Distracted

We discovered last night that our digital camera was nowhere to be found. It's probably just in the bottom of some box or pile, lost in the shuffle of moving from one apartment to another, but it's still got me rattled. So I'm distracted and I doubt I'll be able to get much work done today, because I'll constantly wish I was at home looking for the darn thing.

We finished cleaning up the old apartment on Sunday. It's sparkling now. We thoroughly vacuumed everything, and painted over the marks on the walls, and scrubbed the entire bathroom and kitchen, and emptied the refrigerator, and shook out all the rugs. All that's left is what was there when we moved in as well as a couple things we didn't want to take with us. Hooray for being done with that.

I discovered on Saturday that for some reason, we are getting Comedy Central and the Food Network on our TV, despite them not being on the channel lineup for the service we pay for. Yay! I also ran coaxial cable the length of the apartment so that we can have TVs in the living room and the bedroom and our computers in the small room next to the bedroom. So far, this is working nicely.

Winter's starting to come on. Last winter was rainy and dreary, with very little snow. If I have to endure the cold and wetness of winter, I at least want some nice big snowdrifts to look out the window at! This is partly why I like upstate New York (where I grew up) more than southern Rhode Island. Even though I always hated shoveling our driveway, and I can't stand cold weather, I prefer snow to rain.

We have a hectic holiday schedule coming up. I'm using up far too much of my vacation time, but I think it's worth it. Family is very important to me, and I already don't get to see them often enough.

On Thanksgiving, we get to have two big family meals -- Sarah's family is vegetarian, so they whip out the tofurkey, and my family is huge so everybody brings a few things to my maternal grandmother's house and we have a giant potluck. I really enjoy getting to see all my (maternal) aunts and uncles and cousins at once; there are about three dozen of us now, and more are on the way.

Then come two family Christmas parties, Christmas day itself, my company Christmas party shortly thereafter, and New Year's. By the time it's 2003, I may very well be dead from exhaustion. :)

I have had the "Astronaut Jones" theme from SNL (sung by Tracy Morgan) running through my head all day. "Rocket / I'm taking a rocket. / I'm packing my suitcase / So look out moon! / A rocket / Into outer space. / Good bye human race, / I'll be there soon."

Must go try and get some work done now. Sigh.
