But only because we spent so much money last night.
One might wonder why there is the sudden upsurge of entries on these chilly December mornings. This being the shortest day of the year, I thought perhaps it might need to be the shortest entry, as well. No such luck. So why the sudden verbosity? Three reasons:
1) It’s pre-holiday. The office is dead. On any given day I’d spend a few minutes wandering and venting to my coworkers. They are few and far between. This is almost as good.
2) This is a primer. I’m due to spend the whole day writing articles for our newsletter. It’s what I’ve been doing for about two weeks now, as odd as that may seem… but with interuptions, and other tasks sewn inbetwixt, well… As a result, it helps to loosen up the typing fingers, grease the ol’ brain, and get that sass out of my system somewhere mildy constructive before I settle down and get serious for the day.
3) I’ve been writing too much about our house lately. And while that may amuse some of you, I’m sure it’s killing my ratings elsewhere. And believe me — they’re on thin ice already.
