My cold is finally 100% gone. The rest of this month though is going to be crazy. Today Im making sugar cookies and brownies for the family cookie exchange. Every year I make over 100 sugar cookies plus something new. This year Im making brownies dipped in white chocolate and then sprinkled with peppermint stick dust. Tomorrow we are all heading out to my grandparents place to make cookies that look like candy canes and this one cookie that is filled with whipped egg whites, sugar and walnuts and then covered in powdered sugar. They are so yummy. Then we divide ALL the cookies. In the end there is about 15 to 20 different kinds of cookies.
Next week Im babysitting 3 days, making around 12 loafs of pumpkin bread, and german chocolate cake from scratch. I also need to fit in time to go Xmas shopping. My moms side of the family does Xmas the weekend before. The only time I have is Sunday for shopping.
If there is time I want to go to the gym this Sunday. After next weekend I plan to go every chance I get. Come the new year I am going to have a schedule for every day and I plan to stick to it. It includes: house work, at home exercise, gym, exercise with grandma, and my "me time".
This whole year I have felt cursed so I plan to make 2017 my year.
