December Lookback

Here's where I am:

Listening to:

TV shows –
Succession: DARK, it's the kind of show you hate to love but it draws you in.
The Queen's Gambit: I'm obsessed with the main character's dresses. Very well done. Beautiful sets, phenomenal acting.
Pride & Prejudice (1995): super 1995. Feels like a soap opera. Dramatic. Overdone.
Disney Sing-Along: Fun to watch with kids.
The Wire: not a favorite of mine.

Movies –
The Night They Saved Christmas: my mom's favorite movie when I was a kid.
When Harry Met Sally: Because we bought pastrami from Katz's Deli. Feels like a good depiction of my relationship with a friend and our constant arguing.
Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey: recommended to me. It's a musical. It's ok. Well done but not a favorite.
Bridget Jones's Diary: After watching Pride & Prejudice, this felt like a logical choice.
The Polar Express: with one of the kids I'm watching.

Christmas gifts and when to ship them.

Anxious about:

a friend. Are we friends; are we not? I've almost decided to just cut my losses, which I've done so many times before. And yet this person always returns to my life. But we don't talk. Except when we do. Oh, complications!

Quarantine Notes:

Now, 3 months out of quarantine:
• It's rough deciding what counts as covid exposure and what doesn't. It's also frustrating going into a store where masks aren't required. Or dealing with family that aren't taking this seriously.
• I've needed lots of downtimes the past month which has resulted in lots of movies and tv shows. Relaxing and doing nothing.
• The people I work for just moved, so I'm getting tons of (what feels like) exercise breaking down their boxes and taking them to the street.
• Started doing yoga and stretching through the Weight Watchers program. The back stretches feel so good.
• Excited to ship Christmas gifts and make cookies for family!
