Happy December!

More about me than you ever wanted to know

Warning: The following is pretty long and rambling, and doesn't really have an overarching point or theme. Or pictures. Just to let you know.

First of all, sheesh, you people like kittens! :-) Yesterday's post got more comments than anything else on this blog, with the exception of a few Knitting Olympics posts. Thank you all so much for your advice and support. I really appreciate it, and am taking it all under consideration. Kitten update: kitten has been slightly delayed, because apparently his or her littermates all left at about the same time, and the mommy is sad. So they want to let her keep the last kitten for a few more days. And I figure that a little more time with mom can only be good for kitten. ETA is sometime next week. I'll keep you posted.

So, it's December! REALLY? Already? That seems rather odd. But I love December, so I'm happy. Except that it's still like 70 degrees out. I have a friend in the Dallas area, and her kids had a snow day yesterday. But no, in New Hampshire it feels like May. What's with that? I object.

The next time I will have a whole day free will be, at the earliest, January 7. Well, no. I actually have no plans yet for December 31 or January 1, but my parents always have a party on 1/1, so I have to figure out whether I'll go down there for that, or do something up here, etc... I'm tempted to just say "forget it" and stay home for New Year's, but then I worry that that sounds better in advance than it actually does that night/day when everyone else is out doing fun things. So I'll wait and see what various local friends are doing and then decide.

The lack of time at home is an issue because it seems right now that all I want is to be home. I pretty much just want to read and/or knit and watch TV/DVDs. All the time. I guess this isn't really that unusual. It just feels more severe at the moment, which is probably a product of how busy I've been. So I'm sitting here at my desk pretty much just thinking "I JUST WANT TO KNIT!!!" Pleasant. I'm also in the mood to read, but neither of the books I'm reading are really grabbing me. I'm going to try to finish the Munro book tonight, though. I bought some brain candy at the bookstore last night - new Meg Cabot and new Nora Roberts (her first historical!) - and those will be my reward when I FINISH something. See? I told you I'm all about the self-bribery.

Tonight I actually have the evening mostly free, so the plan is to alternate knitting to episodes of Grey's Anatomy with reading and cleaning the house. And you cannot imagine how much I'm looking forward to this. I'm such a homebody.

Kittens are like crack, we just can't get enough. Enough of looking at them, that is, not smoking them.

Yes, you are a homebody, but that's okay - your evening plans sound fabulous to me! (Except the cleaning part. But that's not really going to happen anyway, is it?)

You know, I totally get the homebody thing - I always stay in (well, apart from Cambridge KTog night...) but tonight I went to John's work's Christmas do - and it was fun - but staying in would have been even better...

I'm guessing you have enough advice on kittens? Ours was about 12 weeks for various reasons - the vet seemed to think this was a little old, but whether this was because it was a problem, or just a little unusual we never worked out.

I'm a homebody, too. But alas, it's our work Christmas party..

Your evening sounds wonderful to me! =)
SOmetimes I need some time to be a homebody and other times I need to be out and about with people.

Anyway, I never picked up you are in NH! I just spoke to my mil who is in New Hampshire - we go each year. She lives near Conway. Conway and Manchester are about the only 2 places in the entire state I know LOL!

It's a boy! I like to call him "Little Mr Lydia". And I need to get knitting for him. And Martha. I'm thinking a few baby quilts are in order.
