Ms. Marvel Project

Made it to Friday

I decided to take a work from home day today. Life has been so hectic this entire month, and I just need a break, even a small one like this, in order to make it through to the end of the year. Don’t get me wrong, things have been fun — they just haven’t exactly been leisurely.

On Tuesday, we went to the last concert of the year, again in Boston. We had a much easier time than we did during our last trek into the city, and this time we went with D’s sister. We saw Dir en Grey (a Japanese metal band) and the Birthday Massacre. The show was excellent and we all had a great time.

Christmas shopping is officially done and I’m just waiting for one more package to arrive now and I can finish all my wrapping. I’m very happy to be done early enough and not have to do any last minute scrambling. I finished my gigantic photo book project I mentioned a few weeks ago as well. The reason it was gigantic was because it first involved scanning all the pictures I ever took when I was a kid… and just to give you an idea, the end total ended up being almost 1200 pictures scanned! I guess I really loved taking pictures back then!

As for the Ms. Marvel Project, I’ve gotten a little off track this past week and some of last. I suppose it’s only natural that this happened because of how much has been going on. I didn’t go to the gym at all this week and I’ve not been eating the best. Last week I got in 2 days of working out, so at least it wasn’t a total wash. I don’t know what next week will bring, but I’m not going to beat myself up if I can’t get in my usual 4 times to the gym during the week of Christmas. It is the holidays after all.

I hope all your weeks have wrapped up nicely and if you’re visiting from one of the Friday blog hops… hello! Please introduce yourself, and if you want, answer the Ms. Marvel Project question of the week: If you’re celebrating, how much holiday preparation do you have left?
