I found it pretty predictable, and there were parts where I think the creators tried to elicit gasps and/or cheers from the audience that had a rather ho-hum effect. But it's Star Wars, and honestly, I didn't have high expectations. I do have some slightly nitpicky thoughts regarding the ending but don't want to give away any spoilers, so they'll have to fester within.
Christmas week was rather low key for us. We managed to gather with all the "chillen" on Christmas Eve. Each of them brought something to contribute to our meal, so I wasn't solely responsible for the outcome. Our rental house we've been in for less than a month was noticeably unfestive - no tree. And I was reluctant to put up any lights that would require tape or hardware of some kind, so, no lights either.
Still, it was a nice day for us all to be together. Through a certain chain of events, Chaco and Wolfgang had passes to go skiing on Christmas day. And from that chain, Meego ended up with some passes for the season too. I hear the snow in the mountains is good. Sheesh, I haven't been downhill skiing in forever.
Since we celebrated Christmas a day early, I felt one day ahead for the remainder of the week. Thank goodness it's Monday so I can recalibrate.
Speaking of recalibrating, a new year is upon us. Got any resolutions?
Personally, I'm ready to hang up the tutoring biz. It's served me well while we had kids at home and doing their extracurriculars, but I wouldn't say it's a passion. I hung onto it for the past couple of years because we were planning on moving. Right now, I have a grand total of 3 students I meet with regularly, and I'm not scheduling any more. Not gonna lie, as a 50-something job seeker with a big gap in employment, offers aren't exactly piling up. But I feel that a change is past due.
So there's that and other small details including selling a house and finding another.
You? Any resolutions/goals to share?
