Raise your hand if you like being sick on a Saturday especially when it’s the Saturday before Christmas!
Me either, but, sadly, I am.
My fabulous plans of meeting Jo for BODYPUMP this morning have been foiled by germs and I’m not a happy camper.
Are you all ready for Christmas?
This year is a bit different for me – I’m heading down to visit my mom from the 23-25 and will be back in Calgary, all by my lonesome for the remainder of the break. Also, we’re not really doing presents this year, which is….weird, but honestly, it’s also nice. I haven’t felt financially stressed nor have I felt stressed about needing to find the perfect gift for people, either.
I surely won’t be going to my mom’s empty handed as I’ll have bubby, wine, beer, red velvet cinnamon rolls and cranberry bliss bars among other things. Speaking of, I need to get to baking if I’m going to bring anything down with me!
