Up very late today -- after noon -- but that is perhaps to be expected. I had a very nothing sort of afternoon, though, which was kind of frustrating. I tried to read some of my ARCs for work, and I tried to write some poetry, and I failed at both attempts. I also tried to take a nap, but that didn't happen either. I did update my LiveJournal for yesterday, which is something.
In the evening, at least, I had the book store staff Christmas dinner to get me out of the house and give me something to do. As with most meals out, I had trouble keeping carbs within my newly-imposed limits, but I didn't eat the free bread, didn't have a beer or two, and chose a main dish that was basically a big slab of meat with vegetables, so I did reasonably well. (I checked my blood sugar about an hour after dinner and then again after two hours, and it was well within the acceptable range both times.) I walked over to the restaurant and got a ride home, which seems to be the pattern these days.
I got home around 9:30 PM and the evening was a pretty quiet one after that. I have two long and one short shifts ahead of me, but then it will be Christmas and I'll have a day off. I work again Friday, but after that my scheduled is mostly clear until the schools start up again. I plan to enjoy the calm.
