Today is our last full day of work before our holiday break. We work a half-day tomorrow and then we're done until after New Year's, when this whole 2020 nightmare will be over. Woo hoo!
(Although, as a columnist in The New York Times asked, "What makes you think 2021 will be any better?")
I have no idea what I'm going to do over the holidays, aside from hanging out at home. I may try to take a little trip or two, as I've said before, and I have plenty of reading to do. You should see my magazine stack. It's ridiculous.
Olga's dog walker will also stop coming for much of that time, so I'll have the opportunity to get out and about more with her.
Reading Jennifer's blog yesterday, I was reminded that I completely ignored mentioning our own ugly Christmas sweater day! It was last Friday, and yes, I wore The Sweater. I've gotten six years of use out of that thing, which I think is pretty good for a sweater that cost £9. The lights don't work anymore, and in fact I removed the wiring last year to wash it, but it's still pretty cool. I think I might wear it again today.
