Wow, time is just flying by. Hard to believe that Christmas is only 3 sleeps away. My co-worker is back to work as well, which means I am back to part time. It's weird because even though I have been tired and mega busy over the four months he was away, always dreaming of the day I would go back to part time, I find part of myself disappointed with actually achieving it. I have no idea why. What will I do with all my extra time? Not to mention smaller pay days! Oh right, maybe I can spend my extra time recovering from workouts properly and getting all of the things that I have put off for 4 months finally done! 

I am still running. Things are going ahead as plan, though I still have to keep my eye on a few things that keep reminding me that they are there. I also must say that I am tired of these short days and long nights. Thank goodness we have crossed over and will slowly begin to see more daylight. Running in the dark is not my ideal choice; however, thankfully the Saucony ViziPro line is wonderful. I have no doubt that people can see me in my ViziPro Orange jacket or vest in the dark. I highly recommend purchasing this line of clothing if you do a lot of running in the dark.

Christmas is 3 sleeps away and I have finished my shopping or well I thought I did. Until I found out I have to pick up a few more things. Put me in a mall anywhere near Christmas and it is an ugly sight. The only time I turn into a big BAH HUMBUG is when I am Christmas shopping. Definitely not a fan! I also have one gift that I am waiting for in the mail.... which means it has only 1 day left to arrive. I have my fingers crossed that it does or someone will be left without a gift. Please deliver tomorrow CanPar!  

Anyways I just wanted to let you all know that I am alive. I have a few posts in mind, but will keep those for later in the year (yes I know there isn't much left). Wish my luck with my last minute shopping tomorrow!

Merry Christmas (or Happy whatever you celebrate) everyone!
