Countdown to Christmas.

I felt so good this morning when I woke up, in spite of the fact that it was 5:30 am. I was rested. I had energy.

I had gone to sleep at 7 the night before.

I'm all for being rested, but I can't stand going to sleep so early. It feels like I missed out on a whole evening of festivities - even if, realistically, I would've spent that evening painting my nails or watching a movie that can be watched just easily some other time. Even worse, it's only 6:30 pm and I'm ready to roll over and go to sleep.


In other news, I am (thank goodness) over half done with Christmas shopping. I've gone a little overboard on some people but I think it is worth it - even if my credit card bill will make me long for a better budget in January.

Interesting things for this week:

Tuesday: I'm going with Kirsten to see a preview of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe tomorrow night. I will be posting about it here, but don't worry - I'll be sure to use spoiler cuts so that your eyes are safe.

Wednesday: Shopping with Kitty. I'm not sure which mall we'll go to yet.

Thursday: Seanie and I will go have a romantic date in downtown Mountain View! An afternoon shopping and browsing bookstores, followed by dinner and tickets to Into the Woods with my parents, who will meet up with us when they are done with work.

Friday: Full eight hour shift, after which I will (hopefully!) get my Christmas cards finished up and mailed.
