New Year's Eve

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

Happy (almost) New Year!!

Busy day today...sorta. Got the bathroom wall painted and touched up. I must say that I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Just need to get a couple of dry wall nails to hang up the towel holders. Hubby brought home the drill, so we'll be able to hang up the door tomorrow. Yippee!!

Stay safe and have a great night!

  


Done!

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

It was a long day, but I got everything on my to-do list done! I went to the gym (lifting and cardio), took down all of the indoor Christmas decorations and took down the outdoor Christmas lights. And, I prepped the wall in the kids' bathroom for painting tomorrow. I even have dinner in the oven and will stay in my calorie range for today!!

Tomorrow is painting and maybe reorganizing the master closet. Maybe just the desk...we'll see how things go. My last big projects include getting my son's door to his bedroom put back on (just need hubby to bring home the drill), finishing the bathroom and taking care of the closet. Plus, I had time to relax. Not a bad vacation! And I don't go back to work until January 5th. Yippee!!!

  


Shopping with the kids

Monday, December 29, 2008

Both of my kids received money and gift cards for Christmas. Today, we went shopping! I did determine almost immediately that if this happens again next year, we're going to make two shopping days out of it. My son does NOT like shopping for clothes or jewelry or any other girly stuff. While I'm okay with that, it certainly made for an unpleasant start of the trip. After he got to do some toy shopping, his attitude improved significantly. Thank goodness!

Both kids made good purchases. They had made a list of what they wanted and mostly stuck to the list. We went to lunch at Carl's Jr and I did OK. I had a Famous Star burger and fries. Spent a little extra time in the gym this morning and had light dinner, so mostly stayed in my calories for today. Mostly. emoticon

Scheduled for tomorrow is taking down the Christmas tree and lights from outside, sanding the wall in prep for painting and "texturing" it. All this after going to the gym. I think it might be a little ambitious to get all of that done, but I'm going to try. I'll let you know how it goes!

    I'm glad you had fun with the kids. I have a son, almost 3, and we are expecting a girl. I think it's amazing to view the holidays through your kids' eyes. Who cares about a single trip to Carl's Jr. when it sounds like you made up for it later? Good luck on your continued journey.
