What a BUSY week it's been...
Starting off with a GREAT xmas party (given by my hubby's work) It was held at the Delta Armories (a beautiful hotel, dressed in its xmas finest) It included a fantastic buffet dinner. I'm pleased to report I made great choices & even included a great pecan pie to accompany my coffee. I danced my socks off...since they also had a videographer which made the music even sweeter. I danced for both my mom, a christmas angel now, & myself. I swear i inherited my LOVE for the season & it's spirit from her...Sat. was her birthday & I could feel her smiling as I shook what she gave me!!!
Before i went, i had a great workout which included plenty of H20 so even after my refreshments, I had no after effects. (LOL) Even so, i thought it was great that they offered taxi rides to anyone who enjoyed the night a little too much!!! The hubby & I didn't need it though. It really felt like a beautiful beginning to the holiday season...I'm so glad we went. i came home with a gorgeous engraved, dated xmas ornament that came in a green velvet box...as door prize draw. (a bonus)
Sunday we did some fridge & freezer rearranging to accomodate my last grocery shop for the holidays. I did my menuplanning for the week, laundry, you know the drill..
Yesterday began with an 8 am. dentist visit for a cavity repair, followed by a 10 am. life insurance appointment...what a way to start the week...The afternoon picked up with my aquafit class & a good sleep...think the novacaine wiped me out...haha.
I then came up with a brilliant last minute idea to list some furniture for sale on kijiijii. (without pics, silly me) So now i spent this afternoon since getting up attaching pics to reply emails... Will I ever get tech savvy??? I hope to unload it before xmas.
I'm looking forward to a Thurs. girls getogether lunch at my sisters place for my closest cousins. even though I will be sleep deprived, I'm really looking forward to it. With my shifts, it's so hard to keep in contact with family & friends.
My WI today was 124.8. (up 1.4 lbs. from last week) i still plan on going bathing suit shopping...but on Dec. 28th instead of boxing day. I'm going to spend boxing day visiting with family...no purchase is more important to me than that...so Judy, maybe i'll see the 28th in the am., my spark buddy.
Work has been all encompassing...but I'm managing to keep it all in perspective. The more that piles up, the more I'm shrugging it off my shoulders!!! (haha) Funny thing about the holidays...my work piles each day whether I'm there or not... Thank goodness I'm a good swimmer!!!
Wishing you all an extremely fantastic Christmas filled with family blessings, rest, happiness & health. & Yes, I'll be back for my WI & blogging on Christmas Day!
Happy sparkin Christmas,
