Some of it has been because I haven't really been in the mood to write, but most of it is that I'm so busy trying to get other things done, that I don't want to sit down for the 10 minutes it takes to write an entry. Plus, if I write an entry, I can't use the cool 'edit last entry' on sema to get to my todo list. Most of the reason I've been so busy is because my mom showed me this link: Flylady.net, which is about taking baby steps to get your house (and life) in order in 15 minute chunks. I've had a shiny sink for two weeks now, and it's amazing how that motivates you. My garage is also filling up with all the clutter that I don't need anymore, in preparation for the Cancer Federation pickup on Jan 2nd; they're going to have a lot to cart away, I'll tell you what.
I've even been working on all my holiday stuff, including gifts for the coworkers: homemade hot chocolate mix with homemade dipped spoons. I haven't baked cookies, but that's okay; maybe I'll do that another night this week. I doubt it, though, as I still need to write my christmas letter and send out the christmas cards, and that's more important to me than cookies. While I'm on the christmas card theme, thank you to vill, ntnrmlgirl, and ladyfirebird for their holiday wishes. I promise you'll get something in the mail yourself, as I've beaten Outlook into submission.
On a totally unrelated note, I amazed myself (and probably not in a good way) by recording and actually watching the Nancy Drew movie on abc. What's really amazing is that I watched Nancy before I watched Alias. Yeek, what have I turned into?
And now I'm off to declutter the master bathroom for 15 min before letting the dog-who-is-being-really-annoying out of his crate so we can make hot chocolate mix.
 Making chocolate spoons is not as easy as one thinks. Okay, it is, if you don't want to be fancy and try and add raspberry liquor flavoring. I tried, and three bags of chocolate chips died to make my batch of ~30 chocolate covered spoons. Only one bag made it to chocolate nirvana to be reincarnated as spoon covering; the rest all seized up and died a horrid death. At least my garbage didn't smell bad.
