It's beginning to look a lot like pressure..

It's that time of year, again, as you can tell because I'm procrastinating by posting in my LJ.

On the client site, we're valiantly writing materials for a system that isn't built yet. Training is to begin in January. In other organizational news, I need to be writing my mid-year assessment, in which I need to be able to convey strengths and weaknesses. I'm trying to avoid listing "procrastination" as a weakness.

Our lease was up a few weeks ago. As I get busier at work, I'm trying to pretend I don't have to pack and get ready to move again. I'm also trying to pretend that someone else could do the organizational aspect for me - the deciding what to keep, what to donate, what to throw - in a manner I'd like.

The holiday gift-giving occasions are nearly upon us. Many a birthday in the friends and family circle, as well as the end-of-year celebrations of continued life and love. As many of you know, this has always been a time of weakness for me. This year, to help with the 'get N. out of credit debt and into financial sanity' effort, you may all be receiving your very own macaroni art. I hope you appreciate it. :)

I should be thinking of sending out those end of year holiday cards, too, but I don't know if they'll make it out this year. We'll see. :)

If you live in the Houston area, you really do need to trek out to Katy to admire the replica of the Chinese emperor's tomb. The terra cotta figurines are made in the same city in China as the originals. They're 1/3 size, though, which makes them all two feet tall. Pretty fabulous.

B and I are back in dance lessons. I'm trying to remember to wear my brace and not to tense up when being led through the move in tango that caused the original injury. Tango, when led well, feels like flying to me. Magic!

Tonight, we'll be celebrating Diwali at a colleague's. Slowly, I'm learning other cultures than mine own.



Have you read "The Now Habit"?

If you have time for additional reading in your life, you might give it a try. I know I recognize myself in it, and it's got some good advice.
