My mood has swung UP. We did get the lights on the tree before Christmas (was over.) I think I'm done shopping for the trip, and I've been distracting myself with book research. Yes, of course I'm writing the Great American Novel. So now I'm getting the ornaments on the tree. When I'm done, we'll wrap it in a sheet until we get back home. Better Half is out in the garage finishing the (truly gorgeous) carved box he's making for Recruit's gift. He carved the Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblem into the top! He's never tried anything that detailed, and it DOES NOT look like an amateur did it! I'll post a picture when it's done.
I worked out for 20 minutes on the new rowing machine and nothing hurts! I've been starting slowly, I know those things cause a lot of back injuries. I tried a treadmill, but it's not practical, since it's my legs that get weak and tired when my maybe/maybe not fibromyalgia flares up. I needed a sit-down workout. Yes I'm pathetic, but it felt great to get some sort of exercise! Plus with BH outside and the TV off, I'm doing the ipod shuffle. Does the "Emperor Waltz" go well with Steve Earle and A Flock of Seagulls? Today it does, and I'm not even drunk! Yet. I just poured myself a double. So which is worse, the 2 shots of Bailey's or the 2 shots of heavy whipping cream I used to dilute it?
Stress makes me spastic. I want my boring life back. so anyhoo, Merry Late Christmas Y'all!
