The Good
- I'm officially off work for two weeks beginning Monday.
- I beat all the boys from my work team at Wii Boxing at a holiday party and thusly earned the title of "Wii Boxing Queen" for an afternoon.
- Appliance repair guy is coming to look at our non-functional oven this afternoon

The Bad
- Appliance repair guy needs to come look at our non-functional oven this afternoon.
- Still not done with Christmas shopping.

The Ugly
- Bandit was up until 1am in crazed-dog-mode. Very uncharacteristic behavior; could NOT get him to settle down and sleep. Concerned that he got into some candy or something. Hope he's okay.


  1. Any missing candy canes or tell-tale tooth marks on the Christmas tree? Hope Bandit is ok. Maybe he's just picking up on other people's stress/excitement about the holiday. Peace to you and your family!

  2. Today is my last day of work for two weeks, too. YAYYYYYY!

    I hope your pup is okay.

    Also, congrats on the boxing title!

  3. Go Wii Boxing Queen! Hope appliance repair guy has no problem fixing your oven (and that the repairs are not costly), and that Bandit is fine.

  4. All hail the Wii Boxing Queen!


  5. Let's hope Bandit was just having a little insomnia, eh...

    Boxing Queen... hee, hee...

  6. Congrats on the boxing title. But I bet I could take you in Wii boxing. :)

  7. Congrats to the boxing queen!

    Hope bandit is doing OK. :)

  8. I hope you don't have to go through the holidays without an oven! I had that happen 2 years in a row!

  9. Hey hope Bandit is OK!!! A sugar high perhaps???

    And yay on being WII boxing champ!!! You go girlie!!

  10. Well done, Wii Boxing Queen! That's awesome.

    Hope your oven will be in working order before the baking has to start. Or did you taper with it so you would get out of the cookie baking obligations? Tsk, tsk tsk! :-) Always a good way of saving a few kilos weight gain over the festive season ... :-)

    Have a great holiday!

  11. Congrats on being the champ on wii!!

    I'm still not done shopping. Hopefully this weekend....

  12. Oof! I hope bandit is ok :(

    Silly criters, not knowing what is good for them!

    Good luck finishing christmas shopping :)

  13. I am not surprised that you kicked butt in Wii Boxing. Not surprised at all, Your Majesty.


  14. Wii at the Christmas that's a good idea :-)

  15. Congrats on your new title. Did they get you a giant belt buckle as proof of your victory? ;) Hope the oven is working again!

  16. Hope Bandit is OK.

  17. Oh, I hope Bandit is OK!

    I beat everyone at a party once at Wii boxing too (including my husband 4 times!!) It was awesome! I didn't know how much I was going to get into it.

    Then I woke up the next day and felt like I had been hit by a Mack Truck on the right side of my body. I could barely lift my arm for a week! I was in more pain that after I ran this last marathon! LOL!

  18. Hope Bandit is doing better now and that you get a good night's sleep tonight. I know about the crazed-dog-mode - it took us awhile to figure out what was wrong with Albus the other night - turns out he ate a Christmas cookie with cinnamon candies.

  19. Enjoy your long vacay!

    Hope Bandit didn't get into something he wasn't supposed to!

  20. I hope that the dog is OK. I'll watch out for your right cross!! LOL!! I'm off for two weeks too. It's going to be great!! Are you going anywhere?

  21. Way to pull out an AG award at the Jingle Bell 5K!
    Those are some good goals for 2009, I wish you the best of luck!
    You are just full of car drama…Hope everything is fixed now.
    That is the perfect gym queen workout journal.

    I hope the oven is fixed! Good luck with the Christmas shopping…I have to finish mine today. I just have a few small things to get. Now that I just read all of December’s posts from you I better get back to work. 

    Have a happy holidays!

  22. Wii games can be a great workout!!
