So, Christmas is over. I never really got into the Christmas spirit this year. No family plus no time off of work plus 80 degree weather equals any other weekend where I binge eat and drink. I had a nice weekend and all, it just didn’t seem like Christmas. I’m already making plans to enjoy next Christmas by eliminating some stress. I hearby declare Christmas 2012 “Year of the Gift Card.” If I buy you a gift, expect one of those. No one is excluded.
By the way, that’s still the same Macaroni Grill gift card that hubs and I tried to use but failed. Is there a rule on re-gifting gift cards that look like they were stuck to the bottom of your shoe all night?
Anyway, yesterday at work, everyone decided to notice that my hair is darker. Two people even told me that they barely recognized me, which is interesting because my hair has been this color for over a month. It’s not like I was seeing these people for the first time or suddenly wearing a disguise.
Either way, not people you want to be playing Memory with. (Anyone remember that game?)
After work, hubs and I met our trainer for a Crossfit workout.
4 sets of:
- 50 lunges holding a dumbbell overhead
- 50 squats holding a PVC pipe overhead
- 100 jump ropes
That took us about 30 minutes. It was a little easy compared to his other workouts but I didn’t really mind since I was pretty sore from a workout on Monday.
When we got home, I noticed a gigantic stuffed pig sitting on the curb two houses down. No one was around and he was just laying there all sad and alone. Calling for me.
My GOD I’ve never wanted a stuffed pig so bad. Just look at that face. Our neighbors were trying to figure out who’s pig it was and moved him off the curb so people wouldn’t think he was trash. I guess he had been outside all day and now he’s laying on our neighbor’s lawn with no one to love him. And yes, I have decided that pig is a boy. And if he’s there when I get home tonight, expect to see a stuffed pig photo shoot blog post.
