I lie awake...
I had a white chocolate mocha last night at about 7:30. Who knew that kind of caffeine could STILL be having an effect on you EIGHT HOURS LATER? I think I finally fell asleep sometime between 3:30 and 4:00. Not a happy Kate. I had to get up at 7:30 this morning. Well, stayed in bed until 8, but still. Grr.
The cat and I had some quality time, though. You know, when we (both Speckles and I) were younger, he used to sleep by my feet. Not on them, just by them. I suppose I didn't take up as much bed then as I do now, either. He's gotten a lot friendlier in the last few years, though, and now, if I'm laying on my side, he comes and snuggles right up against me and purs. If I'm on my stomach or my back, he comes and lays on me. Lol. Silly kitty. If he tries to share my pillow, though, he's history. No cat by my head. So anyway, in the two hours I laid awake last night, he and I bonded. =)
Yesterday, my parents and I saw The Emperor's Club. Good movie. I'd highly recommend it. It's got that Dead Poet's Society feel to it WITHOUT being a rip-off of that movie. It's quite good. And I like Kevin Klein a lot. Go see, go see.
Today, we got our tree and decorated it. We usually go up to Wisconsin and cut one down ourselves, but this year we were on a bit of a time crunch, so we just went to the Jaycees lot and picked one out. The people there were so funny... we were the only ones buying a tree, so they were all EXTREMELY helpful, and a few of them had antlers on. *giggle* Very cute. One lady had the kind of antlers the dog wore in the Grinch... one antler and doggie ears. heehee. I told her it was cute. My grandparents also came out, and my grandpa taught me how to make his famous Rainbow Cake. I think we're celebrating my mom's birthday tonight. Better get out and get the rest of her present... eeep! I've had NO TIME.
