After an incredibly busy day yesterday getting ready I am enjoying this moment to relax with a cup of coffee before the craziness begins.
This just in, the balloons will fly…yay!!!
Anyway…yesterday was a serious prepping day so I knew every minute counted which meant waking up 20 minutes before needing to be at work nearly sent me into a tail spin. Somehow (I swear teleportation must have been involved) I made it 2 minutes late which was pretty lucky.
I was able to work a half day and from 12:00 to 11 I…
- Baked Apple and Pumpkin Pie
- Baked Yeast Rolls
- Cleaned Kitchen and Living Room
- Did laundry
- Got my TB test read
- Took Scarlett to the vet
- Ran 7 miles
- 30 minute Nike Training Club Work out (sore butt this morning, let me tell you)
- Grocery shopped for last minute stuff
- Put up our Christmas Lights!! (will get a picture of these today)!
Crazy right, I am tired just thinking about it! Luckily though my head popped off the pillow this morning. I had dreams all night of everything that could go wrong. By the way, I am not sure if I mentioned this or not but I am making the full thanksgiving feast this year! This will be my first time ever!
Casey’s dad is coming over to make breakfast and we have a bunch of friends coming by for some morning festivities so I have been doing as much pre-cooking as I can to get out of his way when he gets here.
More importantly, I think it is important to think of all the things you are thankful for on this day (and really every day). I have so much to appreciate about my life. Love and support from friends and family in every aspect of my life, be it school or running or anything I decide to do. My beautiful puppy girl who we got a year ago today. For my legs that carry me through the beating I put on them each and every day! And also for the simple things like a roof over my head and food to eat each day.
To all my friends and family at home, I miss you and will be thinking of you especially today!
Off to peel some potatoes! HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL!
