Bookgroup Thursday and some figure skating.

Sitting down with a hot cup and tea and getting a little personal computer time.  Ahhh.

Lately, I feel like everytime I get home from work I am so tired.  Mentally finished.  We are working on the final stages of a new program that will go worldwide.  There are lots of things that have to be cleaned up.  It seems like issues from 2006 & 2007 keep popping up.  Those problems cut into my time I use to take care of current problems.  The pressure is on to get all of those old items taken care of my year end.  Yikes!

So I have been able to watch a couple of figure skating competitions on TV in the last few days.

I totally love to watch them.  The commentators may say some of the dumbest things, but the music, sound of the blades on the ice, the gracefulness and athleticism of the skaters, and their crazy costumes are worth it.  Ralph hates the sport, especially the commentators, and usually leaves the room when I turn it on.  I try to be mindful, but sometimes I don't care.  If I have to put up with some of his silly sci-fi programs, he can deal with me watching some figure skating.  By the way - the winter olympics are just around the corner.  I can't wait!

Last night I went to my monthly bookgroup.  It was good as always.  I love it when everyone can make it.  We read Middlemarch by George Eliot.  Took me forever to get through it, especially the first 200 pages, but as I got into the book and got closer to the end I decided it was worth hanging on and getting to the end.  I love listening to the other gals and their thoughts and opinions.  I get to host the group next month.  We are going to read Candide.  Should be interesting. 
I love a good book.

Well, I am off to bed.  Ta Ta for now
