Actually, I'm still eating Thanksgiving meals from the left-overs. I had to get a pizza for lunch today at Costco for something completely different though.
It's Dance Week at work again. I've opted out of performing nor am I choreographing this time. It's just too soon and so hard to get everyone together, blah, blah, blah. Frankly, I just needed a break. I've already got something twisted in my mind for May so we'll have to wait & see.
Yesterday I was shot when I got home. I taught 2 dance classes and assisted 1 other 1. My knee was swollen to twice the size of the other 1. It's been awhile since I've had that many dance classes in 1 day. I took a nice hot bath when I got home, popped 4 - 200mg. ibuprofens, watched a bit of tv after walking the dog and went to bed. Sometimes you've just gotta be good to yourself.
I did manage to finally figure out what to get my brother B. for Christmas. He is not so easy to buy for and he won't help you with either. Ugh! Pain in my you-know-what. But...it's done and so is my shopping for the family & friends. Whew!
It's clear that I won't be able to wrap the gifts and set them out under the tree this year 'cuz of the kitten. He's almost killed a couple of my plants and I'm sure he'd have everything ripped apart & the tree down and all of the ornaments scattered to the 4 corners if I did. So, no tree this year. I might buy some poinsettias though and maybe put up some lights but no on the tree. He is still a constant source of astonishment and poor Putney is a constant reminder of patience in action. He is so wonderful with that crazy kitten. Oh lord, he's at it again.
The weather is changing rapidly this week, so I need to wrap up the pipes outside of my house so they don't freeze & burst on me.
Remember to get ahead of your celebrations, drink lots of water along with the fun stuff, watch your portions, and drive carefully. Time for defensive, aware driving skills. Don't drink & drive, select a DD. Bundle up so you don't invite the flu or a cold or Strep throat or anything else trying to take hold of you this season. Keep your workouts going. Even if you only have 15 min. to workout, it's better than skipping it all together, right? You can still do a pretty good weight routine with 1 exercise each for the chest, back & legs, 2-4 sets and be done in 15-20 min. and get your total body workout in. You can do 3-10 min. or 2 -15 min. cardio workouts/day. They don't have to be 30 min. at 1 time.
Lets make it through this season, happy, healthy & hearty. Let the parties begin! Fa-la-la-la-la...la-la-la-la!
By the Samantha, I missed the last 2 numbers of your phone number. They got garbled on the voicemail you left me.
