It's Monday alright...

The good news is that our offices are only open today of this week. The bad news is that I received about 100 emails between Friday and today. The follow-thru in me just hates knowing that's waiting for me when I return to work. I know they will be here when I return, and that's the problem. That and I certainly haven't finished off those waaaaayyyy late final report letters that just keep getting pushed down the list. And I really expected that. One of my numerous problems is figuring out how to just let go.

The last few days, I've been having a really hard time coming up with funny tidbits to share. I do have a couple of things to say that I think are funny, but I'm pretty sure that someone might want to have me committed if I were to say them. There are times that my honesty these days my have people looking at me a little funny.

I am looking forward to tonight though. I'm going over to Matt and Misha's for dinner and games. Matt and Misha have a heart for adoption and taking in strays, they just didn't realize that was going to apply to taking in someone their own age.

I can hardly wait for what Matt has planned. The one thing I'm sure of is a rousing and exciting game of Clue! I must say that I have never played such a competitive and enlightening game of Clue until I played it with the Parkers. None of the three of us are good liars, first of all. Then, I feel like I'm in middle of a marriage quarrel when they start accusing of each other of holding back information and lying. It's all in good fun, of course, and is sure to be a great time.

The excitement within me is building just thinking about it. I love to play games, and Christmas time is a great time to do so.

I don't have time right now, but I'll have to write sometime about the competitiveness of playing games at Christmas time in my family. One whole blog entry needs to be devoted to playing games with Nanny. I may need a box of Kleenex by me when I do that though. Great memories, but I also get sad thinking about how much I miss playing with her.
