Over Two Months...

Since I've updated. My how time flies. Its been a bit busy around here. Still remodeling, 3 rooms completed and now we are on hold due to the Holidays. Still doing Callanetics, can you believe I've kept this up for 10 weeks which by the way is only equal to 10 hours of these exercises. Sounds bad but they are not easy and yet I still enjoy doing them, maybe I should have been a ballerina....just kidding. I divided the hour up into 4 parts (which the book suggest for beginners) and I have been doing 1 part 4 times a week. This takes me anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour each time, therefore I've really completed 30 to 40 hours of exercise. The books says "10 Years Younger in 10 Hours". Its working folks, I can't say that I look or feel 10 years younger but I do feel better and compliments from the husband are very helpful. : ) Now that I've completed the 10 Hour Plan, I'll move on to the 15 Minute Maintenance Plan. I'll see how it goes and if I'm not happy with the results I'll switch back to the 10 Hour Plan after the Holidays. OK! enough about my exercising but as you can see I'm pretty happy with myself for sticking with the plan.
Thanksgiving was spent with a few family members, it was awesome having them over, its been way to long since we've all been together.
Other news, I am now working 4 days a week instead of 5 and loving it. Its amazing how much I can get done with one extra day at home. It makes for some real nice weekends. We are training a new girl at work as I am preparing for retirement in 19 short months. After the first of the year I may only be working 3 days a week, more spare time, what shall I do? : )
The husband and I went shopping today for a few more Christmas decorations and can you believe that the stores are already breaking down their Christmas displays...seems a bit early to me. We did settle for a couple of items but not the ones we were shopping for. : (
Next weekend I'm having the girls in the family over for a Christmas get together. We always do a craft together, this year we will be making fabric flowers. My daughter and I have 3 different types in mind and we are thinking that each girl can make a couple to take home. We'll be having some snacks, some laughs and of course I'll be wearing my Christmas shoes, just for you Charlie. : )
How's your Christmas shopping going? What's on you list this year? Me, I'm a little over half done with my shopping and hope to finish up on Friday while enjoying my day off. : )  My list includes some new perfume (Chanel No.5, its his fault), a gold chain necklace, new cookware and a couple of surprises. You'd better get busy people, 23 more Days til Christmas!!!

P.S. If you are a Rod Stewart fan. Run...don't walk to the store and pick up his new Christmas CD Merry Christmas, Baby. I LOVE it and have listened to it every single day since Thanksgiving! I believe you will too!
