December seems like it was a blur of baking, work, food, Christmas lunches and other assorted tidbits - like me getting my Canadian citizenship a few days before Christmas and then going to apply for a Canadian passport. I've lived here for 35 years... it seemed like a good time. I now hold dual citizenship.
As for the whirlwind of of the holiday season... I was sick. The entire time. Yep. Christmas day I leaped out of bed (sort of) and went for an hour run (before I could change my mind), then made blueberry buttermilk pancakes and then promptly went back to sleep for the day. Eric went out to a movie. The next day Eric went back to work. I remained in the house... mostly in my pajamas...until yesterday. In beween, I ran on the treadmill, rode my trainer, slept and watched movies. Lots of movies. Mostly horror.
Now that I've watched Saw I-IV (twice each!), 1408, some others that I don't remember (they were that good) and going out to see Black Swan yesterday - I'm ready to morph into 'Athlete' Sue again. Maybe if I say it out loud frequently enough...?
Back to work today and it feels like I never left the place (or slept) - LOL!
Welland races are in 173 days... eek!
Is it 'normal' to feel so sluggish at the first of the new year? Ugh!!
Perhaps I should start wearing some spandex or compression gear to work each day (layers or something) to remind myself that I - AM - A - MACHINE...
Yeah... that could work...
