Quick stop at REI, then I participated in my first Teams meeting for staff while I was waiting to get my tires rotated. Wheee.
Wednesday (11,467 steps) - Work from home. NEW COUCH DAY!!!!!
Thursday (13,703 steps) - Thankfully, I had the day off! Ariel and I went for a run with Pika during lunch. Did some stuff around the house and later met Tyler at New Image for some Christmas Eve beers.
After getting home, Ben made dinner and I made pumpkin cheesecakes.
Friday (19,931 steps) - Got up around 8 for presents and merriment. I cannot believe that we did not take ANY pictures. None! Which is really a shame, because I wrapped all Ben's presents in banana paper, and it was hilarious. Anyway, much fun was had by all. We got a lot of pretty cool stuff, with A's big presents being her letter jacket and a new pair of snowshoes! Here is the one pic I took later in the morning of A in her Lemur onesie:
We had a repeat of Thanksgiving - ham, stuffing and potatoes. We facetimed with Ben's parents for a bit. After dinner, watched some Disney Christmas cartoons. Pretty awesome Christmas :)
Saturday (16,989 steps) - A had track practice in Northglenn, so I brought Pika with me so we could do a run while she was practicing. It was far enough away that I didn't want to come home between. We ended up doing a completely random run of about 4.5 miles, getting back to the track early enough to watch A do some sprints and her cooldown.
LOTS of time on the couch in the afternoon, although I still took Pika for a walk.
Sunday (27,081 steps) - Met Jandy and Lisa for a run at South Table. I have only run there a few times, and most recently was still a few years ago. I knew I was going to feel icky and be slow, but luckily they are patient. It ended up being a gorgeous (and warm!) morning, complete with spotting a few large and well-fed coyotes.
|Can you see the coyote?|
When I got home I took Pika for a walk. Since Ben was working, Ariel and I spent a majority of the afternoon on the couch.
Monday (10,137 steps) - Work from home. I know I had a long weekend, but it sure didn't feel like it. Took Pika for a snowy run at lunch, which actually wasn't too terrible.
Ben had to work pretty late, so we made dinner and watched a bunch of TV.
