I'm baking this weekend. Hopefully, that will distract me some. Plus, I finally have time to sit down and get some Christmas writing done. Oh, and we're celebrating Alex's birthday on Sunday. My baby turns 19 on Monday, but he's got finals both Monday and Tuesday, so Sunday it is.
But...my baby is turning 19! When did that happen?!?
Yesterday: What is your evening routine like?
Dinner is usually around 6, after which Craig and I sit and watch TV for a couple of hours to unwind (about 70% of the time, sometimes one or the both of us has other work to do). Then I catch up on stuff on the computer and relax there for a bit. Between 9 and 10, we get into the hot tub if it's not raining so I can help my joints with the heat. If we can't do that, I get into the tub and soak there. If we're in the hot tub, that's mine and Craig's decompression time. We talk about everything there - work, the kids, news, everything. If I'm in the bathtub, I read. At 11, I do nighttime skin regimen, then read until I can't keep my eyes open any longer. That could be anywhere from 11:30pm to 1am, though usually just around midnight.
Today: Of the four personality temperaments based on the ancient Greek humors—sanguine, phlegmatic, choleric, and melancholic, which one best describes you?
Melancholic, by a long shot. I'm not an extrovert, so sanguine and choleric are out. I do have phlegmatic tendencies, but melancholic with the detail-oriented, perfectionistic behaviors is much more at the root of me.
