And Then There Was One


Well, three if you count the parents.

Everyone is safely back into their routines, old and new,

And although the tree is still up (we got distracted by Doris Day and "The Glass Bottom Boat" this afternoon) I must admit that Christmas is over.

Tomorrow is Tuesday, which  means Laundry Day, so I'm not promising to get the tree down until Wednesday. I have incentive, in the form of a coffee date, to have it done by lunch time on Wednesday.

The elusive incentive.

I may even have the wherewithal to throw out the stale Christmas cookies and make new ones between changing loads in the washer and dryer tomorrow.

And I'll finish watching "Bedknobs and Broomsticks", which we picked up at Best Buy on the cheap.

If I'm feeling particularly optimistic when that's over, I'll give "Fiddler on the Roof" a go. For $7 I replaced the old VHS tape that I gave away when we moved. I used to like the first half (it was on 2 video tapes) so I'm not sure how the DVD will work. After the wedding fiasco about half way through it got a little sad, so, like I said, if I'm in an optimistic mood...

Bed is calling my buggy eyes, even though I had a two hour nap this morning, (which is why the tree didn't come down this morning...) so I think I'll call it a day.

The first week back is shaping up to be a busy enough one. I won't be bored, that's for sure, and I  may not have time to feel lonesome.


  1. Oh man, if we lived in the area, I'd be over there in a second to watch Fiddler with you. I've been secretly planning on swapping out my dad's dvd for our vhs version for a few years now. But if I can find it cheap somewhere I won't "have to" do that. :)

    Have a great day! Miss you!

    (Oh, and I always imagined myself being in a production of the movie and being the girl who marries that revolutionary guy -- the girl who sings "Far from the home I love". I love that song -- though I pretty much love them all.)

  2. Fiddler on the Roof is playing in Edmonton at the Jubilee. Just a little FYI. :)

  3. great movies...all of 'em.
    glad you're making the time for naps - they are very important when needed...and when not needed. :)
