Time to rest!

    Phew! The busyness of the holiday is over. While I love Christmas, I actually prefer the February break because I actually feel like I got a break when I return back to work. December break you're so busy with the holidays, I end up returning to work  more tired than when I started break. Still, all in all, a very enjoyable week home with the family. The house is all de-Christmasized and we have returned back to normal routine. The snow is even gone. We had a very white Christmas and just melted in the last couple days. More snow is headed our way this week, although I don't think it's anything significant.
     Lydia was perfect Christmas morning. She came into our room, totally amazed. "Mom and dad, Santa has been here and he left presents!" Jonny wasn't that interested in actually opening his gifts this year, but he was interested in his gifts once they were opened. Lydia was more than eager to help Jon open his gifts. As for the Christmas lasagna contest, I won. At least I'm saying I did (because this is my blog and I can), although mom was very diplomatic wouldn't declare a winner. Kudos to Rudy though because he did pull off an excellent lasagna! His certainly looked prettier than mine because I browned mine a bit longer than I should have.
    I'm still going to therapy for the calf. The other upper leg muscle strain seems to have corrected itself with the help of the knee sleeve. The calf injury, although better, still bothers me. I have my follow up orthopedic appointment in a couple of weeks. I did a boot camp class on New Years Day and now my calves are sore from that...I'm guessing it was the hills she had us run. My calves were hollering at me during yesterday and today's run so I didn't push it. I don't have to weigh in for Weight Watchers until the end of the month--ah, the joys of being a life-timer. This will give me time to get a bit of the Christmas weight gain off. I did indulge over break and thoroughly enjoyed it.
     I should probably do one of those "Year in Review" blog entries, but I'm not going to lie, I probably won't do it. So here it is: I had a fantastic 2010 and can’t wait to see what 2011 will bring!


  1. The hussle and bussel of Christmas, I feel tired too ;-). I was just saying to a girl friend that I can't wait for hubby to go back to work and the kids back to school so we could get back to some routine in this house ;-).
    Glad you had a nice holiday, happy new year to you!

  2. Carrie,
    I feel the same way! The holidays were busy and went by fast. My doctor appointments have slowed, thank God, and I just got the decorations back in the attic. I am so ready for quite time! 2011 is gonna be a great year, you watch!

  3. I'm glad December is over too. I love Christmas but I don't care about New year's eve at all. January 1st can't come soon enough for me after Christmas. Back to daily routines which I love the most.
