I'm kind of sleepy so I'm taking the easy way out with a collection of stray thoughts in bullet form as opposed to a coherent, organized post.
• I'm finally figuring out the right way to drive my Honda Civic Hybrid. I've been averaging one extra mile per gallon for the last couple of days. Go me.
• I had the distinction of having an employee who just started on October 15th quit yesterday. I don't think it had anything to do with me, (she got offered what she described as her dream job) but it was still a little disconcerting. And so now I'm hiring again. Great.
• Our trip to Europe is back on for spring. Paris, Amsterdam and London, here we come, baby. I'm excited, but also feeling a little anxious about leaving Seamus behind. I know people go on vacation without their dogs all the time, but I just have this feeling of dread about getting someone to watch him. Also, the airfares are more expensive than I thought they would be. Ok, I might need to work on my enthusiasm.
• My friend Becky has challenged me to run a 10 miler with her in April. I'm a little intimidated by the notion, but I also kind of like the idea of going for it. Running 10 miles would be a pretty big deal for me, though. I'd really have to get to be a faster runner, because the notion of running for two hours straight doesn't really do anything for me. Still, it is good to have a goal. I might go for it.
Ok, I'm now so tired that I'm struggling with the bullet format. I'd say that's a clear sign it is time to go to bed. Bonne nuit. Bonne nuit to you all. (Insert gargoyle here)
