it’s december

December 2, 2012

WOW! It is really December? Really?

I guess when you are still wearing flip flops, shorts and using the AC, December can kind of sneak up on a girl. I think every year I complain that it is too stinkin hot to be December yet I have to remind myself that February is our coldest month. I seem to forget every single year. I have these visions of lighting the fire, sipping my hot coffee while snuggled in my down blanket. And the reality is right now I am sitting in boxer shorts, a tank top and sweating my ass off while drinking my piping hot coffee. How’s that for a warm and fuzzy December moment? The reality always seems a little less cozy. 🙂

I had to run errands yesterday and I wore jeans for the sheer fact that it’s December and my fashionista mother would be appalled to see me running around town in shorts and flip flops. I complain but let’s be honest, a real winter would eat me alive. It would chew me up and spit me out faster than I could zip up my coat.

I see the irony of it all. Believe me, I do.

So aside from my this summer-like December I am living in, I don’t have much going on. Actually I’m lying. I’m a teacher, I ALWAYS have something going on. 🙂 Last night I slept for 12 hours. 12 HOURS people. I was so tired. You know those Snicker commercials, “You’re not you when your hungry?” Well mine should be, “You’re not you when your tired.” I was exhausted. And poor Keith could do nothing right. Good thing he has thick skin. And making him pancakes this morning didn’t hurt my forgiveness case. (I use all the tricks up my sleeves that I can!)

Here some more irony for you, although I complain about being tired I am thinking about starting to train for another half marathon. I know. I know. But I’m bored with my current workout routine and not having any structure stresses me out a little. So if I have a plan to follow I think it would be a lot better. Plus I found a training plan that only requires 3 days of running and that is definitely more my style than running every day. I would shoot myself. We’ll see. I am not committing to anything yet. I am just thinking about it.

I started another book because I have so much free time to read books. 😉 But it is so cute so far! It is called Following Atticus. It’s a true story about a man and his dog Atticus. And I mean come on, anyone who names their dog after Atticus Finch (that’s from To Kill A Mockingbird for those of you who think I am crazy) is my kind of guy!

It’s cute. I’ve been reading out loud to Keith at night and even he agrees. We’re early in the book, like Chapter 3 or something, but so far it has been quite entertaining with several laugh out loud passages. There have been times when I’ve had to reread something because Keith can’t understand me through my giggles. I love books like that and I feel like it is the mark of a really good writer!

Alright, well it’s Sunday which means I have laundry to do, a date with Bella to go to the dog park, and some TV time with Peyton Manning. Enjoy your day friends!

      They ARE crazy! Winter break is all they are thinking about I swear! And Elf on a Shelf. I hear a lot about Elf on a Shelf. 😉 I need to start incorporating that guy into some Grammar lessons!

    I heard that book was great! It’s on my list! I can NEVER sleep in since my 8yo always wants to get up at 630 (with ME). Oh well, small price…

    bahahaha, i know! i think a real winter would eat us alive. Can we just have snow for a week but it still be sunny and around 45F? That would be good. P.S do the Zooma race in April! I have a discount code if you want to use it!
