Thanksgiving is this week, which causes insanity everywhere. People who think they can “miss” the crowd cause another crowd and work has been crazy busy.
At work, we have a television that has to play Christmas films right now. We have a small collection of films to play, which is a huge plus seeing as how I am going to go insane by having to listen/watch the same films over and over again. Some of the films I don’t mind having to listen to over and over again, but there are others where it’s like: if I have to listen to this one more time, I will break the disc.
I have watched Arthur Christmas at least 20 times in the last week and Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown! / It’s Christmas Time Again, Charlie Brown at least 15 times (it’s on a disc that’ll play the first film, roll credits, and then play the second). The Flinstone’s Christmas Carol movie and the Yogi Bear Christmas special has been played at least 8 times while How the Grinch Stole Christmas has been played an unknown amount of times (I like The Grinch) and The Miser Brothers’ Christmas has played at least 4 or 5 times.
At least I haven’t had to suffer through It’s a Wonderful Life nor A Christmas Story. I am hoping so much that I don’t have to deal with that stuff.
We’ve been trying to get some stuff done around the house. Jamie’s got plans to re-tile the blue-room floor since the cats destroyed the last floor-job we had done. The craft room looks a lot better than it had and I’ve pretty much gotten most of the yarn fixed up. I still have about 4 totes full, but one tote is nothing but finished pieces.
And because we’ve got some nasty weather (rain, rain, sleet-hail-snow, rain), the dogs have decided they do not want to go outside. Izzy especially does not want to go outside and has been hopping around the house like a goober in defiance. They don’t even want to run up and down the basement steps.
