December 20, 2009 - Sunday

Clear with some snow and wind.

This morning when I woke up I sat up in bed, swore a little and asked my husband if the living room clock said 6:00 or 12:30. I can't see very well when I first wake up, and I was hoping it was 6:00. It wasn't. Sigh. Still, it was kind of funny. I got up, made the bed and then hung out for a while. I would like to point out that I was dressed long before my husband though. He was bopping around the apartment in his pajamas for a long time.

We tried going to the post office to pick up my parcels, but we got there too late. Sigh. They closed for parcel pick-up at 3 pm. Oh well. We had lunch at New York, New York, then went over to the electronic store nearby. I got a new mouse for my computer. I've gamed too much on mine and it doesn't want to work properly now, and a new mousepad. I have the worst trouble with them.

We came home for a bit. F watched some of Alias Smith and Jones (I did too!) and I printed a few nengajo. I made some for him and a few for myself. I like changing mine for the person I'm going to send them to.

In the evening we went out again for dinner to Grado. I was horrified because they gave me a note from the ex-student that I don't like. He had seen me after all and wants me to call him. I don't want to! What should I do? Lose the note? Ignore it? Wait until after the holidays?

We picked up some groceries for hubby and then came home. We watched more of Smith and Jones and then I watched Veronica Mars. I like the show, or what I've seen of it, but I haven't been able to watch an entire season or more than 3 episodes in a row, so I don't know where I am.

Anyway, that was my day. It was a very relaxing sort of fun day, except for the driving. It's tough around here as all the roads are so snowy. Most of the little local roads are barely one lane now, and of course Japanese drivers are maniacs, so I will have even more grey hair after this winter is over!

That's it for me. Tomorrow I plan to walk over to the school and see if I need to shovel, and if I can do some paperwork. I have a lot of work to catch up now. Night!

Hmmm, that is a sticky situation about the ex-student of yours. If I were you, I would just call him and find out what he wants. Get it over with so it doesn't drag on and on. Whatever you decide let us know. I am in the same boat as you regarding Veronica Mars, I catch a few episodes here and there and I like what I see but never really get the whole story. Hope you have a happy holiday season!

Thanks Trisha! I was just thinking about this situation again this morning. I'll try to call him once Christmas is over!

Veronica Mars is great, but it is always hard to find on the schedule here.

Thanks for visiting :-)
