Back to work. LOVED my 4 days of off-ness. LOVED it. I was the ultimate lazy. I didn’t do anything that I really had planned to do. and you know what, I am ok with that. I went to bed early and I was calm and I rested and I think that was exactly what I needed. We had thanksgiving dinner at eric’s mom’s house with the Arizona residents. I felt so bad cause my MIL was totally sick0 and still hosted a wonderful dinner. We do the traditional stuff-tried and true and always delicious. We didn’t eat until 5pm, and I took a 2 hour nap before getting after my assignment. I have a standing assignment. I am the yams girl. love it. it’s the only time in the year that I ever make it. it’s really more of a dessert item if you count the calories… so yummy. So I didn’t eat anything all day and of course ate myself sick at dinner. The next morning we decided to get off our duffs and go hiking. We loaded and hit target on the way to pick up a infant backpack. We hiked Usery Pass- the day couldn’t have been more perfect. it was absolute hiking weather. We packed a lunch and ate it at the top of the trail. The kids did great… loved being out of the house. Capri did pretty good in her backpack. It’s still hard for her to hold her head and body up for very long… but she loved the constant bounce and even got a little nap on the way down. It was a great way to combat the overstuffed feeling from the day before.
Sadly, I must report that the pink Christmas forest is not complete. So I can’t post photos yet. But I figure I have until Dec 1. (did I mention that I was VERY lazy for the last 4 days…laundry was my greatest achievement).
I was notified earlier today that my Big Picture ‘a year to remember’ class has filled and registration is closed! I love the motivation, and challenge and good stuff that I feel about this class. There is a yahoo group that is already getting to know one another…if you are in there and want to know more, I think you can email big picture folks and they can point you in the right direction- or look on yahoo. SO to ALL OF YOU…. Around the world… that will be joining me on this amazing, rewarding and exciting journey… yeeeeeehaw!!! We are going to have a blast.
It’s only 11:35pm and I am tired. Why???
I think I am going to go curl up in my bed and write a to-do list. I have a Monday tomorrow… I think I need a good Monday!
I broke down and made choc. Chip cookies tonight. they turned out fantastic.
