Actually feeling good

My boss sent us all home at 2:30.

I don't know if it was the shortened day, the fact that I made significant progress this morning on something I've found very difficult, or what, but I've been very productive tonight. I've done laundry, soaked and blocked my practice scarf, written a long email to someone I've owed one to for a few weeks, and listened to a CD someone recommended I hear. I've also coordinated with everybody I need to coordinate with for tomorrow (or at least left messages) and verified that I have everything I need to make the waffles I promised to make for breakfast.

I wish people were posting tonight, although I absolutely understand why they would be busy!

I guess this is the proverbial Unplanned Time. I can do some TAW homework, crochet, work some on my original scarf pattern (I need to translate a block diagram into stitches), read (Harry Potter, which I'm finally embarking on, or the 3rd Elizabeth Willey novel), do some work-work, finish watching CoE, channel-surf, listen to DT radio interviews, or, conceivably, write.

(Sounds pretty planned to me, actually! But the key thing, I suppose, is to consult myself on what I actually want to do rather than what prudence or productivity dictate I do next.)

I did a lot of nothing very much, and it was fun. :)

I'm not exactly "busy." Just catching up on laundry. My MIL hijacked T-Day a few years back and won't let anyone do anything. I don't know if that makes me relieved or annoyed. I'll be posting soon, if you're still up to read it. ;-)

My sister and I are still negotiating with my mother about how much we can/should do. This year, I, at least, didn't insist on doing anything, and I don't think my sister, who is currently a full-time student, did either. I hope that was the right decision and she wasn't hurt that she had to do it all!

You never know with moms. I was surprised my mom has never put up a fuss about my MIL's takeover. She seems happy enough not to cook either. :D

If we made the wrong choice, I'm sure my Dad will let us know. In a nice way, of course. He's very protective of her.

I suppose if either my sister or I had got married on schedule and had children, we might be hosting the Family Thanksgiving by now. But we haven't, so in a way we're still living the Slightly-Post-College arrangement. I'm not sure my parents completely trust we could make green beans or rolls without supervision. :)

Surfing the web, lying around, and crocheting.
