It is not the Tree Trimming you normally think of this time of year, but the trimmers are out in full force today. I counted 9 trucks in a 3-4 block stretch, including a crew in my sister's back yard.
Passed all those trucks this morning - twice - and not a single catcall. I don't know whether to have my feelings hurt a little or be proud of workers with their minds on the job.
Hmmm...what do we have here?
Husband deserves a prize today for getting me out of bed. I was desperate for a good night's sleep last night so I decided to take some Nyquil. This morning I was quite groggy and had no interest in getting out of my cozy bed. There might have been some grumpiness and a little pillow flinging. Fortunately, my husband won the battle and got me out there.
This is the prize I am considering... Which one do you think he will like better??
My husband got a little St. Nicholas present from my sister. How fun is thist?? Love the Stormtroopers waving to him in the background. He wore it to work the other day. One of the fourth grade girl boarded the bus and exclaimed, "You're a nerd too??!?!?!?"
My eating can be summed up in one simple sign I saw at the store. Well, the cookies and a bunch of other stuff....
My exercise has been much more successful than my eating this week. On Monday I challenged myself to walk up and down a flight of stairs at work 25 times during the day. Did I mention I hate stairs? More accurately, I hate doing down stairs. I did them in 5 flight increments. And I drank both bottles of water I set out for myself.
I have walked three miles 5 out of the past 7 mornings. I feel pretty good about that. In the midst of all the craziness that is my emotions, I think those walks have kept me from completely losing it. There was a half-hearted attempt to get my husband to let me have my scale back this morning. Needless, to say my husband is much stronger than me and the scale has not returned from hiding.
Tomorrow I am home alone for the day. My to-do list is long and growing. Among other things, I am hoping to get packages ready to send to the West Coast family, clean the house, make my final baking list and finish shopping, Wish me luck!
