Reality bitch slapped me in the face this morning when the alarm went off at 5:15am. Ten days off work is just long enough to get out of the routine of rising early and into the routine of staying in my pj's until 10:00am while leisurely consuming large quantities of coffee. The funny thing is, by tomorrow it will feel as though the holidays happened months ago.
I did not post nearly as much as I thought I would over the holidays. I didn't do alot of things over the holidays, which was just what I was hoping for. I'm not too worried about it. I did lots of other fun things.
I spent three evenings with three seperate groups of friends. I love my friends, they truly are my family and they fill my heart and life in so many ways.
Two hour full body massage - a hostess gift from one of the friends who attended my little soiree on the 23rd. It was orgasmic.....ok not entirely...but damn it was good. My body was putty by the end of the massage. The massage therapist commented that my hips were really tight - I told her it was a direct result of sitting on my ass all day perfecting my ass groove.
Read three books. None really worth mentioning here, they were ok but not blogworthy.
Spent an evening at my bro's house watching Titanic with sister in law while Nora and my two nephews played hide and go seek for two hours. This is a bit of an accomplishment because after 20 minutes of screaming boys and a barking dog, I'm ready to hightail it the hell outta there. The boys had gotten Wii for Christmas which all three played for about an hour until Nora suggested hide and go seek. Their squeals of delight as Nora found them in various hiding places through out the house were much nicer to listen to then the arguments over the Wii controllers.
Watched season 8 of Smallville and season 6 of One Tree Hill (one of Nora's xmas presents). Love me some tv in dvd format.
Nora and I went to see Blind Side.
Spent an entire uninterrupted week (aka no school) with my kids. Normally, by the end of such a venture I'd be screaming for prozac and guzzling wine by the box. A funny thing is taking place though, my kids are growing up. Monty will be 18 in April. How did this happen? How is it possible that I'm the mother of an 18 year old boyman? I'm still 25 right? Huh...it just doesn't seem possible. The boys were content to play with their video games, eat their weight in food on a daily basis and generally bum around the house. There were days when they didn't get dressed. Nora was quite happily stuck by my side all week. I treasure this time with her because I know in the not too distant future, the very sight of me will send her into a hormonally-induced rage. Poor Jimmy almost cried last night when he realized it was Sunday and he would have to return to the grind today.
So that's the highlight recap of the holidays.
If you haven't done so yet, check out the new blog Lose It, Bitches created by the fabulous Ms. Zgirl. I (along with several other awesome women) will be contributing to the site on a regular basis.
Last but not least, the gym bag is packed and ipod is charged in preparation for my foray back to the gym this evening. I'm hoping for 40 minutes on the treadmill. My lax muscles, that have not done anything more strenuous than hauling my ass to the fridge in over 2 years, may dispute that goal.
