A long weekend of being in the mountains, completely unplugged was amazing for the soul. We took hikes, launched rockets, shot off fireworks, played plenty of bridge and rummikub and soaked in a lot of family time…
with a side of toasted marshmallows.
In fact, I even am patting myself on the back for focusing on being in the moment, which led to a few less pictures than I normally take, but I really enjoyed relaxing and spending time with family.
However, what is amazing for the soul isn’t always good for the body. A few too many glasses of wine, chips and onion dip and more than one bowl of chili has my body feeling completely off. My stomach feels unsettled, my energy levels aren’t what they usually are and I even think Hailey has been reacting negatively to my change in diet.
Please go back to eating veggies, mom!
So as sad as I am to see another wonderful holiday season come to a close, my health is rejoicing for a return to normalcy. We’re driving back this morning and I anticipate this afternoon being a time of unloading, unpacking and unwinding. However, tomorrow I will be kicking productivity into high gear. And I’m excited.
But just like we always do, we welcomed 2012 with a little luck, love and money… so at least I’ve had some vegetables this year
Are you feeling exhausted from the holidays?
Or pumped up and ready to make 2012 a freakin’ awesome year?
I’m the latter
