Big Sigh of Contentment

Despite the raging headache that has settled in behind my left eye {making me look pirate like with a squinty eye,} today has been absolutely wonderful.

It happened alot like I predicted it would in yesterday's post.

Got up, ate breakfast, edited and submitted my paper, worked out, showered and dressed, and commenced relaxation.

Ian and I had a picnic lunch in fron to the tv {leftover pizza and an episode of The Office, was on the menu,} and then that segwayed right into my Wrapping Extravaganza of 2009. I cleared off a huge area of floor, popped in season 7 of 24, and wrapped for the next three hours.

It was SO satisfying.

And then I went downstairs, made gingerbread cookies, decorated them with icing, and had dinner with my family.

Settled onto the couch with my pillow and pile of blankets {and my dad's laptop which is the only one with any sort of battery life,} to watch Ian play Call of Duty and to get caught up on blog reading.


What a great day.

{on a side note, I did take pictures of some of today's activites, but my camera has been on the fritz all week. I can't wait until we get our first paycheck in January, because I'll be getting a new camera! Wahoo!}
