Good morning and happy almost Christmas! EEEEEEEEEEEEEK! So excited. I am traveling to my home state of Vermont via New York. Thankfully not Atlanta eh? Scary shit! I’d probably lose what marbles I had left if I was trapped in an airport for 11 hours with no power. I have trip stress already and I don’t leave til Wednesday!
Joining Clean Eats, Fast Feets for a review of the week…since I can’t seem to find the time to post daily. My goal for 2018 is to improve this!
I’m happy to report I delivered and received my first bottle of wine in the wine exchange! Hoping to get more but even one was exciting<<doesn’t take much to excite me these days LOL
I made dozens of buckeyes all week in preparation for the cookie swap which happened on Thursday. I did really well by not eating ALL the cookies I received but the bad news is I had a belly ache as I still ate too many. Every year I try to do better…the good news is someone made Russian Wedding Cake cookies or Russian Tea I’m not sure what you call them but the powdery white ones. YUM!
Friday was our company party. They made me sing. I don’t sing. Thankfully half the people in the group don’t either 😀 After the party–translation I ate too much–I took the night off from the gym and made friends with my couch. I rarely lay on the couch and never watch TV so I asked my 16 year old to find me something on Netflix. He chose Orange is the New Black. Yes, I know I am waaaaaaaaaaay behind the power curve on this one AND I’m not so sure that I am ok with the fact that he recommended it? YIKES. He also says that I remind him of the main character…I’m too nice and people always take advantage of me. YIKES again. I mean if he thinks I’m nice that’s great but I hope I am setting a stronger example than that, which he assured me I was. Maybe I read too much into that. Anyhooo–interesting show.
I tried really hard over the weekend to organize my house, the laundry and a bunch of other things. I hate leaving things in disarray when I go on vacation. Like no dishes in the sink and don’t forget to dump the coffee grounds out so they don’t grow mold. There will be lots of them. We need to leave the house at 0400 :O Good times.
So this is a short week for me. It’s supposed to be 60 degrees. Preparation for the below zero weather I am about to endure. And snow. All for the kid. I’d rather go to the beach!
I hope you have a wonderful week and holiday. I’d like to think I’ll have time to write over vacation…BUT I plan to have eggnog keeping me occupied. Speaking of…I tried the Almond Nog…ummmm yea no. I mean with a little liquor it was quite tasty but I’ve now turned it into a coffee creamer and that works exceptionally well! I will be buying the real stuff soon 😉
OK it’s your turn. Tell me about your week!
