It's been a busy weekend -- Friday night was our office Christmas party. There was a trivia night involved, but we opted to just have dinner. It was nice. Steve and I are in our mid 50s and we commented how we are now the old people at these parties.

Saturday night was another holiday party at Steve's aunt's place. It was ok. I'm kind of ready for the holidays to be over with and haven't really made a dent in Christmas shopping. It feels a little overwhelming this year for some reason.

Leadership training at church today.  Will be back late cause I still have to do the 21DFX Dirty 30.
One of the Campus Pastors from the Richmond campus hadn't seen me in a while....he used to be a personal trainer.  He noticed that I had lost weight....yay, the (almost) 15 pounds show--definitely more muscle and less fat on the bod.  
Stopped & got a manicure on my way home from the meeting, then put away laundry and went grocery shopping.  I ate some leftover soup for dinner while I put the groceries away.  Now it's time to start cleaning.

New Canopy and Crane bedding arrived. Love it. No more blanket, sloppy king cases or top sheet!

Date night with Jo and Bill to celebrate Jo's bday! I hope she likes her little present I got her. Should be fun night!

I'm not gonna lie - I'll ride my bike in any weather, cold or snow, but I'm sort of sick of riding in cold wind this week. Have a three hour ride on the schedule today, and I'm going to head down the hill to ride with Megan. Figure it will be more tolerable if I ride with someone, and if I head down to where it might be 10 degrees warmer than it is up here! We're waiting until 1:00, so we get the warmest weather. Sun's out, so there's that! 
In the meantime, painting while Owen hangs out in the playroom. Win.

Work has been CRAZY. We deployed new laptops and the number of help desk calls have skyrocketed (no surprise there). I probably spend 75% of my day talking to users and troubleshooting problems and explaining the new stuff. It isn't awful, by any means, but it's a switch from my usual. And it's DRAINING for me. I get home and I practically melt into the couch. 
I have a long weekend ahead of me -- Monday through Wednesday are vacation days for me (use 'em or lose 'em). Nothing too special going on except Wednesday, when I'm taking my parents to see Hamilton (!!!!) which I'm totally excited about.
I wish the sun would come out. The cold weather is expected -- it *is* December -- but the sun would make it so much easier to take.

Leg felt better today so I thought I would try the bike.  We'll see how it feels later, but I did sweat chlorine from all the swimming.

No workout other than lifting a bunch of boxes during the move.
Finally moved into my own place. Excited to get the squat rack set up in the garage. Been doing all my lifts from the floor for awhile now

Such a crazy week but somehow we still made good progress in spite of our web crashing amongst other things. Lots of drama with my team which finally came to head when I learned of some bad behavior by employee that put us at great risk even though I had given warnings about just that and so I dismissed her yesterday. It leaves me in an almost desperate situation but keeping her on was false comfort. She was getting paid to do nothing and there was too much risk. So that means it'll be even more insanely busy for the remainder of the year. No clue what I'll do in January when I'm supposed to be on holidays!!?

And in other news... Double our pleasure!!

Kind of lazy night. I was going to walk on the treadmill but just curled up with Bentley instead.
