Holiday season off to a good start!

Thanksgiving was a wonderful day here at our house. James cooked and the food was ready by noon. We all sat at the table and enjoyed wonderful food and being together as a family. I can’t remember the last time I had a day that I was able to enjoy without thinking of my to do list. I still managed to hit Walgreens as soon as they opened, Walmart for their 8:00 pm sale and Target at 9:00 pm.

Black Friday took us to JCPenney’s, Dillards, PetSmart and Justice.  What I wasn’t able to get at the stores I was able to get online….Amazon, Overstock and Best Buy.

We put up our tree, but since Boo Boo loves climbing the tree, I can only put plastic ornaments up 😦 I have some beautiful glass and ceramic ornaments that I have collected through the years – but they aren’t going on my tree.

Healthwise – I gained two – yes, two pounds my first week at my new job – everyone brings in sweets every day…I need to learn how to control myself!  Then to top it off – my runs have been horrible – just can’t find my pace.  But at least I am out there hitting the pavement.


Finally Having Fun!

Breaking Dawn Part 2 – what a great movie! If you are a Twilight fan. Went with Desi and some friends from my old job. We all loved it! We went to the 10:30 am showing on Saturday – nice and empty. There were laughs and tears and we thoroughly enjoyed the movie….can’t wait for the DVD to come out so I can enjoy it at home. After the movie we went out for some Cuban food to celebrate Mary’s birthday – some more friends (they are not Twilight fans) and we had some lechon with rice and beans and sweet plaintains – yummy!!!

So yes, this was a week of food – Sunday morning instead of dying my hair – I went for my run – I was supposed to do 6 miles – but came short at 5.65 miles – I was able to maintain a 12 ish minute pace, which made me happy.

An old high school friend invited me to an arts and crafts show where she was selling hair bows – Ava likes them (every once in a blue moon) so we went – it was so nice to see her after 28 years – she looks the same. I still can’t believe how many people from West New York have moved down to South Florida. We quickly caught up and I found a couple of cute bows and asked her to make some for Ava.

Rest of my Sunday was spent doing laundry, grocery shopping and watching Twilight….pretty good weekend!


Survived First Week

What a looonnggg week!

I prepared myself mentally for my new 30 mile commute to work – good news its a holiday!  Light traffic!!!

Last week the owner of the company I used to work at passed away, so services were on Monday night and Tuesday night. This was the first time I had been to a Catholic church since we moved down from NJ. The architecture was very modern – made me miss up north and my little church that I grew up in.

The rest of the week wasn’t too bad. A birthday lunch for my boss, an international potluck lunch and a welcome lunch for me – I haven’t eat so much food in so long! I am missing working out at lunch and I was only able to run on Thursday, as on Tuesday, Ava wanted to join me and we ended up walking around the block.  I have to find a way to get more exercise into my day….

Looking forward seeing Twilight Breaking Dawn 2 with my friends and a fairly quiet weekend!


New Old Job

Today I started a new job….I went back to work with my old company.  I am saddened that it didn’t work out, but I do believe things happen for a reason. I will miss my friends that I made in the past three years – definitely will keep in touch with them! Am going to miss the gym and working out at lunchtime, and the short drive to work. Looking at the positive side of things – now I HAVE to run after work – so that means more pavement time 🙂
