We gave ourselves a little bit of Christmas last night. We hung some lights, put up a tiny tree, displayed the stockings. It is simple, yet festive. There is no room in this apartment for a regular sized tree and we'll be gone for so long, it just didn't make any sense. What we have now is warm and cute. And just enough for the next couple of weeks.
Once we survive the next two weeks, we'll be on vacation. We still have work to do, thesis and dissertation, but will be away. Away from annoying upstairs neighbors. Away from ODU. Just away.
But, first, there is a lot to get done, so I best get to work.
