Today was my "recovery day" from Thanksgiving feasting (all week really), traveling, the business of the holiday and black Friday shopping...or so I thought. I was gonna just take it easy until I saw the number on the scale which definitely reflected the candy, pie, turkey, rolls, corn dog and junk on the ride home...That little voice in my head said "Rest??? I think not. It's time to get your butt to the gym."
I love attending other Zumba classes. I get new song ideas, choreography ideas...and let's face it, it's fun to not always be in charge of the class. Wrong foot? who cares??? Wrong direction? who cares??? it's awesome! lol. After class I hit up JCP. Yes JcPenneys. They have revamped their store and a friend of mine was wearing a darling shirt I. JUST. HAD. TO. HAVE. I thought about hiding it from Brian so he didn't make me wrap it up and stick it under the tree. I needed this shirt now. :) turns out he going easy on me this year.
I have been avoiding emails and responsibilities so I could focus on family during the break so today was make up for my lack of paying attention as the notifications on my phone were increasing over the week. This ended up taking forever!!! BUT the satisfaction that I actually knocked a bunch of them off my list was great.
After errands and work we went to eat at our favorite place with my brother and his family. Cafe Rio is the BEST place. Easy, fast, delicious, affordable...so many things I love about this place. Talking over Christmas lists and what the kids want this year, what the holiday plans are was fun. I love being with family. My brother is 10 years older than me but they have kids my kids ages and as you grow older that 10 years seems so insignificant. It's a strange twist since growing up he was out of the house by the time I was 8. Don't remember "growing up" with him but our kids will grow up side by side.
It's time to get off the computer, blast the Christmas music and put up the Christmas tree. One of my favorite nights of the year. Fun family times. That's where it's at.
Until next time
