My Feet Hurt

Today we mostly finished with the move -- all the big stuff came out and all the books (books and books and books and books), loaded them onto the U-Haul, and got them to mom's place and packed into the shed. My foot started hurting again (I have a weird pain in the middle of the ball of my foot, which hurts largely when I walk or bend my toes back and forth), then it nearly got run over by the dolly (at least hit by a loaded one, which felt the same); but on the whole, no major injuries.

Christmas was nice. It was a relaxed, pleasant day, capped by what I think may be the best of the fluffy Doctor Who Christmas specials -- a fun, chipper romp with a few tears, several good laughs, a terrific new companion (albeit a mystery one), and just enough reference to the Ponds. Hopefully, there will be no more. Also, seeing the Doctor's face back in the opening credits? AWESOME. I was filled with glee. Am watching it again right now.

The chocolate gingerbread cookies came out amazingly delicious, and the sugar cookies aren't bad, although only a few of them got decorated, since I didn't have enough powdered sugar. Dinner was awesome, making up for the few failings of Thanksgiving.

Because we've been so busy, haven't had a chance to do much of anything, like see some movies or simple things, like laundry and housecleaning. The place is a wreck, but then, so am I.

I need friends in the UK, so they can send me letters this year. :)

I took Monday off, so I don't have to get back to work and reality until Wednesday. So far, my new place as lead worker is dandy -- I just hope the actual promotion (and money) is forthcoming here soon.
