Well, the plan was to sleep in...but I think I'm still in wake up and work mode. It's ok - feels good to be able to be up by myself and take my time doing my routine and start winding down mentally.
Did 40 sit-ups this morning instead of my usual 20, I could really feel it in my abs...reminded me of when I was a kid, trying to gain acceptance and I'd always over do and then there would be consequences later. This one time, I think I was around 12 and I was at the karate school I took lessons at and a few of us younger boys were having a sit-up contest....I didn't win, but I think I did like 200+ crunches. I could not move for 2 days...I remember my Mom & Dad laughing, not at me but just a general laugh....So this morning I stopped at 40. I'm getting a little wiser with age I guess...
Yesterday was a really good day, my wife and I have been able to sneak in a few afternoon movies on the new 55" tv. On tuesday we watched "Public Enemy" with Johnny Depp...parts of it were filmed here in Wisconsin - great movie. We also watched "Night at the Museum 2" yesterday - cute family/kid film...but super cool on a big lcd tv with good speakers.
I helped finish up some last minute cookie decorating, stuff for my family that is coming on friday. No problem so far this season with eating treats or being tempted. I've been chewing alot more Copenhagen though, that's for sure. I know it's a disgusting addiction, bad for me, more expensive than a small mortgage every month...but one thing at a time. It's on the list to change...
Most of the gifts I bought for my wife arrived yesterday (thanks UPS dude), not too much this year, we are both watching our money and we don't need anything. But anyway, she figured out everything I got her - I'm terrible at not telling...so I'll wrap a few for her to open, but she got most of it last night straight out of the box.
I love her so much and could not imagine my life without her, I'm a very lucky guy.
I really hope everyone can take a little time to pause and realize everything that we do have in our lives and how fortunate we all truly are. I want all the people in the world that are struggling to just hang in there, things can change!
Pretty decent storm here in Madison, WI...so it's going to be a perfect Christmas Eve
Thank you to my Spark Friends, I could not be where I'm at without you!
