So Long 2009, 2010 is Nearly Here

I am sorry I neglected our blog this past month. I had an early case of the winter blues which would have resulted only in dribble so consider yourselves lucky. Too much work and no play makes for a very boring blog I know. By the time I shook myself out of it, there was only a week to go before Christmas which resulted in more than enough stress for the whole month jammed into one week. Talk about not heeding your own advice!

The good news is I got my act together in time to enjoy the holiday with both our families together at our place.

Luckily, we had decided to go non-traditional with our meal and ordered pizzas ahead of time, so we could just put them in the oven. This made more sense for us since we really didn't have room for 12 people to sit down at tables. It also allowed everyone to just keep enjoying each other's company rather than being squeezed in the kitchen trying to do last minute cooking, etc.

Our memories of the evening included a surprise visit from Santa for my nephew (my husband Ben), the arrival of my brother in law's girlfriend who was supposed to be in California and lots of laughter and fun.

Now, I am looking forward to a New Year's Eve with friends including the girls from the blog who haven't been all together in one place since this time last year. I know we will have lots to talk about. Although 2009 was a pretty good year, I am anxious to continue making more progress on what I started. Sue, you and I can work on continuing to change our lifestyles together. My goals include incorporating ways to plan and shop for our meals, so that we do more of our own cooking during the work week. I know you could probably help me with this. And perhaps, I could help you with putting a routine together that includes some techniques for strength training as well as cardio? One step at a time of course! We can talk more about it tomorrow night:)

As for our readers, I just wanted to say thanks for sticking with us through another year. We hope you had a wonderful holiday as well and that you are looking forward to your own joys and successes to come At Work, At Play and At Home in 2010.
