For the first time in years Ryan and I decorated for Christmas. The past couple years we put up the bare minimum for Christmas. Which meant we put up the Leg Lamp and the Christmas Story village. This year we put up the stockings, the tree, even dug out some Christmas rugs and a wreath. We even broke my rule of putting it all up before Thanksgiving!
It was a good thing we decorated early because it never would have gotten done as I worked crazy hours and did tons of baking.
And then for the first time ever, I got sick for Christmas. Even though I got a flu shot, I still got the flu. I heard it was bad this year but I think I underestimated how bad it was as I was suddenly glued to the couch for days. I think I reached a point where I was so sick I didn’t think I’d ever get over it and would never run again.
It took me a whole week to get back to working out and it was a very slow start back to running.
Since I was still recovering from the flu for New Years, we decided to have a very low key New Years Eve. We went to dinner at Cork & Cleaver, where I think I had the best meal of 2014. It was amazing and then came home and struggled to stay up to midnight. It was a tough call but I barely made it.
I have to recommend on New Years at midnight, turn on the police scanner and listen to some of the craziness in your area. I was cracking up at some of the things going on.
Happy New Year! I can’t wait to share with you all my crazy plans for 2015!
