'Twas The Week Before Christmas

'Twas the week before Christmas and all thru Ohio, Tink was running, and biking, and wrapping, and shopping and baking, and drawing, and  filming, and waiting on hold, and watching marathons of TLC's been a busy week! Here's what I've been up to...

I've made enough truffles for an army. And coated counter tops, door knobs, and floors with truffle dough and chocolate.

Low fat, of course

After freaking myself out that I need to get off the bike and run, pain or no pain, I ran 4 miles yesterday (1 more than I intended) after 45 min. on the bike (not to mention the hr and 20 I spent on it on Monday)...and wait for it.... my hip didn't feel too bad or make me feel worse today! Wahoo! I can still run with Frank and my brothers over the Christmas holiday! Not to mention all the training runs I have until the race (15 days away!)

I filmed a PSA for No Texting While Driving for work. My job has some of the best perks! Today, PSA commercials, tomorrow, Hollywood! I think I gave an Oscar-worthy performance as a texting-driver. I have experience after all ( I know I know, for shame).

TV star!

At the last minute, a friend of ours decided to throw financial responsibility to the wind and will be joining us in Disney for a portion of our trip! Wahoo! Even better, because the Turtle's sister can't handle a lot of rides and that frees the Turtle and I to hop on the Tower of Terror 8 billion times in a row! This also resulted in my being on hold with 3 seperate Disney departments to make sure our friend got added to reservations, like our tasty California Grill dinner (best food ever with the best view!)

And lastly, I finished one more painting. This one is definitely going to be the one I give to my super dentist, Dr. Jim for his office.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! And Thank You all so much for all the lovely comments you've left me since I started this. I've had some trouble figuring out how to directly reply to each one, but they all make me smile, so thank you very much!


  1. It has no beach! It needs to be called Maui Sunrise!!! :)

  2. Correction: You made enough truffles for an Air Force!!!
