AHHHHHHHH!! Yes, I’m freaking out, aren’t you? It’s December 1st already and I’m still sorting gifts, sorting luggage and what to pack (this time of the year is more difficult as there are more parties etc to attend) trying to make sure my apartment doesn’t turn into a huge mess every other day after packages are received. And it’s COLD… and gloomy. Which means, even though mentally I have a lot that I want to do, physically there is no drive whatsoever. This apartment has the worst natural lighting ever. You may be happy and cheery once you leave home but when you get back it’s depressing as hell. I still love the layout and double sinks in my master bathroom but I’d give up the sinks for better lighting. Anyway, I’ve finally put up all my little bits of decorations and I occasionally play Christmas music to really get me going. Last week Dave and I just went through all of the songs we love to hear and added them to a playlist. *Bliss*
Can you tell I’m ready to go home and enjoy time with my family and the sun, sea and sand?! I don’t know how long it’ll take me to really adjust to this weather but I dislike it a lot. You can get dressed and be well covered but knowing you have to put on so much is … ugh! I’m dreaming of a hot Christmas! Anyway, deep down inside I would love to be baking and filling the house with wonderful, yummy smells, but it’s just Dave and I right now, and food will be wasted. The main issue with holding stuff here is we have quiet hours plus parking is kind of stink for visitors so I don’t like to entertain too often. If that wasn’t the case I’d probably be doing something every other month. I love entertaining! But it’s probably a good thing because I’d get chunky eating so much. However, until we move, I’ll use this time to experiment with healthier options as gluten and wheat are making an exit from my diet. It’s also helping me get closer to my 2pack as I don’t think I could get a 6.. I don’t like to see girls with 6 packs – freaks me out! My friend already said she’s dying for my apple crumble so I know I’ll definitely be doing that when I get home.
I went to Michael’s yesterday and I got a few knick knacks – gift bags, boxes, tins, Christmas cards and a cute Christmas mug. I didn’t have one of those so I thought it would make me feel more cheery drinking from it lol. And it has a ceramic lid as well, I can’t wait to use it! I might go and get another one and then post pics of both of them. I’m awful with this follow up posting pics thing. I need to get into using the app on my phone
I’ve been extremely distracted writing this post, so I think I’ll end here and probably do a follow-up when I’ve settled myself and my mind isn’t racing over everything that has to be done. The gym is still in operation and as much as I’m loving the transformation taking place I’m hating the soreness. Almost wish I was a man so I didn’t have to sit to pee… all in the name of toned legs and a perky butt! *sigh*
No pain, No gain…
