I had my flu shot this morning and now my arm hurts. I automatically chose the left arm since I am right handed and after the fact realized that I use the left arm to carry SkyWalker since I am right handed and need that free... won't that be fun? Because my apt. was at 9 a.m. Vader took SkyWalker to daycare (late of course. he couldn't be on time even if he was Hiro and could stop time...). The flu shot took all of 2 minutes so I am back home now. I've cleaned the unbelievably disgusting countertop next my sink in the bathroom, eaten breakfast, and showered. Right now I am leisurely drinking a cup of tea and on the internets. I do need to leave early so I can cash a check and have some damn money in my wallet, fill a prescription, and hopefully get my hair cut. I have to make my dinner, ooh just remembered leftover turkeyballs, and either have lunch here or pack that up too.
Thanksgiving was lovely. It was so nice to be with *my* family this year. There were so many people to change diapers (I taught SkyWalker to go to Nana and say "Nana poop." so she'd change his diaper. It was great.) It was like a real holiday. We played games, we went to a playground, we had a great time. The only downside was that it really made me realize how much I wish we were closer. I don't want to be 20 minutes from them either (like we are from the in-laws) but an hour or 2 wouldn't be bad. Somewhere in the middle would be nice, so we weren't so close to the in-laws but not so far from my family. It would be great to live in Connecticut near the ferry and just be a ferry ride away. But that will never happen. Vader will never leave his family, I don't want to leave my house and we're just not movers. And by the time Vader could leave (i.e. his parents are no longer around) there would probably be less of an impetus to do so... So as SkyWalker has been saying recently "I stuck."
Someone from TW must be reading this since right after I wrote about it cutting off the last minute of Heroes each week (on the DVR), I noticed the guide said 1 hour and 1 minute. I watched the last 2 episodes last night (am finally caught up) and nothing was cut off. Yay!
I should really start moving but the idea of leaving the couch is just not appealing. The dogs are outside getting dirty and barking as normal and it's just so nice to sit and not move. I am in serious need of a vacation. A not going anywhere, not doing anything, just being lazy vacation. If I could get this vacation to last the rest of my life that would be great. I really don't think I'm cut out for this working business. The dogs are now on the deck looking in the door and staring at me like they know I am just goofing off right now. Isaac has a particularly funny incredulous look on his face right now like "Lady, you have *something* to do! Why aren't you doing it?".
I am so not used to free time.
