Happy Holidays!

Sorry for the delay in posting. I'm at my parents' house in California right now, and I can't keep track of the days of the week. I'm so happy to be on vacation! I'm reading for pleasure (am reading and enjoying Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go), playing with my iPad (my brothers and I have discovered the game Fruit Ninja, which is a ridiculously addictive game where you have to slice fruit thrown up in the air):

playing sports (tennis, ping pong, pool, and golf):
my younger brother and I on the golf course
reading the newspaper (hard copy of the LA Times, iPad version of the NYTimes), watching movies (saw TRON: Legacy last night--except I fell asleep during a big chunk of it because I was exhausted from golf), eating (of course! Had In n Out Burger on my first night back)
and just spending time with my loved ones (we played with my brother's XBOX Kinect, which is like the Wii, but without a controller--it uses a sensor.).
My older brother plays a dance game while his wife looks on.
The table is set for Christmas Eve dinner

Before I left work last Wednesday I was determined to reach Inbox Zero, as I knew I would be out of the office for almost three weeks (am on vacation until the ALA conference in San Diego, and won't be back in the office until January 12!).

And, look! I achieved it!!
It was so satisfying that I think I'm going to add "reach Inbox Zero at least once a month" to my work New Year's Resolutions for next year. More on that later...

Happy Holidays, all!

I bet you're happy that you missed the East Coast blizzard.
Fortunately, the storm didn't hit until the day after Christmas. Have a great time in sunny California!

Ah, those In 'N' Out burgers! Why is it that they're one of the first things missed when one leaves CA.

Your dining room is fab. The rest of the house must follow suit. Are we gonna be lucky enough to see more pictures of it?

Is Fruit Ninjas as addictive as Angry Birds? If so, I'm is my zero inbox, which, as it is, is a mere dream...Happy 2011
