Christmas Goals

Well, this is it. Family time is drawing near. I think it's best to outline some goals to help get me through the week. So here they are, in no particular order.

1. Practice fake smile & excited look in the event of a crappy gift
2. Run 5 miles on Saturday - rain or shine
3. Run at least 4 days during week off and go to gym to do weights
4. Don't be crazy
5. Don't consume too much wine that will cause puking.
6. Hold tongue when appropriate - basically just keep mouth shut all day
7. Eat fruit & protein for breakfast everyday
8. Find a way to sneak in laundry at sister's house (pathetic for a 32 yr old woman, isn't it?)
9. Try to blog a few times from home - can't disappoint my readers
10. Don't be crazy

Good luck to everyone dealing with "famille détraqué." I am testing out a new theory this year. Minimal time spent at each location, causing more driving than I would like, but less time = less opportunity for blow outs.

More time on Freeway vs. More time with Family. Freeway wins.

Merry Christmas. Peace Out.

Good luck with the list. But be careful, you need enough wine to achieve #s 4 and 10, just not so much that you barf. If you find that happy medium, let me know. I neeto know that info too.

I LOVE don't be crazy as a goal. It's actually one of my daily goals that I admit, sometimes I do not achieve. :) Merry Christmas!

#6 is definetly going to conflict with #5 and it could get real messy! But you could use that as a distraction to do your laundry!
