2012 flew by so quickly I almost can’t believe tomorrow begins 2013. I turned 25 this year and while I know this is in no way old, I can already feel how much faster time flies as the years pass. This year saw a few lows (getting mugged, saying goodbye to Paige), but many more highs (becoming Volunteer Coordinator for One Tail at a Time and Chicklet, of course). Read more

I don’t have to be back at work until January 2 so I’m enjoying the down time, but when I do head back, I wish this little pal could tag along like she did before the holidays. She was a very good girl hanging out in my cube and much to my surprise I was productive the whole day:)
With Christmas now over and the end of the year looming, it’s sad to think we spend so much time looking forward to the holiday season only to have it come and go so quickly. I’ve spent the past week exploring the Chirstkindlmarket downtown (where I had the best soft pretzel of my life), visiting the Peanuts exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry (which was amazing), reuniting with friends and spending time with family.
**And today I was made rudely aware of the fact that the holidays are over when my car was towed (although I initially thought it was stolen). Thank goodness Chick was not in the car. And everyone else who lives in Chicago: don’t park your car in the Jewel parking lot at Division and Ashland. Even if you’re shopping at a store in that shopping center, they have spotters patrolling the lot and if they see you take one step off the “property,” they will call it in. I learned this one the hard way.
Chick just wants to game in peace.
Thanks, Josh for the photos!
…and finally bought a tree! It’s fake (the only kind of tree I have ever known) and while this picture here makes it look rather pitiful, it has since been decorated with gold lights and a few more ornaments. There may even be a present or two underneath. I can’t believe Christmas is only a week away.
Christmas is a sneaky little holiday and I can’t believe it’s less than two weeks away. This is a slight problem because I realized I haven’t done anything very festive yet. One thing I do each year though is watch the movie Prancer. With Sam Elliot (aka the voice of “Beef, it’s what’s for dinner”) and a real live Prancer set in the 1980s it’s hard to beat.
