Happy belated Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope everyone had a great holiday and stuffed themselves with lots of turkey. I am just starting to wake up from my carbohydrate coma. I had a wonderful weekend and spend some good time with family and friends.
I still don't have anything blog worthy. The last few weeks have been one crazy blur. I guess that is the typical holiday season.
I started my new job. So far, I really like it. It gives me a little peace and quiet (if you can believe that) and something to do in the evening. There is a good mix of people, some are my age and older just looking for holiday cash and then there are the high school students. I have a whole blog entry on the high schoolers. They are a riot and make me nervous for the future. Only kidding, as I was their age once. It is fun to people watch.
One benefit of this job is all the exercise I am getting. I push, I pull, I stock, and best of all I walk. I walk a lot. I am going to slap on a pedometer to see how far I walk each day I work. I came home from my first night and I was sore, good workout sore. I think this might be the jump start I was looking for.
I know I have said this before but our dog's health is going down the tubes. She took another turn for the worse this past weekend and it is looking like this week might be it. I had another gut wrenching talk with the kids. My middle child was sobbing as was I and my oldest just rolled his eyes and said "yeah yeah, heard this all before". I just had to laugh when he said that because it is true. But unfortunately the time has come for our good friend Riley and we are making the appointment for later this week.
The agenda today involves finishing the decorating I started. The tree is up, but no decorations. The bins are all pulled but all my decorations are still in them. It feels like I just put all this stuff away! This year it is a challenge as Baby Diva is now a Toddler Diva and into EVERYTHING. Our tree is going to look pretty funny with all the ornaments on the top half. Also, since today is December 1st, I need to make a list of all my holiday favorite things I want to do in the next 25 days.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and I am planning on sitting down with a glass of wine tonight to catch.....make that a bottle as I have a lot of catching up to do. Ha!
