Haven't seen Elementary yet, but I've heard it's pretty good.

This will probably be my last post here for 2013. Working to SFO and JFK today. Home tomorrow night. Should be able to have dinner and bubblies with J.C. to celebrate the New Year, if I can stay awake that late!

Have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve and all the best in 2014!

If you didn't like the first Hobbit, you might not like part two. Although, I will say that Smaug looked absolutely fantastic. That's the best looking dragon I've ever seen. very well done.

Speaking of Sherlock Holmes, ditto, I can't wait ! I was hooked from the first episode. Watson coming back from Afghanistan. Holmes needing a room mate because rents in London are outrageous. Watson blogging for therapy. Holmes and the multiple smoking patches. These guys have great chemistry.

Have you seen Elementary ? that's the US version of Sherlock Holmes. It's not bad.

I'm with you Angel, Both DH and I are up this year from snacking and stress. But, we are both back to exercising and eating more veggies with our chips. Must start somewhere.

Alicia, I can't wait for Sherlock 3. Hesitate for Hobbit 2 as didn't care for first. Would you recommend it?

All, please check out our holiday podcast, it's a hoot in many spots. The shownotes page gives the segment times so you can scrub right to the bits that sound good to you.

So...I'm back at this after a month of ups and downs (mostly downs) with the whole eating right.workout thing. I was off work a week for hubby's surgery. All we did was set around the house and I snacked a lot. emoticon I'm thinking we really need to plan for stuff to do once we both retire! I don't plan to spend my retirement setting around watching TV!

It's good to be back into a sane routine.

I haven't seen the movie, but I think it's funny that both Sherlock and Watson are in it! This is why I've had to wait so long for the third season of Sherlock!

Merry Christmas from Jaimaica, Queens, NY! emoticon

I saw the Hobbit Desolation of Smaug last weekend. It's better than the first movie, but still longer than it needs to be. If you enjoyed LOTRs, you'll enjoy the Hobbit. Smaug was fantastic. A dragon never looked or sounded as good. Mind you, it takes about 90 minutes before you even get to see Smaug. Which is the problem with the movie. They shouldn't have made three movies out of one small book. One would have been plenty. Two would have been reasonable. three ? greedy if you ask me.

Went to the El Capitan in Hollywood to see Frozen on Saturday. Loved it! So glad we saw it before the Frozen/holiday version of World of Color at California Adventure last night. Wonderful!

Boise tonight. Washington-Dulles tomorrow. Have a great week!

Tree was so much bigger than past years, we ran out of lights. Of course we couldn't find the same ones in the stores and the ones we bought had the same kind of bulb, but different color, so they're going back. Had to order more lights online. What was I thinking? LOL

Haven't even started shopping yet! And today I'm off to Pittsburgh where the high tomorrow is expected to be a balmy 29 degrees!

I went black Friday shopping for the second year in a row and had a great time. Found great deals but didn't really need any of it. The prices were just too good to pass up, lol.

House is decorated, have two parties under my belt and just a few more gifts to buy. This is one of my favorite times of year : )

It used to be that flying on the holidays was very light. Now people snap up cheap airfares, so the holidays are full like every other day.

I bid to get the weekend before Christmas off and was able to trade my 4-day trip into 2 2-day trips, so it all worked out. We'll have my family down to celebrate over the weekend. J.C. will drive out to Phoenix to see family on the 24th. And I get home in the afternoon on the 25th, so J.C. will drive home on Christmas and we'll have dinner together before I leave again on the 26th.

Just got our tree last night. I got a little crazy at the tree lot! We had to move all the furniture around and had to stuff the tree through the front door. Oops!

Hey Alicia, I was going to buy a tree the Friday after Thanksgiving, but it poured down rain that day. With the hardwood floors in the livingroom, we decided to wait until we get some kind of tray or cover to put under a tree. Meanwhile, we are taking a bunch of short trips all month, and so most likely will have to just enjoy Knotts Merry Farm for decorations this year. Hope you have fun and your passengers aren't grinches. I flew one Christmas day and it was dead quiet at SeaTac. Nothing open, few people, ghostly. Good news it did make a good environment for reading!

It's going to be a quick Christmas season for us this year!

We had two days of Thanksgiving and then we were too tired to get a Christmas tree. So this weekend is tree and decorating. Then we are going to celebrate the weekend before Christmas because I'm working the 24th & 25th. Haven't even started shopping yet. I was really disappointed in the Black Friday/Cyber Monday specials. Nothing I wanted was on sale!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday !
