December First

Oh, lord -- how did this happen? I have a whole slew of things I really really really need to do This Month, and while it was Last Month, I didn't have to do them. Guess what today is? (I've included it in the title of this post, to spare you the work for scrolling down to see when I posted this.)

So already I'm feeling late. Now, you may ask why I didn't get anything of This Month's items done Last Month. Um, several reasons, none of them really satisfactory. (A satisfactory reason would have to be pretty extreme: documented abduction by aliens, month-long catatonia, that sort of thing.) First, the Month Before Last was really busy, so Last Month was a huge exhalation of breath, followed by a delightfully relaxed start on long-range projects, like Starman's niece's quilt. Next, Last Month had some natural problems: the election, Thanksgiving, and some emergency dental issues (which have trickled over into This Month, unfortunately). And finally, I just didn't feel like it. Okay?

I have legal work to do. I have to talk to our delightful D.A. about the fact that, while he's such a nice man, I still think he's violating my constitutional rights, and I just can't have that. It's the principle of the thing. I have to buy Christmas presents -- no, really, I don't already have that done! And then there's that dental work.

Plus I'm in food jail. Again. I have to answer to the Wii-ble (Hub 1.0 calls it "Madame Wii" but that's far too mature for the voice that comes out of the TV), which is tracking changes in my BMI. And "Cookie Weekend" is less than two weeks away -- that's when Hub 1.0 comes up and we spend the entire weekend making outrageously yummy cookies to give to people in his office, and this year, to people in Montrose. So I'd better be extra good for two weeks before the Wii-ble figures out what I've been doing that weekend!

And don't think I don't know that I need to be blogging. I've been neglecting you as well.

So much to do. *sigh*

But first . . . lunch!
