Almost New Year's + Meet Baby Sherlock

Pixlr (5)Almost New Year's already. Christmas was nice and low key. Christmas Eve we had dinner at Outback and then went over to our friend John and Jana's house for dessert and drinks. Then on Christmas Day we opened our gifts with Mike's sister, niece and nephew and later went to the movies to see "The Favourite". Mike got me an Amazon Echo so I'll need to play with that and get that set up. I got him a pizza, beer and history walking tour in NYC which should be fun. Among other smaller gifts and odds and ends we exchanged. Came back home after that and watched a bunch of recorded TV shows. Slowly catching up. 

Worked Wed (26th) to Fr (28th). Nice to have a short work week. It was weird at work because a lot of people had taken the week off and/or were working from home so it was pretty quiet. Volume wise anyway. Work wise it was semi busy but not too terrible. Tomorrow (31st) I am working a 1/2 day and am working from home. Let's see how it goes. I have quite a few things I need to take care of/catch up on so I'll try and get all that taken care of. 

Oh and last but not least we have a new family member since yesterday. :) Little baby kitten Sherlock (he's only 8 weeks old, was born on November 2nd) One of my friends at work had a cat who had a litter and now the cats are old enough to leave their mom she is looking for homes for them. My friend Abby also adopted one and as we had played with the idea of a new cat for a while already we decided to give in and just go ahead. 

So far so good. He's absolutely adorable. He has been a bit skittish but has also played a lot already and been fun to have around. The other cats haven't really interacted with him much yet so we'll see how all that goes. So far so good. 

No big plans for New Year's Eve tomorrow. We'll probably go out to dinner and then come home and watch some TV and eventually switch to New Year's Rockin Eve.
