Exactly one month from today, I will be heading home to PA to get ready to leave for mine and Darren’s vacation in Jamaica! After having it booking since February, I can’t believe it’s only a month away, so pumped. I’m even more pumped that after we get home, I don’t have to haul ass back down to Virginia and head back to work, and instead get to enjoy another 9 days at home. You can hate me, it’s ok. I would hate me if I wasn’t me. I suspect it’s going to be slightly challenging to pack for 8 days in the Caribbean and 9 days in Philadelphia in December all in one suitcase. I see a lot of shoes being needed.
Yesterday at work my computer was held captive by IT for 3 hours, so that was fun. With nothing else to do but sit and play angry birds, I dragged myself across the street for a workout. It was a typical Monday workout, which means I phoned it in on the elliptical for 35 minutes while watching House Hunters. Whatevs, better than nothing.
In other news, I am desperately trying to not get sick. For the past week I’ve woken up with a sore throat, and it is not cool. I got sick right around this time last year, post half-marathon, and am really trying to avoid being sick on Thanksgiving again.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, I’m looking forward to going home and hanging out with my sister for the long weekend. Specific things I’m excited for? Breaking Dawn Part 1 movie date with my sis (yeah, yeah Twilight, blah blah) but I’ve invested a lot of time in reading the books and watching the movies and I like them. Give me a break. Putting up Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving! With being preoccupied with packing and moving on the Saturday after Thanksgiving last year I didn’t get to do that with my sis, and it’s always one of my favorite days of the year. Turkey day in general, bring on the mashed potatoes and green bean casserole! Then obviously the fact that I’ll be home again 11 days later.
That reminds me, I need to make a Christmas wish list .
