Worked over …

Oh. My. Goodness. Yesterday we UN-Christmas-ed the house. It took HOURS to finish, but it had to be done. And it feels great to have our house back. Immediately after finishing up I threw on my running shoes and headed out for a run. I never run in the evening but I slept in earlier and had to change up my routine. Running was part of my reward for packing the holidays away. That might sound crazy, but YES, running was my REWARD not a punishment. HA! Anyway, it was dark but it was still pretty early, so I didn’t feel tired even from all that UN-Christmas-ing. Then the rest of my evening was super mellow. A perfect Saturday night. I ate, I sat and I spent time with some of my favorite people. Nothing strenuous AT ALL. Why then, when I woke up in the middle of the night, could I not move? Good grief. It felt like I had been beat up. EVERYTHING hurt. Heck, it still does! I met a friend for an early breakfast this morning and I was sure that they were going to have to leave me behind because I could hardly get out of the booth. I was a mess! The only thing that we did out of the norm yesterday was UN-Christmas the whole house in one day. Usually it takes at least two days, sometimes three depending on how slow I am moving. So I’m contributing my sore body to the UN-Christmas-ing. Who knew that getting rid of Christmas could be so brutal?!?!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t feel worked over!!!

My sweet reward …

What’s better than an UN-Christmas-ed house? Rewarding yourself for UN-Christmas-ing the house! For me that looked like a nice evening run, a warm shower, comfy clothes, some great company and a glass of wine.

Well, I hope you all had a day where you received your sweet reward!!!

Practically perfect in every way …

Mary Poppins is my all-time favorite Disney movie. When people find this out they say that it explains a lot. HA! I guess I do live that whole “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down” thing when life gets unpleasant. And it has served me well! Anyway, today I took Libs and Reese to see Mary Poppins Returns and I absolutely LOVED IT. I won’t give any details about what happens in the movie but I will say that it was as magical as I had hoped it would be. And everything 7 year old me needed.

Well, I hope you all had a day that was practically perfect in every way!!!

Get moving (again) …

What is it about the time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve? I am a SLUG SLOTH PERSON! I guess after weeks of holiday craziness I can officially say that I am wiped out. Other than running to our shop and the printer yesterday, I did absolutely NOTHING. The kids were entertained and Candy Crush gave me about 6 hours of playtime. Don’t worry, I didn’t even come close to using all of that time. Yikes! It was an unusual day around her for sure. I have to admit that if I didn’t need to go to Trader Joe’s for food later, today probably wouldn’t look much more productive than yesterday.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get moving (again)!!!

Merry Christmas …

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11). And there is no greater gift that we could ever receive.

Well, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!!!
