This morning, I was up at 6:00, and the kids had spent the night at my parents' house, so it would have been perfect to go out for my run; but I just laid in bed reading for a while, and then dressed and headed outside. I had four miles on the schedule this morning, so I did my favorite out-and-back route. It was completely uneventful.
After writing that post about the NuNaturals giveaway yesterday, I was really craving the berry protein shake I posted about. So that's what I ended up having for breakfast. I spent some time knitting after breakfast--I used to knit all the time, but have gotten away from it ever since I started this blog (probably because all of my spare time goes to the blog!)
I'm making a wine tote, something I've made quite a few of for the women in my wine club. This is a picture of Renee's and mine:
This afternoon, I had to go get a couple of last minute Christmas presents--Jerry's and two more for Noah. And unfortunately, I had to take the kids with me, so I had to be very sneaky about getting Noah's presents without him seeing. The kids wanted to look at video games, so while they were looking, I chose two Kinect games for Noah (Wipe Out, and Minute to Win It, both games that I think he will like). I managed to pay for them and get them home without him seeing them. I also got a few gifts for Jerry, but since he reads my blog sometimes, I can't write about what they are.
I wrote a post last year that may hit home for some people this time of year, so today I posted the link on Twitter and Facebook; here is a link to the post if you missed it. It's about getting started now with healthy lifestyle changes, instead of waiting until the new year (or whatever other day). It's one of my favorite posts that I've written.
I'm super excited that Jerry is off work tomorrow and on Christmas. It's been a long time since he's had Christmas off! I'm not sure what we're going to do, but it will be nice to be able to spend it together :)

It's from Christmas 2009.
