Christmas started for me on Christmas Eve. I was up at 5 am to get some baking done for work and for home. I really enjoyed every bit of it and can't wait to get to do it for a family of my own. At the moment my children include the people I work with. I love them all as if they are my own. The were so excited when I walked in with them. But the biggest reward started when my 2 year old neice called me (with assistance from her dad) to see how when I would be home. She was waiting for me to decorate her sugar cookies. When I got home she ran to me and was ready to decorate. We went straight to the table and started decorating. She hand delivered them to her parents and grandparents. She did this at my mom's house and the following day at my dad's house. This will be a tradition for years to come with her and the children God blesses me with.
Christmas Day was just a great. I spent the day with my dad, sister and brother and his family. After my brother we made plans for a movie which seems to be what we do on the holiday. It was great going out with dad and his GIRLS!!!!
Now that Christmas is over it's time to work on my next set of goals. The first being getting in shape to run a short marathon in March and progressing to something bigger by the end of the year. I also plan to save money the next couple of months and get a place of my own. I start a new decade, the big 3-0 this year and have many plans for the next 10 years of my life. Read along as I blog my life and it's many twists and turns.
