Yet still on vacation.
The weird limbo week of the year. Christmas is over. The new year is coming. Kids don’t have school but the new toys have lost some of their newness due to constant exposure. The fridge is full of leftovers.
(in my case the fridge is also full of meat that defrosted over night in chest freezer when Havoc left the lid up after getting some corn dogs. Only the top layer of stuff thawed, the bottom 2 racks are still solid but I need to find something to do with 14 chicken breasts in the next 2-3 days, plus make more ragu with the thawed short ribs and I guess we are having strip steak for dinner tomorrow)
Everyone is sort of waiting around for things to pick back up & normal life to start again.
I’m using the time to go through my photos this year (over 5000!) and get rid of the badly done ones, the blurry shots, the ones duplicated in multiple photos and the ‘shoot the object 15 times until you get the angle you want’ shots. Things I should have been more proactive about deleting when I imported them. That is one of my goals this year – better photo workflow.
I’m also assembling my 2009 365 photo book, which I finally chose a look for 2 weeks ago. And I’m trying to get list together of 10-12 things to photograph monthly for my 2010 project
The other thing I am doing this week is trying to go off of Lunesta, which I have been taking nightly since November 2006. It’s been sporadic lately in it’s effectiveness & I figure why spend $50 a month on something that isn’t working. Last week I went 4 nights in a row without it & got some sleep, not 6-7 solid hours but 6 sporadic hours. I took it for 2 nights & have been 2 more nights now without it. Apart from the terrible anxiety I had last night it’s been going well. I’ve also cut the caffeine in my diet by 75% & am now taking Kava at night, along with chamomile tea. We’ll see how it goes.
What are you up to this last week of 2009?
