Christmas Eve

I'm enjoying my long weekend, I go back to work on Tuesday, Jim Wednesday. Boy is his check going to be small this time. But I got in most of my overtime, so I should be ok. I've been sitting here planning dart tournaments. That is really focusing our lives right now. There's work and darts, with his folks sprinkled in there. I'm concerned about money but as usual, Jim says don't worry.

I haven't been really writing for a while. I'm so tired after working 9 hours and driving 2, that if it's not a dart night, I'm usually dead in front of the tv as soon as I get home. I'm going to start working out three days a week to see if that helps any. I have my first RA dr appointment next month so I think, or I should say, I hope, she can help me out of this weariness.

I'm reading a book one of the Wicked's sent me called Double Dutch? I think, my bag is in the car so I'll have to get it out. Its not bad, sometimes the wording is a little academic and the main character is a woman, but is written by a man. And you can tell. Funny, my one mystery I have floating in my head more than written down is with a POV of a man, a medium type that doesn't always like what he's been given. Maybe I should think about writing him. Men have always been a mystery to me, look at my love life. Can I write one convincingly?

The other Christmas surprise I got was a book by Ann Parker, Iron Ties. I must have entered a drawing cuz it just showed up with the author signing the book and everything. It looks good, maybe I'll get into it this weekend, or next, we have two where darts are not a priority but the apartment is screaming that it needs to be cleaned and I swore I'd send Alex some cookies.

I wonder if there is a magic pill that will give me the energy to get the must do's done and the want to do's started. Am I letting the urgent take over the important? God I wished I had thought of that. When do I find time to go back to school? To write? To see the art gallery Reinesance collection?

Merry Christmas to all.

Happy Holidays

I thought I had saved my holiday letter and was going to post it here, but no luck. I'm feeling overwhelmed lately and not doing well in getting things done. So since I have a few minutes from my break at work I thought I'd add a few lines here.

We are in first on Sunday night darts. Jim took first in league for ADA. And we've started a new league on Wednesdays where we play with another couple. I shot like crap last night but great the first night. There has been a lot of rain and I think that affects me more than I would like to admit. Jim plays now on Thursdays too and will be replacing his Tuesday night league with a Monday night one. So we are still too busy. It's tournament season however, so that means we need to be on our game. Jim has taken home money (after beer and quarters) two weekends in the last month. Lets hope that continues.

Holiday cards are out, gifts sent and only two more to worry about. There was no tree this year, no room, no time. But next year I am going to go all out and really enjoy the season. Of course I say that every year. I did get into the food drive for the local families, so that helped. That reminds me, I wonder what our "winnings" are. They have had three raffles this season for gifts and I didn't win anything in any of them. But one girl who carols with me, she won something in all of them.

Here's to a happy holiday season and a blessed new year. I've been thinking about what my 2007 goals are going to be so I think that will be my next post. Merry Christmas!
