I am heading on a last minute trip tomorrow to Calgary! I was all set to enjoy almost 2 straight weeks without a trip anywhere, but as I went into work today, I was informed that I was heading to Calgary TOMORROW! I don't mind. Honestly! I've never been there before, but I am certainly NOT looking forward to weather in the 20's and 30's! Brrrrrrrrr! It was snowing there the past few days. Think warm thoughts for me!

Just flew home tonight from Charlotte, NC (where I was for work), and I just knew that our flight home would suck. I could feel it in my bones. The weather was rainy, and the clouds were low - so you could just tell it was not going to be smooth. And I was right! It was a pretty bumpy ascent, but once we broke through all 3 levels of clouds, it actually wasn't too bad - for about half of the way home. Then we started to descend, and it was AWFUL! The flight attendants were trying to act calm while they were going down the aisle, but they were gripping the seat backs with white knuckles. It was one of the few times that I've felt sick to my stomach while we were flying. My heart was racing, and sometimes I think that actually helps me not to get sick. But I made it home. I'll be able to sleep in my own bed for almost 2 straight weeks!! That is amazing!

So I just created a hardcover book using my own photos from iPhoto! Pretty freaking cool, if I do say so myself! And it was so easy! I can't get into details because A) it will be a christmas gift, and B) my friend reads this blog. Suffice it to say that the photos have to do with something we did together - and NO, it's not a sex book. LOL. But I'm just so excited to see the finished product!

Ok, so I ate a lot. A LOT! I ate so much that I literally fell asleep on the sofa at 8pm. I finally went to bed at 9:30 and slept until 6:30am! I was a sleepy man, apparently. That Tryptophan was "tryptophantastic"!! But I'm home in Baltimore, after having shopped with my Mom, and I have a lot of leftovers in the fridge. I think I hear that turkey and stuffing calling me name....

I can't believe that they waited until November 18th to start replacing the windows in the high-rise I live in now! They started on the front of the building, and are working their way from the left side to the right. I've been informed that they'll be replacing the windows in my living room on December 1st (it had better NOT be cold that day!!) - but there's still no word as to when they'll be replacing the windows in my bedroom. I have a bad feeling those will wait until spring. I think it's taking longer than they anticipated (of course!). Apparently the delay resulted from battles with the Baltimore Historical Society. (my building was built in 1965, so it's officially historical!) I just can't wait for it to be done!

Hey, hey, hey! I'm officially off work until next Monday!! WoooHooo! I'm so excited for Thanksgiving tomorrow - you have NO idea! I'm driving to PA to help my Mom cook, and then I'm going to eat my body weight in food! Ok, not really - but i LOVE to eat. And this is one of my favorite days of the year! It's all about being thankful - and I'm thankful for so many things: my job, my family who I love so much, my amazing friends, my health, my home.... I'm a very lucky man.

That was probably a record for shortest time I've spent somewhere for work, and completely finished a store opening! We actually finished last night around 8pm, and only had a few hours of work this morning. We were also able to change our flight to an earlier one - a MUCH earlier flight! (instead of leaving at 7:30pm, we left at 3:15) So, despite sitting through hellacious traffic on the way home, I am actually home 4 hours before I should originally been. Guess who is a VERY happy man?!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE christmastime, and I LOVE decorating for Christmas! I always wait until after Thanksgiving, but images like those above really get me in the Holiday mood! My decorating is very "Retro" themed. I love older decorations, and the larger 1950's lights, and I even have an aluminum tree! I also LOVE the holiday movies and TV specials that play throughout the holiday. My favorite movie is "White Christmas", and my favorite stop-animation special is "The Year Without a Santa Claus". I turn into such a kid this time of the year!
Yeah, if doing laundry and watching Sex & the City re-runs equates a fun day - then I'm having a blast! lol. I'm also cleaning, and getting ready for my work trip tomorrow to Virginia Beach. Thankfully it's only 2 days - and we'll be home tuesday night. Wednesday of this week is the busiest travel day of the year- EVERYONE wants to be home for Thanksgiving. So I am very thankful that I will be working out of my office on wednesday. Of course, I'll want to leave work by 3pm at the latest. Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!!
