Five More Sleeps

Rob had to stay an extra week, ugh!  It will have been three weeks by the time he returns on Friday.  It's been a long haul and I've had to fight hard not to get too depressed.  I won't lie to you and say there hasn't been more than a little self-medicating with food but I've also been juicing and eating my fruits and veggies every day and out on a good daily (sometimes twice) walk with Tally.

I've decked the halls and trimmed the trees, did the holiday shopping and just finished setting up the luminaries for tonight's annual lighting up of the neighborhood.  But I feel like it's just going through the motions without Rob here to share it with me.  It's also a freakishly warm 70 degrees here, the chill that is so welcome after a long Georgia summer is definitely missed.  

 I've been scanning cookie recipes but I don't even feel like baking.  I'm sure this funk will lift when Rob returns home.  How are your winter holiday preparations going?

  1. Bummer about Rob's delay. Decorating is as much fun without someone to share it with.

    I am just about done with shopping. One niece left and stocking stuffers for John. Decorating finished today. Now we are planning our menu for the big Christmas eve dinner.
