it's midnight and i'm still up. i've been organizing christmas cards and gifts all day plus, i'm starting to feel the fatigue of the routine. paradoxically, weekends is when i work more. the house is a silent sanctuary during week days, with the only sound of my keyboard, so it needs low maintenance. it's on weekends that it gets mad, and even if we're going places, there's still a lot to do.
tlking of which, we decided we deserve a special treat for christmas. we endured too much in terms of family problems this year. after all we went through, we came to the conclusion that no relative, not even and mainly the closer ones like parents, deserves our company this season, so we better go away for a while. we spent all day looking at catalogues and getting excited about destinations. we like a few options and i hope they get concrete by tomorrow. al is leaving for moscow by the way, the second business trip of the month, and he's feeling quite thrilled since it's his firt time in russia. yipie!
in the meanwhile, i've been tinking and thinking about the style of this blog. i still don't know which themes i'll develop, since my interests are too varied and i don't want to focus on a few things only. at the same time, i don't want to be too vague and least but not last my aim is to keep you friends out there updated about my life. i don't know. one thing is sure, though: i'll keep it simple, constantly trying to embrace the mantra of 'imperfection is creative perfection'. and we'll see where i end up. try to subscribe, you guys out there, rather than adding my page among your favorites. being in your favorites is nice too, but readers are the best motivation after all!
