Turning point?

The shortest day of the year is behind us *and* I'm off work starting today until January 4th. Double Yay! I'm counting on this being a turning point...

Today I need to finish my Christmas shopping. But first, an appt with the electrician with regard to getting out backyard onto a timed drip system. The plants haven't been installed yet, but the hardscaping is coming along nicely. I was hoping this would be done by the end of the year, but it looks like it will take a bit longer.

My back has been problematic again. Which means I'm stalled on the push-up challenge and haven't been running. Blah. I'm not stressing over it though. With the days getting longer, my motivation and energy is sure to return, and my back should get better with a few more days rest.

Hope you all are well.!


  1. You're off for almost a year? LOL. I know you meant January 4th, and after 3:35 today, I will be off until then as well!

    Rest up and take care of your back!

    Happy Holidays!

  2. cold and gloomy is a huge demotivator!! Here's to sunnier and warmer days soon!

  3. I was going to say the same as teacherwoman, a whole year?! Lucky you! ha!

    As a fellow bad back sufferer, I feel you. Take it easy and do what you need to feel better.

  4. I was sitting on the floor wrapping gifts last night and when I got up I could barely stand up straight enough to walk. I thanked God I'm not one of those people that has a problem back. I hope it gets better quick and STAYS better. ;)

  5. Enjoy the time off! My kids are home a few extra days, so my last minute shopping totally went out the window.

  6. Enjoy all the time off. Hopefully your back will start cooperating so you can get back to the running and the push ups! Happy Holidays!

  7. Now that the days are getting longer it can only go uphill from here! IMHO!

    Hope you're feeling better soon and Happy Holidays!!

  8. this is my first year (of working, all 3 years i've been out of school) that i am taking 2 weeks off at the holidays! it has been awesome and a very nice break. i know you will enjoy your week+ of time off :)

    hope you are feeling better soon, esp your back!

    merry christmas!!
