It's Like A Heatwave

12 Days
9 Hours
22 Minutes

'What's with the countdown?' you ask... Well, it's how long I have until Christmas. Less than 13 days until Christmas [as I write this]. Why then, do I still see no snowflakes? Why then, are the temperatures dancing around in the mid-60s? The only thing I want to see in the 60s in December are maybe videos from The Doors or Jimi Hendrix (a few others perhaps)... but NOT the temperature. What do I have to do to see some freaking snowflakes around here??

I guess I may as well stop with the whining... I know what i'm bargaining with living in this area of the country. If I want a blizzard, I should be in Colorado or Alaska :) Ok, so enough of that. I've got to stop being a Holiday mood-killer.

I have yet to send out my Christmas cards, mostly because i'm still trying to locate them within the chaotic realm that I call home. Come to think of it, I've only received a couple cards in the mail myself, so I guess everyone is running a bit behind schedule (whatever 'schedule' is). Still haven't finished my gift shopping, still haven't gotten all my little projects complete. But I'm still full of high hopes... never giving up on my procrastinating, impossible self... I think I can, I think I can (heard that before).

Not much else to tell today, Mr. J and I went for our evening workout yesterday after running yet more errands, and we did chest press (with barbells), Deadlifts, and rows so my muscles are quite sore today, but I have a feeling they'll be even more so' tomorrow. I happen to enjoy this muscle pain, there's something satisfying about knowing that you worked out well and have burning muscles to show for it. I'm still having problems going to bed early enough, and getting up early enough to go walking before work in the morning. I know I need to knuckle down and change my sleep patterns, but insomniac habits die hard. Anyone with good suggestions is welcome to offer up some pointers on sleep habits!

I'm off to... well, not sure really... but whatever it is, i'm off to it... You guys stay safe and keep those smiles taped on securely! :)

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?
It came without ribbons.
It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes or bags.

And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?”
-Dr. Seuss (from 'The Grench That Stole Christmas)
