Without the snow, Christmas break just snuck up on me before I even realized that Christmas is next week! I have two weeks off of work! While I am very excited of course, I'm starting to wonder what we're going to do. I seem to have a deathly fear of boredom. My breaks used to be spent snowboarding my life away. Then two years ago I spent it being sick as could be and wondering why on earth they call it "morning sickness" because "all day death" seemed more appropriate. Last year I spent it snuggling my sleepy little newborn and soaking up every minute I had with him. This year I foresee chasing Beckett all over the place, trying desperately to keep him from breaking anything, and listening to his screechy scream when he is bored of playing with his toys. Staying at home while he is awake is hard for me because I'm not really accomplishing anything more than cleaning up after the messes he makes. Nap time is heaven and I always make it a point to be home for that, but otherwise we both seem to prefer being out of the house and having fun together. I think I need a hobby. Actually I have lots of hobbies, but I need to find one that Beckett and I can do together. You can see from the picture above he loves to help me cook, but it's still a little hard because I don't trust him to stand on a chair or sit on the counter on his own yet. I've been looking at those learning towers and I can't decide if getting one would be worth it or not. Anyway, I'm not really sure what we're going to do the next few weeks, but our goal is to have a lot of fun!
I'm excited to report that I accomplished my work out goals this week. I can't believe it, but I woke up at 5:00 am to do yoga. As long as I didn't stay up too late, it wasn't hard at all and I feel so good. I lost two pounds (which might have been blown after the treat explosion that happened at work today), and just like I thought working out would encourage me to do, eating healthier has been easier!
Come to me Christmas!
