Tired Of Playing The Game Ain't It A Crying Shame I'm So Tired
Things have been (relatively) quiet the past couple of weeks - at least the frenetic level of activity has been dialed down to a simmer, as opposed to a full rolling boil.
We're settling in to the new office, and most of the finishing projects have been completed. Spent 10 hours last Saturday wrapping up several of the remaining large projects: putting up drapes in the conference room, painting some kitchen cabinets, a bit of touch-up painting, leaving only one moderate-sized project to complete, plus some little things I hope to check-off this weekend - just in time for our annual Holiday Open House, which of course, I have to do all the shopping for. On the plus side, the other two people in the office are going to do most of the prep work itself, so I should be able to just sit back and enjoy most of the proceedings.
Have also been working on a few "beautification" projects at the theatre: carpeting our stairwell landings, stripping out and replacing some vinyl tiling in our entryway, and am about to experiment with stripping and refinishing some of the steps themselves. That's going to be a piece-meal project and will probably take me several months to complete, assuming I don't just chuck the whole idea because it turns out to be more hassle than it's worth. But, we'll see.
Otherwise, it's a slow creep-up to Christmas. Assuming we don't get snowed in again this year, which according to the usual sources may be a distinct possibility (can you say repeat of Snowpocalypse 2008? I knew you could), I'll head south on Christmas Eve and try to do the Longview-Kelso/Portland loop over the long weekend, and then MAYBE find some time after the New Year to take a little vacation - even just a few days out-of-town would be nice, because lately it seems that even when I get an extended weekend, such as last, I end up spending half my time working on some project or other.
Time for a little "me time".
