Outlander is back - low key weekend

OutlanderAnd somehow it is November. I honestly don't know where the year has gone. The other day when we walked into Starbucks everything was red and all the Christmas stuff was out. Transformed overnight pretty much. It used to be that Christmas stuff didn't really start until after Thanksgiving but nowadays it seems to be November 1st more or less. I don't know. Maybe I am being a Grinch. Haha. I am just not ready for it. 

I also feel like this remaining part of the year will be super busy. We were just in San Diego and in just 2 1/2 weeks we are off to the Azores for 8 days. We leave the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and don't get back until the Thursday after. And less than a week after that I am off to Austria. I'll be there for a week. I am mostly working though while I am there but it will still be nice to be there and see my parents and some friends. We'll see how it all works out. Just so much going on in such a short time period.

I think by the time Christmas and New Year's actually rolls around I'll be very happy to just relax and not do anything. Work is in the less busy season now but I have still been busy with various projects. I am also mentoring someone new. We're in week 5 or 6 now I think. She works in our Houston office so it's been a remote mentoring situation which can make things a bit more tricky and challenging. But I guess one day at a time, that's pretty much what I have been telling myself.

This past weekend was relatively low key. On Saturday we went to the movies to see "Bohemian Rhapsody", the Queen biopic. I really enjoyed the movie and would definitely recommend it. Afterwards we had lunch and in the evening I just relaxed. Sunday morning I watched the first episode of Outlander season 4. It's back. Yay. :) I really enjoyed it and thought they did a good job. Did they change some stuff? Yes. But it didn't bother me all that stuff. I guess I am generally pretty laid back when it comes to that but I always enjoy reading all the discussions and fierce opinions on the various message boards. Always entertains me reading all of that after an episode airs. Definitely shows that you just can't make everyone happy. Right? 

Well, anyway, another Monday and I better get ready for work. Let's see what this week brings? Tomorrow I have a training course I need to attend, at least that one is in house so no additional travel involved. And on Thursday I have my appointment for my yearly physical/Dr. appointment.
