Low Key Movie Weekend

Pixlr (3)Already Monday again. I don't even know how that happens. We already made it through our first week back in the US. Got back last week on Sunday. All went pretty smooth with the flight (some annoying fellow passengers but hey that's about normal I guess) and immigration took forever (also nothing unusual I guess) so all in all ok. Then we headed back to work on Monday. And of course our system at work went down for almost the whole day on Monday which didn't help with me needing to catch up. I did manage to mostly get caught up throughout the week. Well, let's see what this week brings? A lot of people are taking days off between now and Christmas so it's a bit of a hectic time. 

The weekend was pretty low key all in all. We went to the movies twice (saw "Knives Out" on Saturday and "the new Jumanji" movie on Sunday) and other than that just went to lunch/brunch and caught up on some recorded TV. Nothing crazy. Saw some friends and were able to drop off some gingerbread/cake and chocolate care packages. We always end up with way too much stuff when we travel to Europe so it's nice to share with everybody when we are back. 

Can't believe we are only a little over a week away from Christmas. I am really not ready. I have sort of figured out most of the gifts now but am waiting for everything to get delivered and then need to wrap. The Europe trip definitely put me behind with a lot of my organizational stuff. I did manage to write my Christmas cards prior to us leaving though so that was good. It's funny too because some people received them within a few days and others have just received them now. The postal system really is wonky at this time of the year. My US packages I only mailed this past Friday (wanted to include some things I bought in Europe) so hopefully all those will make it where they need to go in time as well. 

Missed a storm while we were away which I am not unhappy about. Now tonight there is supposed to be a front moving in and my main concern with that one is that it is supposed to be freezing rain/ice on top of the snow. Ugh. I absolutely hate that. I guess we'll see what tomorrow morning brings when we wake up. I do have the option of working from home if it's really bad but I do try to get to the office if possible. I guess will just need to wait and see what it's actually like tomorrow morning. Ugh.

Letter/Mail Update: Letters went out on Friday to: Lotte/Denmark, Celia/MA and Carmen/Malta. I received a letter from/owe a reply to: Nina/WA.
