* I still have Christmas decorations up. The tree is gone but there are still smatterings of the holiday season randomly around my apartment. Today may have to be the day though.
*I've joined a book club. I'm very excited because I've wanted a book club for a while but had a hard time finding one that worked with my schedule. This particular one was started by a couple of gals who I work with though, so scheduling isn't an issue. The first book we're reading is Waterfall by Lisa Bergren, which is quite a popular book right now, but as I'm reading it, it seems kinda Christian-y. So I looked up the publisher, and sure enough, they publish a lot Christian literature and curriculum. I was kinda pissed at first, but it should make for an opinionated me at the book club meeting.
*The other night I took the boy to Hot Topic so that he could spend his Christmas gift card. As he was browsing the skinny jeans and black hooded sweatshirts, the girl and I stood by the counter looking at the wall of Hello Kitty merchandise. Since it's January, the store was slow and the girl who worked there came up and started talking to me. (Side note: I'm always shocked when ultra hip people speak to me, even if it's their job to do so.) Anyway, this gal had about 15 piercings on her face and ears, including a giant one protruding from her cheek. As a general rule, I don't spend each day feeling old. Basically, I feel like a teenager still who somehow stumbled into adulthood and now has to deal with things like bills and kids. But looking at that girl, I felt ancient because it would never occur to me to pierce my cheek.
*The other day I got a weird, spammy looking email from my old real estate agent in Florida. I didn't actually click the link inside, but ever since then it seems as if other weird spammy email is being generated from my account. So if anyone gets an email from me, be careful about looking at it. I'm not one to put "IMPORTANT" in the subject line. Leave it to the RE agent to find one more way to screw me.
