I was feeling like I was putting myself last, so starting today, I'm attempting to be more organized with my time and giving myself scheduled work hours sort of. My "shift"doesn't start until later, and already I've stopped myself several times this morning from doing work related stuff. I actually don't have any students scheduled for today, so it's a good day to start this endeavor, and I think I'll be more efficient now
And it's nice too since it's on the heels of a nice Thanksgiving. Dinner at the sis-in-laws was a good time with about a dozen of us. SIL and her husband really did the lion's share of the cooking and presenting, and it was all very good. I like to think that they enjoy doing it, so as to not feel too guilty about our family taking up half of the seats and eating the most?
Magnum and I took Meego back to school yesterday for the final push of his first semester. We arrived early in the afternoon to a very sparse campus despite the dorms opening up early that morning. So it was nice to be able to walk around and have Meego point out various things. I think we encountered more (very fat) squirrels than people.

but a pretty good representative
Anybody do any Black Friday door bustin'? We did our usual trek to Best Buy, only because it's a short walk from our house and a recreation after all the eating. I'm in it more for the people watching, not shopping
Friday we ventured out to Bass Pro Shop only because Meego needed a jacket. They were doing a healthy business that day. As I walked around, I was thinking that the typical clientele of Bass Pro would probably do quite well in an apocalypse as they seem a pretty self-sufficient bunch. I didn't get much of a vegan vibe either.
It was a successful trip, and on the way home, I picked this up as a Black Friday Haul
Again, I was NOT actually Black Friday shopping. Y'all read me say that I was going to set up a new aquarium after the evil one finally bit it. I just hadn't gotten around to it (see paragraphs 1 & 2), and my inefficiency paid off because I got this lovely 20-gal hexagonal tank at a bargain price.
So far, it has water in it and is pulling electricity. It's a start.
