Hectic Day

Hectic Day at work today. I just didn't want to wake up this morning and then I couldn't get my hair to be nice today. I know that getting my hair right wasn't a big thing but I was tired and the fact that I felt tired and looked it with my hair was making me feel even more tired. If that is understandable.

I got back to it today. I made sure I was drinking my water and just doing it. I must admit though I have been thinking about food too much today.... it is a little off putting.

Work is so hectic with all the xmas things and the fundraising for the Relay for Life (for cancer).

I don't know if I told you all before but I am doing the Relay for Life next year in March. It is where they walk for 24 hours and get sponsers so that we raise money for cancer patients and their families.

I am doing it! I have paid my fee to be in it now I just have to raise money. We are part of a team and we have a weekend where we walk for 24 hours as a team (taking turns). I have one sponser already and he has given me $10 so that feels absolutly wonderful that he has faith in me and is sponsoring me. The funny thing is is that it is BLONDE'S ex husband that sponsored me.

I had a phone call from my gym instructor yesterday to ask me where the hell I have been. It felt great that she cared enough to phone and find out what was up and if I was getting back on track.

So I had a good long talk with her and I am getting back on track. I have asked her to help me train for this 'Relay for Life' so she is going to work out a program for me to get me motivated and get me up and running for this challenge.

I am also working on my little project I mentioned the other day but I am not going to say what it is just yet as I want to do this first then mention it. It is keeping me busy that is for sure.

I also think that this time of the year is what is making me feel like I can't be bothered and I have lost my mojo.... I miss my Dad. He really loved Christmas and since he died I think that love for Christmas died for me.

I have been really trying this Christmas to do more. I have got most of the presents done except for stocking fillers and I have been working on Xmas Cards and I have the table decorations all sorted and feel like I am on top of that.

Friends are coming around on Sunday to do a Tree Trimming party. We were supposed to do this last year but couldn't. It is where both families make christmas biscuits to hang on the Xmas tree. We make it, cook it, paint it and hang it. Plus lunch in the middle of all that. We are also going to the Christmas Carols that night too. So the whole Sunday is going to be quite Christmasy and full on. It has been a long time and I hope I don't get too emotional as I haven't let myself get Christmasy in years as it brings back too many memories. But I know my Dad wouldn't want me to be like this at Christmas anymore.

Anyway that is me for now.

Will try and get on tomorrow night to update but the Creche has the children's xmas party and it is going to be a hoot... My hubby is going to be the Santa... he he he a skinny santa is soooo funny.

Love ya all

Great that the gym instructor followed up looking for you! Also good luck with your new program.
Sunday sounds like fun - you may still get the emotions flowing but you have your boys and your dad would want you to enjoy it all.

Sunday sounds gorgeous, I hope that you can get your christmas spirit back so that you pass on that love of christmas to your kids!

Have you got a website link for the Relay for Life sponsorship. You should post it here - I'm sure you'd pick up some sponsors that way. Good on you for joining in, we do it each year and get a lot out of it.
