I had to work Monday but the bosses surprised us & closed the office at 3:00. Since I was home early I went for a run. I wasn't sure how far I'd go but I felt good so I did 8 miles. I needed to burn some calories considering all the junk I ate Sunday!
For the first time in 18 years (except for when Christmas fell on a Saturday) I was off on Christmas Eve. It was glorious!!! Dean & I actually got up early & went to the mall. Crazy I know! I was able to get some cute slippers on sale, Starbucks & stock up at Bath & Body Works for the next year! What's crazier than the fact that we went to the mall on Christmas Eve? The way I looked. I got out of bed & put a sweatshirt over my t-shirt, I had slept in yoga pants & I put a hat on & left. It was awesome! Now I know what it's like to be a guy or a college kid.
We went to Christmas Eve Mass & then came home & Dean grilled steaks before the big pajama party. All of the neighbor crew went to Dennis & Jackie's in our pj's & we did the White Elephant Game. There were funny gifts & really stupid gifts. It was hilarious! I lucked out being last & got a Caliente gift card!
Christmas Day our families come to our house. We had way too much food as usual & too many presents!
Here I go capturing weird expressions again.
Logan was hilarious! Everything he opened was "Ohhh, I wanted this". Christmas is so fun with kids.

For the first time in many years I'm ready to get my Christmas stuff down & get back to normal. I need my routine. I'm not good being all willy nilly running around without a plan. I took the first step this morning. I got up early & ran 4 miles before work. Now if I can just get the eating back under control......
