I've been playing catch up since Thanksgiving in all manners of things-exercise, eating right, cleaning, taking down and putting up decorations, blogging, and Christmas shopping. Phew! Even with everything that was going on in my life last year, I think I had more gifts at this time then, than I do now. Falling behind is not a good feeling for me.
So....I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and overate. I kept thinking I was going to eat a lot, but I didn't do too bad. Yay! We had quite the feast too:
|Three kinds of turkey, gravy, and homemade cranberry sauce|
|Green bean casserole, stuffing, and candied yams (the marshmallows melted)|
|Brussel sprouts and Japanese snacks|
Sadly enough, the pies went undocumented. Sorry!! They were really good though! Everything was delicious and went perfectly, as long as I don't mention how mashed potatoes were forgotten...thanks to yours truly. :)
I didn't do the Black Friday thing-as I can't stand crowds-but I did go into work. It was only for a few hours, and then I got to come home to this:
Apparently, the Hubby was correct and we did have termites in our kitchen counters. The wood under the counter to be exact. I am happy to report they did not go into the cabinet that remains or the wall behind it. Although...since I am getting my granite now, maybe if they had I would be getting new cabinets too....just saying.
I know it is Workout Wednesdays, but I have only worked out twice this week: 1. Monday the Hubby and I went for our regular three mile run and 2. Since the Hubby was busy at the brewery tonight I paid some attention to Mr. Mill (my treadmill) and did three miles. We are doing the Renegade Santa run in Irvine on next Saturday and I am trying not to embarrass myself. I haven't decided if we should do a 5k or 10k, so more on that later.
I do know that I am fully prepared with my newest socks:
How sad is it that I was smiling when they arrived today? :)
And I will leave you with a picture from our Monday night run....so beautiful!
1. Anyone racing before Christmas?
2. What is one Christmas tradition you always do?
