How I'm spending my winter vacation...
I don't have to go back to the office until January 3rd, which means I am in the middle of an 11-day stretch of not working. Which we all know drives me a little nuts, but I can still be productive. I've done my share of couch-and-channel surfing, but I've also crossed tons of things off my to-do lists. What I've been doing so far:
*Staying up very late means not fighting insomnia, and I love that.
*Sleeping late. Wish I could do it every day.
*Puttering around the house is one of my favorite pasttimes. I have already rearranged my bedroom furniture and hung my Christmas gift to myself on the wall in my bathroom. It is a photo by the very talented Lolly Koon and looks like it has always belonged there.
*Knitting (the scarf I finished for my sister inspired me to make a few more like it).
*Making art. I finally have the time to put all of the ideas I keep in my artist's journal down on paper.
Stay tuned. I'll either go completely batshit crazy and someone will have to talk me out of the corner where I'm rocking back and forth and muttering about deadlines and printer proofs, or I'll return to work on the 3rd with a renewed outlook, the memories of me bad-mooding all over the place in early December completely wiped out.
