Monday Morning Open Thread

What’s up?

I did it! I was rundown with a cold, but I managed to send out all holiday cards and package gifts to ship to family and friends this morning. Whew!

I can let down my hair and sip some wine — which I did, too! 🙂

And yet, one more reason Shonda Rhimes is a bad ass. Her speech accepting the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award is available in its entirety at BuzzFeed. Make sure that the tissues are nearby!

What else is in the news? What’s up with you?

    I finished my Christmas cards too! Like a boss! I didn’t get to doing cards last year because I was just so exhausted by the end of the year. I missed doing them; it’s a pleasant ritual for me. So I feel really good for doing it this year!

    I’m still waiting for my cards to arrive. We ordered through a fundraiser at H’s school and when I called on Friday, the customer service agent informed me that technically they were within their delivery window. I ordered them on 11/21. Grrr…

      That’s not a delivery window – that’s a delivery barn-door.

    I am annoyed with myself. I shopped early for most people and ordered our xmas cards in early November. The gifts I need to mail are sitting, unwrapped, in my bedroom. I need to wrap, box, and mail those. And the cards sat in the box until Thanksgiving weekend, when DH and I put cards in envelopes. And now they have sat while I still haven’t bought stamps or printed out the address labels. I so wanted to have them out right after thanksgiving, but now I don’t know when I’ll have time to do those two things. Maybe Thursday. One of these years I’ll be all the way organized and not just halfway.
