I didn't go to work today.  I just didn't feel like dealing with people.  Well, I guess that's not exactly true.  I went in for 30 minutes to grab something to work on at home.  Fiance took today off and drove me so I didn't have to stand in zero windchill weather.  The way it is at work, if I show up for a least a few minutes, showing an effort, then I don't have to take a sick day.  I'll be honest though, I did intend to do work but I couldn't focus.  I ended up working on my blog pages and facebook.  I'm so unproductive but I really need to be working.  I have a year-end report due at the end of the week, half a book chapter due by Wednesday (well, actually today but moved it) for the other contributor to review before it has to be submitted Friday, another partial book chapter due Jan 15th, and a seminar series to organize which starts in 2 weeks.  I'm so unmotivated right now.  I'm also wasting time looking for a reliable used cheap vehicle and apartments.  I can't afford a car but I have no choice if I'm moving.  I haven't really figured that part out yet. Too much to think about.

I need a vacation from my vacation.  Between two flat tires and having to replace all four around Christmas, Fiance's stepdad passing away right before Christmas, the 4WD and ABS breaking on the way home from the funeral, dad getting pneumonia, mom getting a bad cold, and fiance problems I'm exhausted.

For two days at least there was nothing that went wrong.  Christmas Eve and Christmas Day went extremely well.
