One thing I did this morning: Tried to read my baby food cookbooks, but Imogene was too interested in them and kept grabbing at them. Imogene hasn't been as interested in her purees lately, so I'm wondering if it's time to mix it up int terms of flavor and texture.

For lunch I: had a ham sandwich (at 10:30 am, after returning from the newspaper starving!)

One thing I did after lunch: Laid down with Imogene.

One thing I did this afternoon:Wrote some odd copy for a client.

One thing I did (or am going to do) this evening: This is the first night this week that I get to spend at home (I've had newspaper meetings all week) so I want to make the most of it! We're going to watch a Christmas special with Imogene and then make a nice dinner.

I loved seeing: Not too many editing marks on my articles for this week.

I was challenged by: Paying attention to work this afternoon.

Today it: snowed, and then was sunny, in a matter of minutes.

One thing I did this morning: read a book while Imogene took a nap.

For lunch I: had a leftover hamburger that wasn't quite heated all th away through 😐

One thing I did after lunch: Sat with Imogene and figured out if we have a whole set of alphabet blocks (we do, with two extra A's, C's, and O's)

One thing I did this afternoon: Cleaned downstairs while listening to Gilmore Guys.
One thing I did this evening: (Well, one thing I'm going to do to this evening, since it's afternoon now) -- go to a town meeting for the newspaper.

I loved seeing: Imogene by the Christmas tree.

I was challenged by: Listening to Imogene cry when she should have been taking a nap.

Today it: was revealed that Donald Trump is Time Magazine's person of the year 🙄

I've tried many blogs in my day.

Back in 1908 when I was in seventh grade, I had some sort of a website that allowed me to create bulletpoints and put my text in Comic Sans font. To me, that level of control and exposure was as good as being a published author (world renown). On my website, I made lists of inside jokes that only my friends would understand. They did the same on their websites. If someone landed on a web of our websites, they could cross-reference our inside jokes and laugh for hours. To my knowledge, that never happened. 

In college I had a Livejournal, where I wrote exhaustive explanations of Things That Happened. My best friend Randie also had a Livejournal, and I think the most amusing thing about either one was that I could read our slightly different takes on the same mundane events. Notably, one night our building lost power and we had to evacuate at 3am. We were corralled into an academic building and then told to find friends to stay with. We both struggled to na...
