Team building holiday party for my department of 18 at work today. We met for breakfast at 9 and had a white elephant gift exchange. We then went and watched a movie at 11. After the movie we were free to leave. NICE.

Had plans to run this evening with April, but it was cold (for San Diego), dark, and raining. I had a made chicken chili in the crock pot and corn bread in the morning. We decided to skip the run and just eat. :-)

Have a hair appt down in Littleton at 10:30, so I'm going to head down the hill after I drop the kids at school, and try to knock out the last of my Christmas shopping while I'm down there. Hopefully I'll be back here in time to ride my fatbike before I pick them up from school. Looks like I'm going to be light on studio time this week, which kind of sucks, but I at least have a bit of inventory. 
The rest of this week is going to be insane. Tomorrow night I have a jersey try-on party for Dirt Divas, Thursday is Nate's Christmas party for his company, Friday we're taking the kids to the Nutcracker, Saturday night is another party with a bunch of friends. I'm going to hate people by the time I wake up on Sunday!! ;)
I downloaded a new photo app for my phone a couple months ago, and it has a self timer and the option to take more than one exposure in a row. I remembered it while I was futzing around with my phone during my ride, and took a few pictures with it. I'm actually pr[...]

Woke up in the night to see DS laying next to me. He is a heavy breather and then I kept thinking about lice again. Let's just say, not a good night for sleep! Took him to the health department first thing this morning just to be sure - all clear. Whew.

On with the day! Best news of the day, no rob your neighbor gift exchange for my side of the family. Woo Hoo! Sounds mean probably, it's not about the gift. I would just rather visit with everyone and play a game or something. We've done this for a long time so it's run it's course. And one less thing I have to shop for although I actually already bought this gift.
DS's school Christmas Concert was tonight. It was fine. He hates it I guess and was in a really bad mood all night and last night. Hopefully now that it is over he will lighten up a little although we still have piano recital coming up this week for him to stress himself out about!

A bit frustrated with my weight. It's will go up and down a pound or so, but not really budging from that small range. After 2 solid weeks of barely any carbs and upping my workouts I expected more. I am still more than 10 pounds heavier than I was a year ago.

got a last lil run in. Ran the road and to the mountain. Goodness gracious, it is so gorgeous! I will miss seeing all that beauty every day!

Hit costco after an easy flight back, and of course life and chaos were waiting for us at home. It was lovely while it lasted, but I'm glad to be home with my fluffs, and babies.

I totally blame the enabler!! 
The alarm was set for 6am... and went off at 6am... but there was no actual getting up at 6am.  Which is ok - with all the stupid stress going on in my life right now, I should just sleep if my body wants me to sleep.  
The latest in my life is that I got a super fun envelope at work yesterday afternoon... a subpoena to appear between Dec. 16-19th as a witness in the Supreme Court of British Columbia!  Yay.  This relates to a case that I last worked on in 2009 as a case that was a bankruptcy that had already lasted for 10 years and was turning into a criminal case.  ARGH!
I contacted my old law firm to let them know what was what and they already turned the subpoena over to the crown counsel in the hopes that because I'm in another country, I'll be exempt from having to show up.  Especially since I'm really only able to go if someone else wants to foot the bill for it.  I mean, I'd LOVE to go back to Vancouv[...]

The body is such a mystery. I lost 3 pounds overnight!? Flushing out the salts etc? Probably water though I woke feeling really hydrated for a change.
I also stole and inhaled two of hubby's (made by my MIL) spring rolls because she rarely makes them, they are DEEElish  and I couldn't resist.  Brought my total up to 1800 calories.

Slept like crap.  Don't remember turning off the alarm this morning, but clearly I did because I didn't get up on the bike.  I have that to look forward to this evening.

Temp was 45 with a feels like 36 this morning, with a lot of west wind and mist. It was not bad weather to run in.

I have just a few Christmas gifts still to purchase and am waiting on some from Amazon. Now to get everything wrapped...
