Well, it's been a couple days, so a quick update for y'all.

1.) Sara leaves for Germany on the 6th. All good thoughts and prayers in her direction please. To say I'm nervous about seeing my wife off for a week and a half would be an understatement. I haven't slept alone since last December, and I'm sure I'm not going to enjoy it.

2.) No word yet on my MPA application, but seeing as my boss still hasn't done my recomendation, I'm not holding my breath yet. I am, however, going to hit him with something hard until he fills it out.

3.) Had the police at the theater the other night. An employee walked out in the middle of his shift, leaving a drawer that was 70 dollars short. Had to fill out forms and give statements, etc. Not fun.

4.) I need to shop for Christmas. Please, oh wonderful F-list of mine, do not let me procrastinate. I've shopped before on the day before Christmas, it's not fun. Don't let me forget to shop.

5.) Sunday I go off to Plymouth for the Grafton County Republican caucus, where I may be elected to serve on the State Committee. I'm really hoping I get elected.

I think that's about it for now. Until next time...

Birthday!

Hey all!

Yes, it's my birthday. Thanks to all those who sent me good wishes today. I got some really nice things. My wife gave me the orginal Capitol Steps: Live at the Shoreham album, with all the great classics, like Hark! When Gerald Ford Was King, and Immense Expense is Mainly In Defense. Also got some new shirts, and new pair of pants, sorely needed for work. My 'rents got me a new trench coat, which makes me happy. My sister gave me a singing Snoopy that sings Snoopy vs. the Red Baron. My wife is ready to kill my sister (in a good way...she's more or less just plotting revenge by threatening to give her future children really noisy toys).

The theater has been BE-SERK. We did over 40g's in business over the Thanksgiving weekend. We had our best day of the year on Black Friday, when we did 1957 people, blowing away our previous high of 1811, set back in June. We've had some personel issues too, but I think those are about to resolve themselves.

Today, my first day off since before the Holiday, I had to get myself out of bed at 7:30 to get my car inspected at 8. Pain in the neck, but at least it passed, so that's at least some consolation. Put up Chirstmas lights on the outside of the house. Annoyed Sara when she discovered that I'd crawled out on the porch roof to hang lights while at home by myself.
Put up our tree and did some general decorating today. Our tree is gorgous. Pictures to come as soon as I get new batteries for the digital camera.

My application for the Norwich University MPA program goes out in the mail tomorrow, so wish me luck.

Our house is going to resemble a Holiday Inn this month, with several houseguests in the coming weeks. "Welcome to Bernie and Sara's Bed and Breakfast. Complimentary wake up call?"

Later folks!

Does it make me a complete sap that when I was wrapping Christmas presents, (Sara's to be exact) I got to write "To: My wife. From: Her Husband." and it made me giggle like a little school girl and want to dance a little jig? (Be glad I didn't, my dancing is not pretty)

Anywhoo...wedding in FOUR days. There's still quite a bit to be done, but it's all little stuff. And there's Christmas too. I noticed a pattern about myself this evening. I'm usually pretty good about presents, but cards? Usualy, it's like two days before Christmas, and my sister says, something like "Do you want to sign the card for Grandma for both of us?" and I'm like "Oh! Cards! Right!" and I run off to Hallmark to get cards for mum, dad, and baby sis. Well tonight was that night for me, and tomorrow, I'm off to Hallmark for cards.

Most of my wrapping is done, just a few more things to clear up, and cards to sign, and Christmas will be done. Wedding stuff? Gotta pay the balance on the DJ, the Hall, and pay for a couple other minor things. Sara's got some scurrying to do, she needs fake flowers for her throwing bouquet, more thank you cards, and she needs to drop off the cake topper at the baker...among other assorted things. I'll be an honest man and admit that I didn't quite follow the whole list she reeled off at me, I just got the highlights.

I'm going to try to post one more time before the wedding. That's it for now!

kadath's Present )

It has only just now occured to me that as I am moving, I'm packing up this computer this weekend and it will be unacessable to me until after January 1. Well, actually, it hasn't just occured to me, I've known it for a week. What *hadn't* occured to me is that I need to post up the Christmas presents people asked me for before I pack up this machine, or you won't get them until January.

Ergo, it's early Christmas. Today's Christmas giving features [livejournal.com profile] dancinginmagic's present, and [livejournal.com profile] kadath's presents. [livejournal.com profile] kelleypen, Sara is still polishing your present, and we'll be posting it on her LJ, since she'll still have her laptop into the early part of next week.

It's been a while since I've updated about anything besides my new website and NaNoWriMo...oh, there was that post about HP questions, and all of them have since been answered.

Life goes on, I suppose. I'm still subbing. Day in, day out, I have no idea where, who, or what subject I'll be. Monday, I taught sixth grade math. I made a mistake while subtracting, and I'm fairly sure there were 25 sixth graders laughing at me behind my back. Okay, so they weren't doing out loud, but still. Math was never my strong suit, and I was pretty much ad libbing in a subject I never cared for. Still, I was beet red.

Today I was a computer teacher. That was easy, I sat around while the kids did their computer things, and worked on NaNo. Tomorrow, I'm giving a history test. Friday? Who the hell knows?

My kingdom for the slightest peice of permanance. I NEED A JOB!

There's that Christmas wish meme going around, and I'm probably going to do it eventually, but number one, numero uno Christmas list? A HISTORY TEACHING POSITION.

And of course, the whole time change thing is throwing me off, although it's probably in a good way. I've discovered through the years that I'm a very sunshine oreiented person. If it's up, I'm up. When it's not up, I feel like sleeping. It means I find it very easy to get up in the morning, but I'm finding it really difficult to stay up much past 10 these days. Not that I should be anyway, but I'm really starting to feel tired much earlier in the day. Like now. It's six thirty. I could go to bed now.

On the plus side, the subbing thing gives me lots of time to Novelize for NaNo. And also I'm reading an incredibly facsinating book on the construction of the Panama Canal. The Path Between the Seas, by David McCullough. HIGHLY reccomended. I want to go see the Culbera Cut (Gailliard Cut) now. Unfortunetly, Panama vacations are really expensive. Trust me, I looked.

There are 50 some odd days until wedded bliss. Crunch time! With a little bit of luck, it won't fall apart, and we'll both still love each other when it's over. Okay...*WE'LL* still love each other. The chances of our families getting through this without killing each other is getting smaller...can't wait to get to the Bahamas the Monday after Christmas.

Oh, what the heck, I'll do the Christmas meme now. I've got nothing better to do. I just feel like a heel doing it, because I've searched and searched through my f-list, and I couldn't find anything for me to do for anyone else. I feel guilty posting it knowing that I can't find anything to do for someone else.

Christmas Wish Meme )

See, now I feel like a complete stodge because someone will probably find something the can help me with, and I've not been able to find a single thing to do for someone! Somebody go do this meme and list something I can help you with, so I don't feel so bad!
