Happy post-Thanksgiving Monday! How was everyone's holiday? I did indeed get off of work early on Wednesday, and had a great 5k run around my neighborhood. As much as a turkey trot sounds like fun, there are days that I just want to take it slow. I woke up around my normal week-day time, but I went back to sleep before waking up past 7. That did feel good, and I finished up my last dish before heading over for the meal. We had turkey, sweet potato casserole, creamed corn, stuffing, roasted Brussels sprouts (which I did not eat), deviled eggs, cranberry relish, rolls, bacon-wrapped sausages, and mac&cheese for the main meal. Yes, food coma. So many carbs, but I only had one plate. My strategy is to get a little bit of everything I'll eat, then see if I want seconds. I normally don't. Then we had ice cream and my pecan tassies for dessert.
Needless to say, I had a great meal, but I decided to skip Pure Barre and take is slow. I got to bed late, overindulged on everything, and I could still see my food baby. Oops. An 8:30 Pure Barre class was too ambitious for Black Friday. It was a late cancel, but I wouldn't have had a good class. I went back to bed, and felt normal around 9:30.
Since I skipped Pure Barre, I put my tree up earlier than planned. I wasn't sure what Allie would think since I had the tree at work last year. She hadn't seen a Christmas tree in 2 years, but she was also 2 years older, so would she be more mellow? Oh heck no! She had a ball checking things out when I put up the tree. She tried to climb it, she lunged into it, she played with the labels, and she pounced on the tree skirt/Run Disney heat sheet. She ran around the apartment so much, she crashed later on in the morning. It was so funny. I hope she got it out of her system at some point, but as of Sunday night, she still couldn't get enough. She even took a flying leap into it while I was making dinner.
Saturday I went to see Moana, and really enjoyed the movie. I'd love to buy the soundtrack, but I have to wait 3-5 business days. Unfortunately I had to cancel my credit card because of fraudulent charges on Saturday, so that old card is kaput, and I'm waiting on the new one. It's the holidays, and I know it's frequent, but this is the first time I've had fraud charges attempt to hit my account. I'm very careful too, but at least my bank understood. Once I get my new card, I'll get the soundtrack. Any of y'all see Moana yet?
Lastly, Sunday I headed out to Southlake one last time to have lunch with my cousin and her husband. One more day to have unhealthy food, but I did have veggies with dinner. Does that make up for what I ate? I didn't hit me until later last night that I'm moving in now less than 3 weeks, and I fought to keep it together. I started packing the kitchen too, because that's always a major project. I don't have the advantage either of driving a few miles down the road, so I have to pack EVERYTHING.
