Thanksgiving Weekend, etc.

Lazy weekend, and it felt weird . . . We had our favorite pizza (or pizzas, two of them) for Thanksgiving. When we got to the restaurant on Wednesday night they had forgotten one of them, so they gave us the second for free (nice way to save $25)! The weather for Thanksgiving, before and after, was absolutely stunning sunshine, so we took rides on Wednesday, Thursday and yesterday.

The stuffed nose of a cold has been sniffing around, so to speak, so I've been taking it pretty easy. But I have this odd, nagging feeling all the time that there's something important I should be doing. I'm so used to being under pressure and having stacks of stuff to do, I can't seem to let myself be okay with just blogging or surfing or whatever.

I now have in my head the outline of a novel I'm going to write, and I also worked this weekend to get that outline on paper. Too bad I didn't come up with it in time for NaNo (it's a little late now), but the idea actually came clearly to me during my massage last week. Speaking of massage, my shoulder is really starting to respond. I'm excited to have almost the full range of motion back.

Tonight's my task force meeting, even though today isn't technically a work day. The good news is, I only work two days this week.

On the tennis front, Roger *did* win the Masters, so all's right with the world, even though he managed to let down his guard and allow Sampras to take one of the three exhibition matches they played last week in Asia. So now we'll watch Davis Cup live here in Portland this weekend, and then tennis takes a rest until Australia in late January. Two years ago the plan was to go to the 2008 Australian Open, but that's a cost-prohibitive trip. It will now have to wait until at least 2009 or 2010, and something drastic will have to happen to be able to afford it.

I hope your shoulder continues to improve. There is nothing worse than trying to work when you are limited in what you can do and are in pain.

Good luck with your novel.

Yeah, I just need to work on the stupid shoulder. I've been terrible about taking care of the physical side of myself this year. But it's much better; thanks for your comment!
