This is the time of year when I start to freak out because of a problem I create for myself. I always take vacation in December, but never go anywhere. As a result, I usually get a lot of writing done (though I failed in that regard this year), a bunch of cooking, and a lot of aimless wandering around my house.
Shauna + boredom = never a good idea
Whenever I get bored, I plan stuff to do. However, it always seems to work out that the stuff all hits in early January. Sure, I'll teach that class next month. Of course I will help you cater your Superbowl party. And I can absolutely have that blanket done for the baby shower...
And then BLAM. It's January. And I am SWAMPED.
I stole 5 minutes from myself (likely from sleep) to explain why I have been such a piss poor blogger as of late and say this:
Part of the reason I find being busy in January so frustrating is that all I really want to do is sit in a movie theater and absorb everything pre-Oscars. Having only seen a couple of the best picture noms, I can strongly suggest that you SEE LINCOLN.
I'm serious. I got really sick of the hype. I never can sit still through 2.5+ hours. I didn't actually believe Daniel Day Lewis could be THAT good.
The hype is warranted. Find three hours this weekend and see the movie. It's an experience you should have, and you should have it in the theater.
That is all... back to recipe hunting while crocheting and teaching a class :)
