Christmas Eve already

Pixlr_20181224135947167The first week back dragged and flew by all at the same time. Jetlag was annoying but then again it's the same story every time more or less. Either way I made it through the week and was able to finish up work ok with a nice 4 day weekend ahead of me. Friday, 21st, we also had our work Christmas party which was a lot of fun. 

The weekend was nice and low key. Saturday we went to see the new Transformers movie "Bumblebee". Not normally into that franchise at all but I really enjoyed the movie. Would definitely recommend it. In the evening I watched the original Mary Poppins movie in anticipation of going to see "Mary Poppy Returns" on Sunday. Of course it is not the original but I'd recommend it nonetheless. I think they did a good job with the sequel and I will definitely watch it again when it comes out on streaming/Blu-Ray. 

And now it's already Monday and Christmas Eve. Mike had to work so I took advantage of the extra time to take care of a few things. Wrapped the gifts and ordered a few remaining digital gift cards and whatnot. Also finished my unpacking from Austria, putting everything away. I was going to get some mail done - I am so behind on my letters - but I don't think that will actually happen. One of these days I'll catch up with my mail. Maybe next weekend. 

Tonight we're heading to Outback for dinner and tomorrow we have another low key day planned. Gifts in the morning with Mike's sister, niece and nephew, movies afterwards and then just relaxing at home, catching up on recorded TV shows. We bought some yummy food at Caraluzzi's yesterday (shrimp cocktail, broccoli & ranch dip, bread & brie as well as some other cheeses and crackers) so will be able to have a nice feast relaxing, drinking wine and having a low key relaxed Christmas Day. 

Wednesday I am working from home so that will be nice and then just Thursday and Friday before it's the weekend again. :) I have a 1/2 day on the 31st which is also nice. Wish every week could be a short work week. :) 

Letter/Mail Update: Received a letter from/owe a reply to: Lotte/Denmark, Kimber/Canada, Celia/MA, Nina/WA, Carmen/Malta and Tiffany/OK.
