I kept myself busy, obviously.
I had been thinking about slowing down or changing my posting schedule for Advent. Looks like not making an official decision turned into making a decision and slowing down.
I could’ve been busier. I probably should’ve been busier honestly.
My Christmas shopping is done. (Cue the Hallelujah Chorus) I will be thrilled when the last box arrives on my doorstop so I can wrap gifts and be through with phase 2 of Christmas gifting. (Phase 3 is the giving, of course).
I’m re-watching Rome, because it’s just that good that I can’t help it. This is probably the first show I’ve watched from beginning to end & then re-watched it. Did I mention that’s its really good?
I intended on watching the 200th episode of Catholic Weekend live last week but ended up going to the gym and then getting my haircut instead. I did watch when I got home (before the show notes were posted). It did not disappoint. If you haven’t caught on to the Catholic Weekend podcast I suggest you do so.
I’ve discovered that listening to podcasts helps me focus if I have a lengthy task (like writing). I can’t work in complete silence. At the moment I’ve been putting on The Airline Pilot Guy for background. I started with episode 90 and worked my way forward, for now. (Clearly an SQPN bias is developing)
Tuesday was the first ever #CPChatNow on Tw!tter. I did my best to keep tabs on it throughout the night and REALLY wanted to jump in but with a few due dates rapidly approaching I made myself watch from the sidelines. Hopefully there will be more events like this in the future.
NEWS FLASH!: The next #CPChatNow is going to be December 11th!
My Christmas (& Birthday) list is turned in. I’m still changing my mind 50 times a day but it’s out of my hands now.
I’ve received a deluge of medical bills lately. I’ve had a few appointments lately so it’s not unusual but it appears I’m being double billed (at least). Let this be a lesson to you all on how important it is to check your medical bills, just as you do your credit card bills.
I got news on my arthrogram. It’s good news. But as with any good news a redirection is needed (if you’re me) so there will probably be a separate post about that at some point.
I got my glasses fixed but I’m still wearing the old ones. I like being able to see clearly but I also have a vain moment now and then (and this is one of them).
This post has very little to do with Advent but the title fits the time of year.
Maybe I’ll have better luck next week?
