Regularly scheduled programming

Right now I am sitting in bed, watching my Wolverines play in the Sugar Bowl. I envisioned this game starting a little (read: a LOT) better than this.

For the last hour I have been exchanging amusing text messages with Lucy. She's cheering me up about The Boy Who Shall Not Be Named; I am encouraging her little guy to be born tomorrow. Love her. And, my goodness, I am more than a little excited for that baby to be born. Love him, too.

When I got home from work I got in the bath with a book and didn't even consider going to the gym or to a yoga class and I don't feel even a little guilty about it.

Today I elected to give up on the brainy, science heavy non-fiction book that I had been trying to read for the last three weeks. I hate giving up on a book, but it just isn't happening for me. Not now. My head isn't in the right place. For anything but chick lit, anyway.

Yesterday I dragged Meg to the mall with me. (It wasn't a hard sell.) I had to exchange the pants that Aunt Annette got me for Christmas. Same cut, same store, same size that 90% of the slacks I wear to work are and they don't fit. The same way the majority of the pants that I wear to work haven't been fitting. I don't feel any lighter but my pants beg to differ. Didn't I just go through this? I hate shopping for pants.

Yesterday, Sunday, Saturday and Friday I didn't work. A fortunate schedule and the beauty of working in local government. So, so much better than the extra heavy schedule I used to work around the holidays. I could get used to this.

Tomorrow I'm going to give serious thought to my 2012 resolutions. I have ideas. I need to write them down. I need to execute.

For the next two days I'm staying at Mom and Dad's house. I'm watching the dogs; they're making a quick trip to Chicago to meet my cousin Mara's baby.

Sometime soon, on this humble little blog, I need to review the books I read in 2011. I need to write a recap of my 2011 resolutions. I need to write about the holidays with my crazy family and New Year's Eve with my crazy friends. I need to catch up. I need to make up for three weeks of whiny drivel. (Am I missing anything else?)

I'm convinced that retail stores keep changing sizes to keep us having to continue to buy more and more clothing. Especially pants. Especially if it's a company related to or like The Limited.
