Decorations are up!

I really don't have anything to blog about. Just about all my Christmas decorations are up. I've read a couple good books lately. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, it started out a little slow, but then I really got into it. I want to eventually read all six of her books. Bright Shiny Morning by James Frey, I may be weird, but I really enjoy his writing style. This one was a novel and all about living in Los Angeles. It followed several different couples/individuals, from the homeless to movie stars. My Sister's Keeper, by Jodi Picoult, was one my book club picked out a long time ago and I finally go to it, great read, even though it's sad! I like to go to the cheezy Nicholas Sparks novels in between other reading. I just picked up the most recent one yesterday, The Last Song. Right now, I'm going to read up on a nonfiction, Adobe Creative Suite and try to teach myself all about Adobe Illustrator. I'm excited!

I know I'm a few days late, but I wanted to share my Thanksgiving. This is the fourth year I haven't been home for Thanksgiving. The first year, I worked, watching the BBC version of What Not To Wear marathon and ate a cold cut turkey sandwich. The second year, I worked and ate a late traditional dinner. Last year, I went to a traditional dinner, pot luck style with some co-workers and worked. This year, I didn't work and hung out with Tally, made a frozen pizza and had a glass of white wine. Sounds exciting, huh? Ha. With this trend in place, Thanksgiving has come to not really mean much for me. I guess I'm looking forward to Christmas a little bit. I'm flying home for a week, even though I have no money (my fault) and I really like to travel, so it will be fun to be around family, even if it means being away from Tally. Ha ha. I started putting up some decorations, which I didn't due last year at all due to a mild depression. Oh and I almost have my shopping done! Woohoo. Didn't take long, since my source of funds is a bit challenged. Hope everyone else enjoyed the first part of the holiday season! Cheers!
