Happy Friday! I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas.
I have been sick with a bad cold since Monday. When I woke up that morning I knew I wasn’t feeling great but I didn’t really have too much time to dwell on it. By Christmas Eve, I was completely stuffed up and I was having a hard time breathing through my nose but, I pushed through. I ran both Monday and Tuesday and by Christmas morning I was toast, which seriously sucked, because look what the Kid got me:
Uh, that’s the GARMIN FORERUNNER 620 BAYBEE! Yeah, I know. I have the best kid ever!
I didn’t get to run on Christmas and the day after I was so excited to try out the new Garmin but I had forgotten to charge it after playing with it on Christmas and the battery was dead. I’m ending the year on such a good note, right? Finally this morning I got to use it, and it is the coolest thing ever!
I have a lot of learning to do just to get used to it, but I already know I’m gonna love it.
Unfortunately I probably won’t be using it again for quite a while because MacGyver has decided to drag me off to the cabin until the New Year. You may remember this post where I told you a little about the cabin we built. We still aren’t finished with it, in fact, we aren’t even close and we need to get it finished because if I let MacGyver leave something half finished for too long, it won’t get finished in this decade. (See: Kitchen Backsplash 10 years, 2 months)
Unfortunately, I just don’t want to go. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like the cabin it’s just that going to a Cabin with no electricity, no running water and a bathroom located down a dirt path leading to a large hole in the ground, which may or may not be infested with venomous snakes, is not exactly the perfect place for me to go when I’m so sick I don’t even mind that MacGyver’s dirty socks are laying on the coffee table. Besides, if you’ve ever read more than 2 or 3 post on this blog, you know about my encounters with exotic and wild animals. It’s a little freaky. Want a little proof? Here is the latest bird to take up residence in my backyard and apparently, he likes the firepit.
I WAS going to burn all of our wrapping paper and make a little fire but the new bird had other ideas and screeched so flippin loud he almost burst my ear drum.
Anyway, about the Cabin….MacGyver wanted to leave today but I am finding all kinds of creative ways to delay the trip. Today I made it rain. Okay, not actually, but since it did rain, I convinced him that there was no way we could get any work done in the rain and he agreed, thankfully. I’ve got tomorrow covered by conspicuously placing an ad for a Saturday auction on the top of his desk because he can never miss a good auction. I’m currently working on Sunday’s delay.
Anyway, that’s my week.
So, how was your Christmas? What’s the best present that you got? Do you have any plans to celebrate the New Year?
