Not sure if you guys are aware, but in my job we are actually forced to take the week between Xmas and New Year’s off – using our vacation time of course. Isn’t that all kinds of fucked up?
Through begging – I am allowed to work one day and this year will be Wednesday. So, since I am using my time and have the days off I’m trying to make the most of it.
This is decidedly NOT my time of year that I would like to take off, for sure. I like to take the time off where I can lay out in the sun!
Anyway, so for Xmas this year, one of the gifts that I bought Marc was the Garmin Virb Elite. Marc has been wanting one of those action camera that are really popular now and I did something I hate – I did exhaustive research on a techie item to determine the best one! Anyway, I think I made the right choice for Marc’s needs and wants!
Today we took the dogs out to a beach to run around and play. It was effing COLD and windy there! So we didn’t spend a lot of time there as I wanted to. But the dogs got to run up and down the empty beach and chase balls and have a grand old time!
Marc brought his Virb and took a short video of them playing. You can hear how windy it was – yuck!
But the boys had a great time and the sun was partially out so I got some sun. Win-win.
On the way back, we went right by out vet’s office so I stopped to run Chakotay in and get an official weight on him – 89 pounds!!! My little pudgster and I both will be working on trimming numbers won’t we?
Today was a success eating wise – a healthy lunch and then for dinner we had catfish for the first time! I loved it, but Marc was not so thrilled. Paired with quinoa and kale? I consider that a very healthy dinner. Closing the year out, I am slowly getting back on track!
