Sleepless in Northern NY

Well, not exactly sleepless, but awake at 1 am. So I decided to come have a cup of tea to soothe me back to dreamland, and do a little blogging about our day…

We started out on Skype, watching the little guy open a few of his presents. It sure is great to be able to be there from across the distance and share those kinds of moments.

After our Skype time, I had some time to do some more personal training time on the Wii. I am trying to get into the routine of making it a part of every day. Some of those Yoga moves are crazy – it’s been quite a while since I could move my body into those positions!! Be right back But I guess that just means I will be able to tell I’m making progress.

We planned dinner for 2:30 in the afternoon so we had lots of time to do the cooking, while we watched A Christmas Carol (the one with George C. Scott – that’s my favorite).





You would have thought we had some company coming with all the food we laid out for the spread.




After dinner, we actually went outside to take a walk. The thermometer said something like 42 degrees, but the wind was cold. So we only went one lap around the development, which is a half mile.

Hope everyone out in Blogville also had a great holiday!



Well, I’ve had my cup of tea, so without further ado, I believe I will return to this night’s regularly scheduled programming…Smile…good night all….
