Well, I was doing great following Weight Watchers again until a 5 pound box of chocolate showed up at work. I’ve been a disaster the past week. I need to just throw that stupid thing out. I am now telling myself after the holidays I am for real getting back on track. I kind of have to now; I signed up to run a marathon in April. The weird part is I was sober when I signed up. Regardless, I’m excited and I am running as part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training. This is a great cause and I hope that everyone reading this can find an extra $5 , or whatever you can spare, during this holiday season to donate and help me reach my goal of raising $1,600 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. You can make your donations at: http://pages.teamintraining.org/nc/rnrrlegh14/toreyschaefer
Thank you in advance!
As for my holiday preparations, I don’t really have much to do in the first place so I am way ahead. My family isn’t much for getting together or exchanging gifts so I have bought the necessary cards (I swear I am putting them in the mail tomorrow) and wrapped my cat’s presents. Christmas Eve night we will be joining Victor’s family for a fiesta de Navidad. We are scheduled to go to my dad’s Christmas morning at 10 am to give the boys their gifts and spend some time with them but, I see that ending approximately around 10:07 am, if it even happens.
Otherwise, my life has been creeping along at a steady pace. I did read book I really liked the other day. I couldn’t put it down; I read it in less than a day. That usually doesn’t happen. The book is called Lie Still by Julie Heaberlin. The book follows a woman as she deals with the lingering effects of a date rape that happened to her in college and the subsequent murder of the date rapist . It is not an overly serious book; the topic is presented in a palatable manner. I highly recommend it.
I hope everyone has a happy holiday and I will leave you with some pictures from our vacation to Asheville and the Biltmore Estate.
