Happy New Year! We had a wonderful Christmas Break…my husband took off to stay home with the kids and I for the week. We visited lots of family, ate plenty of good food and had some down time, too. I was looking forward to everyone going back to school and work today so that I could reclaim the house and put it back in order. Getting back to the gym today was also at the top of my list as soon as the kids went to school. Much to my chagrin, my 6 year old woke up to a croupy cough along with lots of sneezing. My plan of having some much-needed alone time this morning quickly flew out the window. So, instead of executing my plan to overhaul the mess that accumulated during the Christmas Break and getting back into a regular workout routine, my youngest and I will get to have some snuggle time together without the rest of the family. Not such a bad deal, if you ask me.
