What's going on?
December is upon us! Bring on the Christmas Season! I just bought some egg nog and I am in heaven.
Got a negative COVID test result this week, which was great. Gonna get another test tomorrow just to be sure Thanksgiving didn't give me more than a couple of extra pounds.
We spent a good portion of the week repainting our cabinets. My roommates started the project over the Thanksgiving break, and we finally got it done. Took a full week, but it looks great. We now have a beautiful, clean, sleek, white kitchen.
What I'm reading
This is the 500-page book I had my student read. It's good! It's a fantasy series with magic and whatnot. I'm enjoying it so far. I, unlike the genius boy, have not finished it. I should soon, though, because I told him to start reading the second book in the series...
What I'm listening to
The latest episode of The Mormon Mental Podcast - number 214 - is called "Nuance in considering Late Term Abortion". The guest is a nurse and midwife who brings some much-needed context to questions around abortion and I found it uplifting and informative.
