Twas The Day Before Christmas

And I'm stuck in the house.

Well, it's another snowy day. It was supposed to rain today but it's still snowing. (Actually, it's both.)

I'd planned to run a bunch of errands today. Go to the gym. Get some groceries. Hit the post office. Do some much-needed laundry. (I'm wearing my last pair of underwear as we speak.) But, as much as I need to get out of the house, I'm not sure it's going to happen.

Alas, it's official: my Christmas cards will be late this year.

Of course, I say that as if they've been on time in years' past. Still, it should be pointed out that this year, my excuse is not procrastination, but a legitimate one: snow. (An excellent excuse which overshadows the fact that my Christmas cards are not addressed yet.

Or written.)

But, I did get some stuff done this morning. I finally posted online a few of the things I was working on yesterday (in lieu of Christmas cards or my book) and even finished reading The Autobiographer's Handbook which, despite sounding dry as toast, was both inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable. I'll be posting about it, hopefully, in the near future.

OK, lunch time.
