I should be catching you guys up on Christmas, but I just haven’t been in a blogging mood this week. I’ve been busy during the day getting closets and rooms cleaned out
taking Christmas decorations down
baking for a New Year’s Eve get-together
doing laundry and general chores and taking Monte to the vet.
We thought (and hoped) Monte had a knee problem but the vet thinks it’s probably his hip. Not what parents of a large breed dog want to hear. Monte goes back on Monday for x-rays so we’ll keep our fingers crossed for the best news after the vet gets a good look.
“You mean I have to go back?”
One thing I haven’t done much of? Exercise. I went to my muscle conditioning class on Saturday and while it felt good to be active, my back hurt afterward. So I’ve been trying to take it easy with the official exercise to give my back a break. I’ll go back to the Y on Thursday and we’ll see how I feel afterward.
One last day of Christmas vacation, but at least I only have two days to work before the weekend. Nice way to ease back into the real world.
Hope you guys all had a fun New Year’s Eve and aren’t spending today wishing you hadn’t celebrated quite so hard. I’m no fortuneteller, but I’m pretty sure I don’t need a crystal ball to know I am feeling fine today.
Happy belated birthday to the McDad whose birthday was yesterday.
