Some bright spots:
The pleasure of sleeping in and lounging in bed reading on a day off of work.
The fun of picking out a skinny, spare 'Llao-shaped' Christmas tree.
The accomplishment of writing of chunk of a story...even if it wasn't the one I'm 'supposed' to be working on!
I wish! I left out the pleasure of running around the Mega-mall working on Christmas shopping and spending money I don't have yet. I fear my tolerance for all that craziness appears to dwindle by the year. ;P
My apartment sure smelled lovely this morning, though!
I'm still looking forward to seeing you there! =D
