Thirteen Days

Good evening everyone.  I took one of my patented naps after returning here following work today, and now I'm typing up some more drivel for you (because that's the thoughtful type of person I am) as my friend's family (and all of their pets) rest comfortably in bed.  Upon the completion of my nap and entering the living room, I found the whole family watching 'Million Dollar Arm.'  This was a pretty cool family activity to intrude upon as all of the lights were turned off and everyone was comfortably enjoying the movie together on the couch and love seat.  If you continue to stop by and visit my blog, you're going to continue to see me expressing my gratitude to my family and friends for all of their kindness in looking out for me upon my return to Texas from Nevada...  I don't think they have any idea how much I appreciate them...

If you haven't figured it out yet (did you even try?), 'Thirteen Days' is a reference to how many days of work I have remaining before I move into my new apartment (at my old apartment complex)...  For those of you keeping score at home (and really, aren't you all?), I have 3 days of work left this week, 5 days next week, a 1-day "work week" the day after New Year's (don't get me started), and 4 days the following week.  If I'm doing the math correctly (and I know that I am, or I wouldn't even bring it up), I have more days off in the next month than I actually work (and I can already tell you that's going to be in drastic contrast to what will be happening after I move into my new place, my new, EXPENSIVE place).  Regardless, I expect the next month to fly by as Christmas and New Year's are fast approaching.  We actually had our Christmas party at work today (well, Christmas meal, again, for those of you who are keeping score at home).  While there weren't any gifts exchanged, there was A LOT of food.  As I type this, Christmas is just over 15 days away, and 2015 is just over 22 days off.

Again (and obviously to your detriment), you will see more posts from me once I get moved into my new place.  Although I'll be working more once I eventually get settled, I'll do my best to catch up on summarizing my experiences from my almost three-month vacation in the desert from the late summer and early fall.  I won't be visiting any casinos for a while, but I'm tentatively aiming for a December 2015 vacation in Las Vegas.  I'm going to have to save up a significant amount of money over the next year to make this vacation happen.  Another monkey in the wrench is that the lease that I just signed recently will be ending at the conclusion of next year, so I'll have to figure out if I'll be remaining in my new apartment for another year.  If I stay, that will be another expensive year, and if I leave, I'll obviously be moving at the onset of 2016.  Yeah, I'm also wondering exactly when this blog became my diary...  :)  If I have the money and I can get the time off from work, an upside of this vacation is that there's no cheaper time to visit Las Vegas than in December (something about families being home for the holidays I hear)...  Speaking of families (SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT), my brother's family is about to (yeah, can you believe it..., SERIOUSLY???) MOVE... BACK... TO... LAS VEGAS...  Just let that sink in for a minute.......  :)  Yes, so if I'm successful in working this trip out, I'll be visiting them over the holidays next year (like I will be this year, except that they're in San Antonio right now).

I think that I'm going to turn in for the night now (releasing breaking news is pretty exhausting)...  ;)  Have a good one and I'll see you later in the week with some football picks...
