8 Dec

Stop and Shop Old Fashioned Oats are too old-fashioned. They use the recipe from before they invented taste.

3am, and I’m very tired, but unable to sleep. My nightly night meds are apparently doing battle with that coffee I had this evening. I have to learn to commit to either sleeping at night or staying up at night, and not telling my body to do both.

I can’t believe it. A Christmas special that references the birth of Christ and the gifts he was brought as why Santa brings children presents.

When I was in the Army, I had a soldier who believed that he had prophetic visions of the coming apocalypse, and that during those days he would be a warrior fighting against the forces of evil. I don’t know where he is now or what he is doing, but I bet he’s very excited and anxiously awaiting December 21 like a kid waiting for Christmas.

Feeling tired and lazy today. Not really depressed. Just drained. Think it’s going to be a TV and internet afternoon and evening. Guess I’ve been exerting too much energy recently. Or I’m just tired and lazy.

So far this year my son has maintained an “A” average in all of his classes in his first year of middle school. I’m so proud of him, and give kudos to his mom for making sure my son is studious.

Not sure if I’ve mentioned it, but I’ve lost 30 pounds since August.

Who says cats can’t learn English? If I say “feed kitty”, Fudge jumps up and runs to his food dish from anywhere in the apartment every single time.

It’s funny how some nights I need a full 14 hours sleep and others I’m wide awake after a solid three hours.

Today I set out to do nothing but chill out and relax. So instead I was extremely productive and got a lot done. Kind of the opposite of a normal day.

Note to self: When fridge is empty, I can keep it at a lower setting. I froze my leftovers.

 

Signs that I haven’t grown up yet (and probably never will)

English: Thomas Nast’s most famous drawing, “Merry Old Santa Claus”, from the January 1, 1881 edition of Harper’s Weekly. Thomas Nast immortalized Santa Claus’ current look with an first illustration in an 1863 issue of Harper’s Weekly, as part of a large illustration titled “A Christmas Furlough” in which Nast set aside his regular news and political coverage to do a Santa Claus drawing. The popularity of that image prompted him to create another illustration in 1881. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
