Today is the best Monday I’ve had in a while, mainly because it doesn’t feel like a Monday. That’s what being on vacation does to you :) Oh, and the fact that Christmas is just a few days away doesn’t hurt the cause.
My time at home so far has been all sorts of marvelous. Simple and low-key, but just what I’ve needed and wanted.
Lately, I’ve been…
Eating to my heart’s content. Food has been plentiful and more delicious than I’m used to at school. It’s nice having a stocked fridge and enough food for extra servings at dinner. My mom made a roast pork with a fig balsamic dressing one night and it was incredible!
Spending quality time with my family. We wore matching Christmas pajamas and watched Elf on Saturday. Pretty perfect (albeit stereotypical) holiday night.
Feeling extra grateful. I received a Christmas gift from KIND along with a sweet note. I will be making this my new toiletry travel bag! Along with that, I had a fun dinner with a big group of high school friends and even after months apart we still clicked. I feel very lucky and fortunate for the people in my life.
Being lazy on the couch. I’ve enjoyed downtime with my dog and have had little motivation to do much else. I did catch up on some reading and I finally re-organized the documents on my computer…but that didn’t need much moving around!
Exercising…a little bit. I went for a longer than normal run (8 miles) with my dad yesterday in preparation for our upcoming half marathon. We followed it up with sitting on the couch, eating and watching football all day (perfect balance, right?). I’m welcoming this time and just doing what feels right. I do feel better with some movement most days, but I’m not pushing anything.
On tap for this week: lunch with friends, Christmas Eve mass and dinner in Orlando with family, Christmas Day at home, and that. is. it. Oh- and more naps and Netflix watching will probably happen.
How was your weekend?
What are your plans for the holidays?
