Is anyone else loving the Apple commercials with Frankenstein’s monster as much as I am? Random, I know, but I can’t help but smile but when I watch them.
While last week seemed to be prolific in writing- I wrote 4 posts!- it was less so in running. No lies, I did nothing that even remotely resembled exercise. I meant to but it just never happened. Oh well. I made through a full week of work, that counts for something right? 😛
I caught up on everything I missed while I was gone from work for 2 weeks. I don’t really know anything more than I did before in regards to the merger but I am choosing to remain as optimistic and open about it as I can. I did some last minute Christmas shopping. I tried to help my mom with some last minute Christmas shopping. It kind of failed. We tried, though right?
Friday, I kind of felt like my day turned into a bad country song. It’s not even that the day was bad, it was just a rough start to the morning. Then I was delivering chocolates and cards to a few of our customers and realized that my old boots really need to be retired. That same puddle I parked in rewarded me with wet feet for the rest of the day. Then the end of the work day turned classic. You know those scenes in movies when cars drive by and drench the person and you think that doesn’t happen in real life? It so does! One lingering employee caught the action and we just stared at each other in disbelief. Well, she was in her nice dry car laughing and I was in a new puddle by my car.😔
Christmas eve dawned and it was freaking cold! I was hoping to get in a short run before Christmas Eve dinner and movie but instead I helped my brother do some very last minute Christmas shopping. Family had a very low key Christmas, comfy clothes, yummy food and movies for the weekend. This year’s viewing choices were Sully, Star Trek Beyond and a Netflix series called Travelers. Just the way we like it. It’s been a sad year family wise, so it was kind of an odd Christmas too but that happens sometimes too right?
