Sabbatical Report: Thanksgiving
I really should have time to do a real post this week, but I’m lazy. Sabbatical-type lazy. So welcome to Sabbatical Report #2. If you want to know what the fuck I’m talking about here, you may want to read Sabbatical Report 1.
So, I’ve been on sabbatical for half a week so far, and I haven’t done much. Mainly I’m trying to catch up on all my C3V work that I let slack while I was putting in so many hours at work, getting ready for sabbatical. I’m one unit away from being completely caught up on my editing duties.
Thanksgiving was in there too. We decided to forego the turkey this year ... it seems like every year, we all get excited about the mashed potatoes, and the deviled eggs, and the onion casserole, and cranberry sauce, and we eat some turkey out of some weird sense of duty, and then we’re stuck with turkey leftovers for 3 weeks and we’re sick of it the whole time. So, you know: screw the turkey. We’ll just have the other stuff. So we did.
Mainly what I was thankful for this year was sabbatical. That may very well keep me sane. Many of us were thankful for our newest family member. And also for our sister family (who I still need to write a blog about someday). And various and sundry other things.
Other than that, I’ve mostly just hung around the house. It’s been nice to be able to stay up as late as I like, sleep as late as I like. And I sleep pretty late under normal circumstances. So, not a lot of interesting stuff to report, over all.
Next week may be a little more exciting. Or not. Either way, I’ll be enjoying it.
