Last night the temperature in my house crept up to 79 degrees, so I turned the thermostat down and it was only 71 degrees when I awoke this morning. That may not seem cold to you, but it is to me! It made it hard to get out of bed, as well as did the announcements on the radio of school closings. Guys, it's RAINING OUT. Seriously. I guess some people are pretending that the rain is freezing into ice, but Sam Clover said that all the roads in to Philly are fine. Pansies! But that made it even HARDER to get out of bed, to hear all these kids getting to sleep in!

I made it, somehow.

I used to feed the cat canned food, but it was too much work and then he EXPECTS things of me, so I quit. I just leave dry food out 24/7. But I ran out about a week ago, and haven't gotten to the grocery store, so I've been feeding him canned food twice a day. Even though this is perfectly acceptable, and even though Henry's eating, he still apparently thinks that he's starving to death and keeps attacking my ankles hardcore. I have to remember to give his claws a trim tonight.

Oh and also I finally decorated my tree last night! Hooray! Christmas is NOT over, not in my house, baby! The tree does look a little silly, though, with the bottom third naked. Henry still managed to get a few ornaments off the tree. And remember how I was talking about my mom's tin icicles? Well I DO have a tube of them! They look so pretty. And it turns out that with my little tree, I only had to use a handful of balls. All my other ornaments were original and interesting; I had forgotten how many I have that were my ornaments on my parents' tree.

I stayed up til one last night making cookie dough. I love baking in the middle of the night! My only concern is that my hand beater is too noisy; but I could hear my downstairs neighbors' tv on until after I went to bed, so I'm sure it was fine. Man, I'm terrified of my downstairs neighbor. I have to drop off a bottle of wine tonight. I dearly hope she's not home when I do.

I want to be home and getting ready for this weekend! Man, and a whole 'nother hour until LUNCH! I'll never make it.
