Another busy week!
I was away at a work conference for a few days which was exhausting... I hate being marched around on a schedule like that! Told what to do, when to do it, where to sit etc. Plus, the breaks were all about "networking" - otherwise known as making conversation with people you don't know - and the evening meal was the same. Absolutely draining when you recharge your batteries by being alone!
Despite my grumbles it was a useful exercise, I guess.
I got some shopping done for Christmas before the weekend madness (sparked by Black Friday) hit which was good.
I also got baby presents for my friend who is expecting next week which was awesome. We had a (sort of) baby shower/Christmas get together for her on Saturday and had a lot of fun.
My most exciting news is that I'm almost caught up on returning all of November's blog comments! It's been a long process as I've only been doing it when I've had the energy and brain space to properly read and enjoy your posts but it's been good.
Apologies for the binge comments though!
I'm determined to get back on a regular - and sane - schedule soon, lol.
What else... Oh yeah! It was the professor's birthday this week. We went out to dinner and went bowling which is pretty much our birthday default but we love it.
The little dude is finally bowling without using the kiddie aid (basically a ramp you push the bowling ball down) which gives us some pretty amusing results.
Reading took a backseat this week but I finished my audiobook of Throne of Fire and it was so good... I've already started listening to the third and final book.
Still Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory.
I hope to get some festive movies in this week now that we've finally hit December!
