Just stalling until I *have* to get back to my paper.
It's not terribly uninteresting, but tedious. Surprisingly I had a lot of trouble with the part which asked for a personal experience. I still had to put in references for the concepts, so it took longer than I thought.
Sorry you're struggling, Becky. I was never that close to any of my grandparents, but I would imagine it's a lot like losing a parent if you were really close. My sister-in-law struggled for years after her grandparent died, and several of my cousins are still mourning the loss of my grandma, five years later. She wasn't a believer, so my mom wasn't as close as her sisters were; they took it really hard. Hope you're able to reflect on the good memories. (((hugs)))
Listening to the soundtrack of (new) Season 5 for background music. Most of it's nice and quick, which keeps me awake while writing. To get in the holiday mood, I've been alternating that with The Nutcracker. The libraries have great digital music options...I think I've mentioned it before. I've downloaded dozens and dozens of classical favorites through Freegal.
Okay, back to my paper. This is my last night to write it before another night at work, unless our census is down and I get standby again. I should check the online schedule and see if people are getting cut tonight; that would let me know the possibility.
In other news, we finally got a Costco membership. We browsed the aisles and realized it would be a great option for us.
Okay, okay, going, going...
