It is quiet around here. Quiet is good. It allows for contemplative thinking about plans and goals for the upcoming New Year. I got a good couple of hours in cleaning up my office (which is where all of the Christmas extras were stored — wrapping paper, tissue paper, presents, etc.)
I felt a little antsy later in the afternoon, and I thought I had talked myself into buying this as a belated Christmas present for myself. So, I headed up to the mall and there wasn't a parking space to be found — I ended up parking way far away in another shopping center and hoofing it over to Nordstrom. And believe it or not, less than an hour later, I walked out of the mall empty handed. I just couldn't justify the cost. I just didn't *love* it that much. And, to spend that kind of money, I have to be in LOVE beyond measure with the item. I also went into the Apple store to eye the 15" Mac Book Pro I didn't get for Christmas 😉 (I guess you have to have something to work towards).
So, I came on home and fixed some dinner, and am going to watch the Sound of Music.
