Alex, Come Home!

So, there is some work being done around the apartments on the roof of the building (it was in need of some major work). Well, the fabulous roof workers are busy finishing up the roof, but they did forget one important fix--our dish! (It has been disconnected for over a week now). Now, I am really, well almost really, enjoying the lack of television, because it directly correlates with some positive results. Take these examples:

A. My time for reading has increased positively
B. My excuses for laziness have decreased significantly (fewer distractions, I guess)
C. My home is a tinge cleaner and dishes have managed to stay done
D. I have managed to find a ton of time for homework (which I have surprisingly LOVED)
E. Our list of recorded movies has shortened as movie-viewing has increased somewhat

Now, I noted that I have ALMOST enjoyed the lack of television. I offer my one sadness....the absence Alex Trebec from our life!

Dane and I watch "Jeopardy" every weeknight together, our own little Battle of the Sexes. Without this show, our knowledge base and competitiveness have both decreased! Alex, come home!

A Good Little Break

The holidays are fabulous...spending time with family, thinking about what is really important, counting your blessings. It is a refreshing time, and I really wouldn't mind celebrating holidays all year around. (I say that especially as I returned to the office today!)

Instead of giving you a recap of everything, I thought I would just say that Dane and I enjoyed the time we were able to spend with our family and friends. We had plenty of comfortable spend-overs, plenty of fabulous food, and had plenty of laughs. Gratitude for our family members continues to grow and grow!

I must admit that there really isn't anything better than this though...

A night at home in your very own bed!

Though I wish the holidays would last the whole year, I am very happy to spend a few nights at my own home and am very ready to get back into a groove.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!
