I think it’s the law that the WiFi in your childhood home has to, has to, be incredibly horrid, so I’m blogging a little late from the McDonald’s a few minutes from the border of South Carolina.
I’m avoiding eye contact with like 4 youths who’ve taken an interest in me, and seem to be trying to catch my attention. I’m wearing my headphones and pretending I can’t hear them – but nothing is really playing.
But I digress.
I hope your Christmas, or whatever you celebrate, was wonderful. Mine was really really nice.
I started with some Redbox action with my brother upon my arrival. We watched that Melissa McCarthy/Sandra Bullock cop movie, ‘The Heat’, which I was totally sure was gonna be hysterical, but it was honestly a little off-putting. There wasn’t a minute in the movie that you didn’t hear the f-word. Now don’t get me wrong, I totally live for some some dirty language, but it was really too much for my delicate sensibilities.
Christmas Day, I woke up, and once we got everyone up, we started opening presents. The fan fave? This:
The Soda Stream! My pops, like me, is a huge fan of some seltzer, and we got into making a few glasses before we even started breakfast. My dad kept looking at his glass and saying, “This is amazing!”
So I’m pretty sure I went with the right choice.
So knowing that I’d be probably indulging in a few more cookies than I usually do, I made sure to hit the run in some way, shape, or form a few times while here at home. So when I was sent out for our Christmas dinner, some key Chinese dishes (veggie lo mein, sesame chicken for my brother, and general tso’s chicken for my dad), I put in the order, and left the restaurant on foot to make sure that I wouldn’t make an excuse to skip my run. I ran around the back of the building….and right onto a golf course.
Seriously. I ran, and found myself on a golf course, and it almost looked like another planet, with the amount of balls (hee hee) that were back there.
Like, doesn’t that look just like Mars or something? So my quick run turned into one that was a little longer, around a local golf course as the sun went down.
As predicted, I ate a few more cookies than I planned to before I went to bed last night and watched some Sherlock Holmes with my brother, so this morning, I hit it again, with some time on the treadmill, followed by some time spent with weights.
Some of today’s highlights?
- I got to be lazy, aside from my workout, which was fabulous.
- I used the Starbucks gift card that my mom got me!
- I went to the Whole Foods in Charlotte, and they have a wine bar there. A glass was on special for like $3.00, so of freaking course I indulged! I also walked around, picked some produce with my mom, ate lunch from the hot bar, and got some handmade soap, which is super spensive, but awesome.
- And I found my wedding dress today! I’m keeping it super secret, otherwise, I’d post a little pictorial evidence for you.
So onword and upword! Next up! New Years!
What are your New Years plans? Any running related ones?
