Monday Musings 11/28

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.


Linking up with Hoho Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for Weekend Wrap-up.

  1. I felt kind of yucky on Black Friday too--food hangover?

    1. I'll go with that. I don't eat like that except on Thanksgiving, so it's OK.

  2. When I move, even if I am HAPPY to move, it is sad seeing things bare. For instance, I was always very homesick at college, so when the end of the year arrived, I was very happy to be moving back home. But packing up my dorm room would give me a horrible feeling. I don't like change, but obviously you can't pack it all on the day you are leaving!

    1. I'm excited about the move, but starting to clean things out was another reminder this is happening. I've been in Texas almost 8 years.

  3. I ran much later on the days I was off. It was a nice change. I remember last year you put your tree in your office, right? I bet Allie is both confused and having fun. Do you know my credit card has been compromised three times this year? It's so aggravating but I guess I should be grateful someone is watching out for me (thank you Chase!). Thanks for linking Lesley!

    1. Yes, the tree was in the office because I wanted to see my ornaments. No ornaments (again) this year.

  4. Im glad you were able to sleep in a relax a bit over Thanksgiving weekend! I don't think I would have wanted to go to a Pure Barre class the morning after Thanksgiving either.

    1. I could've been fine going to the later class, but I started putting together the tree instead.
