let it snow!

Well, the first official snow of the season is upon us. Jake’s all excited about playing in the snow. Lucky for me, my dad watched him while I worked today, so he got to go out and play in the snow with Jake. Surprisingly, they were out for quite a while.

On a sort-of related note, the “by Angela” stamp I bought for my Christmas cards came on Saturday, so I got all of my cards ready and they are being mailed this week. Seeing that I’m too lazy to go to the post office, I’m putting a few in our mailbox each day this week so they’ll all be mailed by Friday. Friday, incidentally being “gift wrapping” day. Jake will be at preschool in the a.m., so Brian and I will get his gifts wrapped while he’s gone (we’re both off on Friday). After he comes home, he’ll have to entertain himself upstairs while we wrap the rest. I guess we’ll have to decorate the house a bit between Friday and Saturday as well. We also need to get our tree on Saturday. The place we buy our trees is only open on Saturdays and Sundays, hence the wait.

And, I’ve been baking dog treats like a mad woman since the weekend. Three recipes down, two to go. I still have my human treats to make. All of that should be wrapped up by the weekend. Busy week–not only here but at work as well. It seems like I’m always ridiculously busy at work around Christmas. You’d think I could catch a break somewhere. The main problem is that I’m doing some testing for a project I reviewed, and the testing takes four days. So, pretty much everything else is getting pushed back until I’m done, which will likely make my next few weeks incredibly busy. Oh well, at least it makes the day go fast. I don’t mind having a lot of work to do, I just hate getting interrupted every few minutes when I’m trying to do it.
