So many excuses to celebrate these days. Tomorrow is my one-year anniversary at Coverity, and I’ll finally know what it is like to have stock options. Then we have Thanksgiving and my nephew’s birthday. And then, what really matters: my birthday! I want to have a party in San Francisco, but I am still figuring it out the details. So keep either the 11th itself, or the Saturday before (the 8th) open on your calendars. As an early birthday present to myself, I am finally going to replace my lost camera (don’t know what I want though–they don’t make one as small as my old one anymore).
Then of course is the Christmas craziness, and I haven’t figured out what I am going to do, although I think it won’t be much. I want to save up my vacation for a Colorado ski trip in January, and thanks to my crazy summer, I have almost no vacation time. Besides, traveling around the holidays is no fun. Speaking of which, I am going to take the train to Sacramento for Thanksgiving for the first time. I think it will be just as fast and cheaper than driving, so I am looking forward to it (and seeing the family of course!).
I am hoping for a good ski season this year, and I plan on doing a lot of skiing, unlike last year. I have new skis that I have been staring at all summer, so I can’t wait to use them again. So I guess I have made that transition from disbelief that it is the holiday season to looking forward to everything that is coming up!
