*Got my extra sleep-in day accomplished! *Usually I figure any day under 10F degrees or over 90F degrees should just be considered a free pass day to do whatever, but unfortunately we’re in the midst of quite a few under-10 days, and I think I’d feel better if I got moving and did stuff.

Aw, Star Wars… you be the moon, i’ll be the earth (and when we burst, start over), by notcaycepollard “Where were the two of you last night?” Poe asks the next morning, and Rey yawns, passes Finn the plate of rehydrated bread.

Sometimes it’s hard for me to strike a balance between making a day special and making it stressful. My 2017 suggestions for a special and low-stress Christmas Eve day: *Light a candle. (Could be an electric candle!) *Go for a walk outside. (Gotta get yesterday’s mail anyway!) *Eat a special snack. (Now is a great […]

more Star Wars thoughts

Saturday, December 23rd, 2017
