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.

I scrounged up most of the ones I found through Amazon, but you never know what Half Price might have hiding on the shelves! I was once there looking at the Doctor Who novels and met a set of little Doctor fans who were very impressed with my t-shirt.

SF people rarely give up their darned books. It's tough to find anything there. Romance you can find a ton....

and cool about the shirt

Yes, OMG, tell me about it (after the weekend of moving a reader and her books). And I was heard to say that no matter how much we whined and moped and moaned, not a one of us ever planned on ever not OWNING books...

exactly. However, after I hit my 40s and my last move I decided that unless I KNEW I was rereading it or it was a series I'm keeping, the books get rehomed after reading

I think about that in theory, but we haven't moved since 1988. Just imagine what's squirreled away in this house...

I cannot IMAGINE what it would be like if we were suddenly evicted...

I can but only because I'm considering moving and I've been taking inventory of all my useless shit
