Well, as promised, I am not so great at this whole blog updating thing. I will have no trouble coming up with a new years resolution! At this point, most of my recollection of December is now in bullet point form:
- I finished reading Mindy Kaling's book and loved it. I was hoping
there would be more tidbits from The Office (there was really only one
chapter that dealt with her being on set). The show is one of my
all-time favorites, and I could probably read a whole book just about
that. Mindy Kaling's book was fun, though, and left me wanting to go out
and do something girly and gossip wildly with some girlfriends. I
settled for a mani pedi.
- My office had a holiday party on December 16 at El Gaucho downtown. It
was quite good, and pretty standard as far as holiday parties go.
Because our office is so small, we do a gag gift exchange every year.
Adam and I came home with a gingerbread house kit which we immediately
swore we were going to build and chronicle on our blog. Judging by the
lack of posts since then, I'm guessing you know as well as I that
Christmas has passed and it's not happening. Look for that in the
Jackson 2012 blog update.
- Kirsten Terry came back to the homeland from Michigan on December 17
and I immediately challenged her, Adam and Sean to a game of Catan. In
classic Kirsten style, she built basically only roads and cracked
herself up for most of the game. It was the best and made me realize how
much I've missed her these last four months. For the record, I ended up
winning the game of Catan (thought no one even got close to Kirsten's
- I was very excited for Christmas this year. Not that I haven't been in
the past, but this was excited like 8 year old style. It ended up being
a success and I am well on my way to my goal of making an epic
scrapbook of all Adam and I's adventures from 2011. I started picking
out pictures yesterday afternoon and I'm pretty excited.
- Though Adam will likely mention this in one of his posts, he built me a Magic deck from Christmas, and I can't wait to head down to Cafe Mox
and try it over a sandwich. I wasn't expecting any gifts so it was a
wonderful surprise - especially because I had no idea where he'd found
the time to put it together!
All in all, December has been a good month. I didn't get all the
Christmas-y things done I would have liked (didn't bake a single batch
of cookies) but it was a great holiday. I won't pretend that I will be
on the ball enough to post again before the New Year, so cheers to 2012
and learning how to use this thing more effectively!
