

i'm way behind in xmas gift making [19 Dec 2006|08:04am]
[ mood | exhausted ]

yikes! i keep doing things that cut into my time with making the rest of my gifts. i barely knitted last night because i went out for drinks till 11pm and needed to go to sleep by 12:30a so i could get up for work this morning. for some reason i keep snoozing my alarm clock and haven't gotten up on time for work in 2 weeks. oooops.

so school is done for the semester, thankfully! i have 3 weeks until my spring classes start. i have so many things in my head that i want to do between now and then. i wonder if i'll have time.

i need to make sure i don't slack this evening. i've got an office shindig, and then i'm forgoing the gym for knitting, since i am physically burnt from last night's workout and running around like crazy these past 2 weeks. i need to make a screen for some tee-shirts and finished a few pairs of slippers. work gets in the way sometimes...

my kitty keeps sitting by the space between my stove and my sink, and that makes me nervous that a little mouse is going to pop out. grrrrr. i do love how my cat responds to her name being called though. i need to make an appt with her vet. she has excess earwax in one ear that needs to be fixed. i hate taking her to the vet because they always make comments about her weight but it can't be helped! she's on a diet, but she is just a little fatty.

ugh i have to go to work now. staff meeting at 9am. at least i get to leave at 4p to get holiday party mashed potatoes and other nosh. mm.

what?! spring semester starts when? [17 Dec 2006|12:25pm]
[ mood | grumpy ]

i'm finishing my last assignments for the semester, looking forward to my lengthy winter break...only to look at the academic calendar to see that spring semester starts on january 8! ew. next year, jan 14, and the following year, jan 16 so why do we have to start so early this year?

ugh. that means that i have 3 weeks from when i email my assignments to when i start class again.

i'm so not taking summer classes this year. i'm tired of grad school already and i'm only half done with the program. note to self: working full time and going to grad school and having a social life...kind of, really exhausting.

back to mine remediation.

the last 2 nights have resulted in drinking 1 glass of wine each night, and waking up the next day feeling like i was wasted the night before.

ew. is this what it feels like to get old?

[ mood | angry ]

determined to keep up with my "going to the gym a lot" plan i get ready to depart on my gym adventure.

as i leave my apartment and try to lock the door behind me...the lock breaks. the key just goes round and round and round and round and no locking mechanism works!
