If the Packers don’t win this game…

…I don’t know what I’ll do. It’s not looking so hot for us at this point. I mean, yeah, we’re in the playoffs, but the Bears won, so…

UGH. UGH UGH UGH.

Yes, I get worked up over American football. Sigh.

In other news, I’ve been working on my list of goals for 2013. For the moment, I’ve just written up the list of books I hope to read next year. I won’t post the entire list here because I have a book blog. You can find the post here: Enthralled by the Written Word. As you may have noticed, I have a penchant for lists. Writing lists is one of my favorite things to do. Thus, a reading list as well as various other goal lists.

Also, we have so much snow now. It’s pretty awesome. And it’s going to be SUPER COLD for the next week, so I think the snowmobile trails will be excellent for awhile.

And the Packers FINALLY got a touchdown! Okay I’m happy now. Still losing at this point, though…

Twenty-five Days of Christmas Cheer: December 12th

12/12/12

It’s the last time any of us alive today will see a repetitive date quite like this. Kind of weird, actually. Here in Wisconsin (and wherever there are Packers fans, I suppose!), it’s being celebrated as Aaron Rodgers Day, in honor of the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. I absolutely love it! I’m wearing my jersey and a number of other Packers accessories.

The temperature outside is slowly but steadily climbing above freezing. I’m not happy about this; the snow will melt and then there is supposed to be rain. Not fun. At all. The snow is so beautiful. Hopefully it will snow again before Christmas.

Not much to speak of on the Christmas front today. If you actually visit my blog, you’ll notice that I have a new theme, though. It’s not really anything to do with the true meaning of Christmas, but it is festive! I like festive. Other than that, I don’t have much to report. Things have been slow here. Well, for me. Nate works as usual.

Today I intend to work on my Christmas apron, go to the library, and maybe go to a resale shop and look for some old Christmas sweaters. And maybe actually bake those gingerbread men I’ve been thinking about for a week now…
