I did get in 8 miles last weekend. The winds were gusting at 25 mph + when I woke up Sunday morning. I tried to bail but luckily my friend Lisa suggested we try a different trail, one that is much more protected from the elements by lots of trees. And I'm so glad she did! Granted, I hate the park we went to because of the hills, but she was right, there was hardly any wind. I even ditched my jacket on the second lap and ran in short sleeves. In December! In Ohio! It was a Christmas miracle.
We randomly saw a herd...gaggle...flock...gang? of wild turkeys. Weird.
Check out that cute Santa butt! (Note to Megatron: I don't EVER want to see your butt on the internet once you are past the age of say...two. See my 21 lessons.)
Opening the one wrapped gift I gave him....instantly started trying to eat the wrapping paper. Hopefully it was non-toxic...
Megatron's extended family was very kind and sent him gifts from across two states. And the toys were much needed as he is just starting to grab and interact with things and we didn't have many toys for him yet. What was not needed? Zip ties and having my hands covered in cuts and scrapes from trying to get those d*&@ toys out of their packaging. I'm sure it's just going to get worse as the toys get bigger.
Hey Megatron, care for a spot of tea?
OK, that is all of my rambling for today. I hope you all enjoyed the holidays!
