Total Eclipse of the Heart
I can’t believe Christmas is getting so near :D I am super excited to cook dinner for the first time! And by dinner I mean Christmas dinner… I make dinner on a quite regular basis :p This is the first year that I won’t be home with the family back in Wisconsin for the holidays. It does make me quite sad to think that I won’t be able to see everyone, but guess what? I will! We are planning to use Yahoo! Messenger to webcam with the fam back home! :D Our computer (well, it is technically John’s) apparently won’t download Skype so we are stuck with messenger. I don’t really care, as long as I can see my family!
The other night there was a total lunar eclipse! Apparently it’s the first in like 34 years or something? It was cool to be able to see it and in Alaska! :lol: The moon was really small cuz it was far up in the sky and my camera is broken! All I have is my little iPhone and it didn’t pick up shit so the pictures you see here of the eclipse are from someone on facebook who posted her pics taken by campus. John and I only saw a couple minutes of it, just after the eclipse when the coppery color was starting to fade and it was like -20 degrees and I was tired so we didn’t stay long. I don’t remember ever seeing one before so I thought it was pretty neat even though we didn’t stay too long.
Another night alone tonight John has 24-hour duty again so he won’t be home now until 9AM tomorrow. He was only home today for dinner. It is helping me get things done though. haha Put off cleaning the entire house until this week and we have people coming over for Christmas! The house wasn’t really that unbearable, just really needed to be vacuumed because of all the dog and cat hair and the kitchen and dining room needs help. Oh and the bathroom because the cat insists on making a mess on the floor with his food and then moving it all over the floor lol I’m almost done though! Just need to sweep/mop the kitchen and then clean the bathroom. And we still have all day tomorrow and some time on Friday to finish :D (needs to be done Friday cuz a friend is coming over and staying the night). Wish me luck!
Did you see the eclipse? What are your plans for Christmas?
