What I’m Listening To This Christmas

By | December 17, 2013

I’ve got all this downtime because I didn’t use any vacation to speak of all year — I’m basically taking December off. Unfortunately, Carole’s working, so I’ve got the shortest days of the year in this wintry northern climate ALL TO MYSELF.

It’d be easy to just cocoon and sleep, but I’d like to look back later and say “I did something productive with my time.”

So, this is what I’m listening to in order to keep myself moving and motivated.

One thought on “What I’m Listening To This Christmas

    Well, one good thing about having me out of the house, is that you can play whatever you want, as loudly as you want. 🙂

    BTW, you were asking me about my schedule, so I wanted to tell you that I must go to that thing on my calendar tomorrow evening.
