I wear my snow boots pretty much 24/7

I think my horoscope for today is telling me to take off a week of work to devote to blogging:

"You are likely aware of your writing abilities, Sarah, but you may not realize just how talented you are. It would be worthwhile for you to consider devoting more time to honing your craft. You can't expect to improve much when your writing time is scattered in between other obligations. You need large blocks of uninterrupted time in order to really produce something of value. Why not give it a try, even if just for a week or so, to see what you are capable of."

I am totally on board with this idea, horoscope! Can you tell my boss for me?

Here are some updates for y'all:

- I got a new laptop at work which is awesomely fast and doesn't make me want to break into a homicidal rage because it takes 12 minutes to open a freaking email. I love you, new work laptop, even though it takes me-literally-10 minutes to get you locked into your docking station!

- I got a new home laptop. And it is beautiful and amazing and makes me want to be a better man. I am literally obsessed with it, you guys. And honestly it will make blogging a whole hell of a lot easier-I just have to be home to do it, and I have not been home very much recently. One more reason to listen to my horoscope.

- One of my best friends in the entire world who happens to work with me, Scott, is leaving to go to another company. I can't really talk about this right now because I am too emotional. He is one of the main reasons I even get up and go to work, and I am not even exaggerating. I will dedicate an entire post to this next week since his last day is next Friday.

- Jace made dinner for my sister and me. Pot roast, fancy mashed potatoes, noodles, broccoli with bacon, salad, wine and beer. Hello best dinner invite ever! It was just a Wednesday night, and I was like, "I'll pick us up some takeout." and he goes, "Why don't you come over? I have a pot roast." And I was like, "Grandma?" This dinner was awesome for several reasons: 1 - I love Jace an inordinate amount, 2 - See aforementioned list of prepared food, 3 - Diane and Jace totally got kind of drunk. I don't know what happened, but at one point Jace got out his Dyson vaccuum cleaner and demonstrated it's amazing cleaning power. Par-tay!! We are out of control here in Cleveland!

- I wrapped Woody's Christmas presents for him. Seriously. The kid hates wrapping presents so I volunteered since wrapping Christmas presents makes me so happy it's embarassing. Interesting sidenote: he needed me to bring my own scissors. What? He doesn't have scissors? What's that about, Woody?

- I turned 29+3. Whatever. I'm completely nonchalant and uncaring about the whole thing. Hold me.

- My friends and family, as usual, were amazing to me on my birthday-buying me presents, giving me cards, going out in crappy weather just to celebrate with me. I know I say this all the time, but I will never stop: I am the luckiest person on the planet because of the people I have in my life. They are as awesome as it gets. Oh and an awesome sidenote: John's kids made me homemade bday cards and made a video singing me "Happy Birthday" which John played for me on Monday. OHMYGOD. It was the cutest thing ever. I almost cried. Do you see what I am dealing with here? Amazing people everywhere I turn!

- I saw previews for "Lost" and peed my pants.

Here are my plans for the next couple weeks:

Be merry.
Catch up on Gossip Girl because I am 14 years old.
Blog...probably while drinking.

Who is this Jace you speak of?? I don't remember you ever mentioning him. :)

Tell Jace I love him. I'm vegetarian and I still love his dinner. And I'm really bummed no one ever told me about broccoli with bacon before I became vegetarian.

I just got a job with a company out here that is based in Cleveland, and instead of "Congrats!" the first thing my cousin said is, "when do you get to go to the main office so we can hang out with Sarah!?!?"

happy belated birthday!

Let Erin know about when to hang out and I'm TOTALLY on the flight out with her.

A side note: My word verification below is 'pubseles.' Yeah, who's 14? Because I'm ALREADY caught up on Gossip Girl.

Ok seriously it's been too long! I am so glad you are taking off work to BLOG! It was such a blast to see see you the past few weeks...I'm glad were back together. Speaking of which Danyell broke up with me over your blog. It's pretty hard around the Holidays but I figure it's nothing sugar in her gas tank wont fix...thanks for the help with that! Off to make make brisket. Just kidding I don't know what that is!

Loved the "Grandma?" comment...

Seriously - awesome post! It obviously must have contained a week's worth of built up awesomeness...

I think I'll do all that except the Gossip Girl part. Really? Gossip Girl?
Maybe I'll try that while drinking, and that will help ease me into it...
