The time between Christmas and New Year's has always been a favorite of mine, as there's usually less reason to leave the house than normal days (I'm a homebody by nature; my problem is I'm just not left home alone that much – psychiatrist's orders).
- Reload/update software on a new hard drive for my four-year-old iBook G4 after the old hard drive crashed (thankfully, I had everything backed up, which wasn't the case when Megan's crashed a couple of months ago)
- Replace iGTD with the soon-to-be-released Things (I like it a lot better)
- Renew $60 worth of URL domains for sites I hold for various and sundry purposes (not all of which are particularly clear at this moment in time)
- Finish assembling my study from our move six months ago (it's about time)
- Get used to being the owner of three cats (my gift to my four very happy girls; meet Ricky, Lucy, and Ethel)
- Work the bookstore (2009 marks John Calvin's 500th birthday, so we're gearing up; inventory this week)
- Restore our family filing system to some semblance of order (I hate the pressure of keeping track – physically or digitally – of legally binding documents for at least seven years)
Been meaning to
- Redesign our blogs (look for the re-launch around New Year's; big improvements)
- Finish Confessions by Augustine (I like the book a lot, but I'd rather read it when it's quiet, which isn't often around here)
- Read The Shack by William Young (yes, I gave in because so many people asked me what I thought; film at eleven)
- Catch up on Lost (season four is so much better than season three); also enjoying the second season of Dexter
- Write some thank you notes (much to be thankful for; it's also good for my attitude/heart)
More as I have it. I'm too busy enjoying the time off right now.
