Holiday humbug

I have been a little "out of sorts" lately - not really looking forward to Christmas, or anything right now. Thank goodness my husband likes to shop and he has taken care of most of the gifts for our girls, otherwise they would have a pretty sparse Christmas.

We are deep in the trenches of remodeling our master bedroom - we have actually "bumped" out the bedroom with an addition and now have a little under 400 feet of extra space that will be our master bath and a new walk-in closet. This has been sucking up most of our time, thus my excuse for not posting in over a month. I'm good at thinking of these excuses - it isn't just cuz I suck at it. The remodel has taken on a life of its own, and it keeps growing with new ideas, etc. Unfortunately, I think it has maxed out our budget at this point and we may have some loose ends that we have to hold off on until some more money comes in. It will be nice to have the extra space and the luxury bath and closet - but I am tired of sleeping on a blow-up bed in my living room in the mean time.

I did participate in the California International Marathon (CIM) at the beginning of December as a member of a relay team. That was a blast. The bad thing was I did a hip-hop class with some ladies from my work a few weeks prior, and ended up with some nasty shin splints that really slowed me down, and six weeks later are still giving me grief. Needless to say I have not been able to run as much as I should be to train for a Marathon in March. That has pushed me to the decision to just do a half marathon in March, and save my first full Marathon until fall or next year's CIM. Otherwise I will likely never heal, and I will not be happy with my performance.

Last night I watched the soup and saw this very funny clip, watch until the end :)

After seeing David Beckham in his panties, I just don't understand why Posh Spice doesn't smile more! She should be a very happy woman.
