look at me, look at me, look at me now
Life has been busy. We’ve been making zombie art:
Finishing up Christmas stockings:
Opening birthday gifts:
(The inside says, “Not a damn thing.” Thanks Jessica for all the above gifts! You’re the bestest friend a girl could ask for!)
And HOLY CRAP SHE’S STANDING.
Aside from all of that madness, I went for a fantastic run with a new friend, Anthony. Well, not so much new, since I’ve known him since May, but how well do you really know someone until you chat about random stuff while running? We did an easy 7.25 miles and then he surprised me with a bottle of wine as an early Christmas gift wrapped in a festive holiday sock. That, is fantastic.
Running + bottle of wine = new best friend.
I never thought it would happen, but I’m a running whore. Typically I run with MindBling on Sundays, but Anthony had asked if we could go running this Sunday, and who am I to deny a friend from a long run? But no worries, my conscience is clear – Bethany and I will be running on Thursday after my spin class.
I spread my love of running all over.
Right now I’m sitting in the hallway listening to the fan and Claire playing in the bathtub. What an imagination she has. Both of the kids. During the day, we rarely have the tv on. I save it for when Mommy needs a break. So otherwise, we listen to Pandora and I let them do their thing. Since a lot of cardboard boxes have been coming in for Christmas, we’ve had plenty to spare. They’ve turned them into present boxes, costume boxes, drawing boards and cars.
We will continue to be busy until Saturday and that’s fine with me.
Because this is going to be the best Christmas ever.
