Christmas might not be about the gifts (okay, it’s not), but Boxing Day is legitimately about the shopping.
I can’t sleep…so there’s been coffee, breakfast, and some damage to my Visa. I wanted to go to London (to drop off my haul from Santa 😉 and to shop), but then I remembered: ONLINE SHOPPING. Bring on the lululemon sale, without the elbowing in the face. Free shipping, folks. If you’re part of R&D, you can’t use it online, but whatever! 🙂 Happy spandex.
I feel like I should throw in some pictures from yesterday! I had a good Christmas and hope you all did, but I’d be lying if I said it was stress free or Ed-free. Thanks for the support friends and the afternoon, which started out bad bad bad, ended GOOD, with this meal to get me back on track after a little incident with too many cookies. It happens. You move on, you eat the next meal, and you spend time with the people who love you. I visited and delivered goodies to my friends when
all I Ed wanted me to do was lie in bed. If that’s not taking the day back, moving forward to recovered, and getting stronger, I don’t know what is.
I spent the evening at my friends’ house. I’ve known the girls since elementary school so it was like old times. We enjoyed some puppy chow (a nutritional rock star, you know–>Crispix topped with melted peanut butter, chocolate chips, and butter with vanilla and coated in powdered sugar), caught up, and
talked over “watched” Polar Express!
What’s next today?
Picking up my sister for some boxing day shopping (on my list: organizing stuff—think bins, think file folders, think Lysol, and maybe some underwear–gasp!), a run with a really accomplished runner I’m excited to learn from, a visit to a family friend’s Christmas (I get to play Santa!), and then loading up everything and heading back to London for a while. I think I’m going to need a serious supply of caffeine today!
Do you shop on Boxing Day?
How did you spend your Christmas?
