What A Day!

Friday, December 23, 2011

The day started off great: 10 mins on the elliptical and then an hour boxing class. While I was standing by the front desk and getting ready to leave, one of the guys comes over and gives me a great, big hug. He says, "You know, for someone who was gone for so long, your body looks great!" How'd that make me feel? WONDERFUL! Wish I felt the same way about my body. I guess all that running did my body good.

Got home and ate some breakfast. Of course, I had to go on the computer and that was the end of all the errands I had to do. Got caught up on checking email, reading all the sparks stuff that I never got out the door until I had to take my son to his friends house (which wasn't just around the corner. Wasn't too thrilled about that.). On the way back, I called DH to see if he ate lunch. He had, but he wanted to know if I wanted him to take the princess to the mall. So, had to meet him in a parking lot and do the switfcharoo, Felt like a divorced couple switching the kids for the day. Weird!! Got home and had to bake for my friend: a cinnabon cake. Ate some lunch while it was baking. Then, got a text from my son that I could pick him up from his friend. Back in the car again.

Got home and got my things to go back to the gym to take a spin class. I know, crazy!! Double dipping in the exercise, but it was such a good class. Got home, showered, ate a little something and then, baked another cinnabon cake for the house and to give some away to friends.

Now, I'm sitting and listening to music. Have to put the wash in the dryer and then, wrap some presents for tomorrow (trading gifts with my daughter's friend.).

Btw, forgot to blog about our new addition to the family: we adopted a dog on Saturday from the pound. He is so cute. He's a corgi mix, one year old. Here's some pics of him:

My oldest (21) with the new guy

The youngest boy (16) with the new guy

The one with my 19 year old won't rotate, so it would be weird to post it. Don't want anyone getting a crick in their necks!!

Here's a few pics of my princess with her first night of Chanukah gifts:

All the presents!

What could it be????

Won't rotate, but it says it all: Another American Girl doll!

Rachel and Kanani

And here is what the boys got:

They get money for reading the 5 books and writing a 2 page summary. Aren't you glad you don't have their DAD as a parent??

Looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend.

Until then-
