Holiday Run Streak, Day #2 (Black Friday)

Another 3.4 tonight, slower than last night. Feeling my way back, stopping occasionally to avoid being hit by cars. Humid and overcast. Not quite spitting.

Typically Black Friday is when I put up our Christmas tree. Going back some years (to when my wife and I actually shopped on Black Friday) I would put the tree up at midnight, watch Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" and then catch a couple hour catnap before going out. This year I decided to break with tradition, and my wife talked me into staying in bed all day with the family in our new matching set of pajamas. Have to tell you, I'm a little surprised that I'm that guy. But it was comfortable and a whole lot of fun.

So tomorrow I'll do some shopping, tidy up the house and put up the Christmas decorations. The older of our two cats (both of whom are eight years old, and six months apart) has decided he doesn't need to use the litter box. So I'm working on that. Poor guy is feeling a bit neglected since the baby has come along, and since we've been back to work.

So in addition to all the regular cleaning and decorating I want to see if there's a way I can set up an extra kitty friendly space in our basement. It has some nice windows he likes to sit in, so I'll see if I can ease access up there. I'm also putting more time into playing with him, and spoiling him with some turkey from Thanksgiving.
