Was feeling unmotivated to do much of anything. Flipped on the TV to a swamp scene. A little green thing dispensing wisdom. Spent the next hour and a half doing little more. Had to watch The Empire Strikes Back. One of my top 5 movies.
Did eventually peel myself off the couch. Intend to go to the gym hereafter. Eventually. It's open 'til midnight. I'm in no hurry, really. Wondering why not, though. I've eaten food, should fuel me through any workout. Kind of doubt tonight's will be strenuous. Though, you never know until you get there. Still, not feeling too much of it. Whatever it is.
Feel the pinch of time. Three weeks. Lots of people to see. Or that I should see. Not one for goodbyes, really. Did Thanksgiving with one of my circles. Then spent a good portion of the weekend with them. Annual Christkindlmarkt trip to Chicago. 4.4 miles walking, says pedometer. Gluhwein and Magenbrodt. Good stuff. Family style dinner at Bucca di Beppo's. Lots of kitsch on wall. Not as many bad mafia jokes as before. End of an era. I'm leaving. So are another couple of people who were there. I'm sure the tradition will continue, mainstays remain. But I won't be there. Sad.
Survived long weekend only up a bit. Not bad for holiday start. Hope to stay on par through end of year. Not spend first part of next reclaiming ground already gained. Would be nice.
