Feeling a tad wistful today. I know some loathe the holidays and count the days til they are over, but Christmas is usually my favorite time of year.

Riding through the neighborhood and houses that have been lit for the last month no longer are, numerous sad looking abandoned Christmas trees are curbside with the garbage, no more Christmas songs, etc.

Seems like it flew by!

This is bizarre. I am subscribed to Center ice through Comcast X1. However it will not show me the games and gives me the message that I have to be subscribed. Yet, I had set up the DVR to record the games, and it recorded them flawlessly. So I can't watch them live but I can record them.

Also I have called Comcast three times and they have yet to solve the issue. 😣

I've been feeling that way also. It did seem to go by quickly this year.
It's tricky to refocus and get settled in life again.

Overall, I feel grateful.

I think this year Christmas Day and New Year's Day falling on Sundays, therefore making the following Mondays holidays, has also thrown me off a tad.

Slowly getting back into my routine, though.

And yes, it's always good to be grateful!

I always marvel at how the Garden's bull gang can make the switch from basketball to hockey in about 2 hours.

Stagehands at NBC in New York have a much tighter window. They must strike the set used on the cold open of SNL in 1m 40 seconds.

Anyone else going to Frozen Fenway tomorrow? My son got us tickets and I'm really psyched about going. Should be a lot of fun, so long as it doesn't snow.

hopefully this snow stays east.
last Thursday we got about 12 inches of that heavy crap.
I think this storm its more east, so its looking like about an inch or two of fluff.

perfect to make the 45 minute hike up the mountain and make the quick 5 minute sled all the way down.
