7 Quick Takes # 5

There are 12 days left until Christmas and I am not prepared yet which is irritating me to no end. I still have cards to send out and Christmas presents to buy. I'll get it all done like usual but just once, it would be nice to be done already and not have the last minute shopping pressing up on me.
I've had a headache for the last three days. I thought it was the lights at work and I still think that is part of it but last night I went to sleep with a headache and it hurt worse when I woke up which is unusual. Normally some sleep and some food will make them go away but this headache is persisting despite my efforts to knock it out.
A few nights ago, I came home from work and Chris had shaved. I'm not used to not seeing him without facial hair so it was a bit of a shock. Last night though, Nick managed to shock me even more because he had completely shaved and he looks years younger without his beard than he does with one. His girlfriend had something to do with him shaving and all I can say about that is "she's a keeper." ;-)
The new kitty is getting along well with the inhabitants of our house and its motley crew of pets. I have seen her and the dogs curled up together sleeping which never fails to bring a smile to my face. They are so adorable when they do that.
Work is starting to annoy me. I know it's about time for an extended break and my vacation is coming up in just over a month. Every year this happens. People start to really grate my nerves and I realize it's time for me to take a vacation. I don't have grand plans for the time off. Just going to enjoy not having to go go go and do some sleeping, some reading, some relaxing.
With the MegaMillions lottery hovering at 400 million dollars, I almost bought a ticket today but couldn't find a store that sold them before I had to go to work. Somebody will think Friday the 13th is their lucky day if they pick the right set of numbers tonight. I know that person won't be me.
I have a few recipes I want to try out on my next set of days off. I'm still searching for a recipe place online that is really user friendly where I can save recipes I find. My grand ambition of copying them all by hand and putting them in a recipe box that I can keep on my counter is turning into a grand fail. There has to be a better way and I'm determined to keep looking until I find it.
