In other news, here are some personal highlights:
- This will be my first Christmas without a live Christmas tree. Incidentally, this is the first Christmas season that I am not sneezing, coughing, wheezing, or altogether a walking allergy. I believe there might be a connection.
- Last week, my roommate saved my life. There was a snake on the sidewalk at the bottom of the stairs who had no intention of moving, no matter how hard I glared. (or cowered). I called her and she came downstairs with her trusty Mr. Clean scrubber stick and shooed him away. I no longer walk barefoot in the grass.
- Unless I find a new place to live, I'll get to experience my first eviction. Also, a nice man told me that all the wires dangling from my closet ceiling light is a fire hazard. Frankly, I was more concerned about the big hole and all the fuzzy ceiling stuff that falls on my head.
- Finally, I am very excited to see two girls who mean the world to me. In just a few weeks, I get to see Amanda and Jen! I can't wait!!!
