Tonight we are going to see Celine Dion. One of her Las Vegas performances was recorded and will be broadcast to select theatres participating in Fathom Events. It's a one night only event. And we got tickets! I'm very excited.
I was very happy to send B to school today. He woke up full of energy this morning (even singing before getting out of bed). P was feeding off that and things were already getting crazy for the half hour they were together. It's been so nice having my husband work from home the majority of the week (due to icky parking issues at work). Today he volunteered to take B out and wait for the bus. It's been so cold lately.
It has been reconfirmed that electronics don't like me. My Sims 2 Bon Voyage suddenly won't run anymore. Apparently it's not just me. I looked on the forums and others have played just fine for months until it up and won't run anymore. Don't get an error or anything, just hit play on the launcher, get a spinning disc icon, then nothing. *sigh* At least there seems to be a solution. Sounds complicated, but I'll mess with it today. At least it's not the disc itself, or my computer. It's an issue with the software. But that same day (yesterday, that is) I went to turn on a CD in the kitchen while I fixed dinner, and my CD player doesn't work anymore. :-( It will play the radio just fine, but won't spin or recognize discs. I guess it had to die eventually. I've had it for about ten years now. Guess I'll stick to listening to the radio in the other room.
One week until Christmas Eve! Got your shopping done? I didn't bother putting up the tree this year. By the time I was done with one of the puzzles from my birthday, only had a couple weeks left until Christmas. Don't have a lot of space out in the front room, and we don't spend a lot of time out there anyway. So I left the card table up instead, put a red tablecloth on it, and a Santa figurine to watch over the presents. Much less work than shaping and decorating a tree. Happy Holidays everyone!
