Good Morning and Happy December 24!
**Sorry if you saw this for a brief 1 hour yesterday… didn’t mean to publish it then!!
I had the 1st of 3 Family Christmas celebrations this past weekend!
On my mom’s side, we got together early (rather than all 3 on the 25th like we used to do!) because my Aunt was in town–she hasn’t been in town for years and years… so it was a real treat 🙂
We had lots of yummy dinners out and home-cooked meals in, moments of laughter so intense no one could speak, and the little fighting and bickering between family members that I actually kind of love and am thankful for every day 🙂
My Best Friend (aka Sister) is home and life is wonderful again!
Some running occurred as well. I have a post to really recap what my running has been lately since it has been all over the place, I have kind of been taking it easy, but also have this drive/competitiveness within me that prevents me from ever really taking it easy ((which is one of my most worst faults in my opinion.) But I had a great run with my dad and a friend– an easy 5 miles. And I do mean easy. Very fun 🙂
I am looking forward to running on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We ALWAYS run on big holidays. It is like our way of celebrating. That is the one sure and sane thing that we do and has become a tradition. I am not sure where or what we will run…but I am looking forward to doing it none-the-less 🙂
I have more shopping to do today with my sister and dad for our mom– for some reason she is so difficult to buy for!!
Have a great day everyone and I pray it is full of merriment!
Do you run on important holidays or purposefully take it off?
Christmases all on one day, or spread them out?
