Always Look on the Bright Side

by Meghann on December 26, 2009

A couple of sad things happened this morning…

  • I left Maddie in the care of her dog sitter and had to say good bye for an entire week.
  • After spending over an hour at the Apple store I was informed the wrong memory chip had been ordered for my computer and they didn’t have the correct chip in stock because I have an ‘older generation’ mac ๐Ÿ™

On the bright side a couple of good things happened as well…

  • Maddie was all smiles when I left her and was thrilled to spend the next week with her new boxer friend, Mugsy. Sarah has already sent me three text messages informing me how well they are getting along.
  • I was able to return the wrong memory chip and order the correct one which should be waiting for me when I return next week

Oh… and did I mention I am leaving for a full of Colorado skiing in the morning?!?! EEkkk!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I always prefer to look on the bright side of life. ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t know what we were thinking, but going to the mall the day after Christmas may not have been the best idea. It was busy, busy, busy!

By the time we were ready for lunch there was zero chance of locking down a table in the food court. Instead we headed outside and had a nice picnic on the sidewalk.

Despite the crowds I was able to track down a few belated Christmas presents before heading home. ๐Ÿ™‚

I will be sad when these are all gone.

My Dad put the left over ham bone from christmas eve to good use in the form of soup!

He made 15 Bean soup and Split Pea Soup.

I couldn’t decide what I wanted, so I had a little of both. ๐Ÿ˜‰ With a piece of cornbread on the side.

The split bowl concept worked perfectly.

Dessert was a small scoop of ice cream and a peanut butter ball.

Got to catch some Zzzzs now. We have an early flight in the morning and have been warned to except some major crowds at OIA.

Good Night!!

The Day After Christmas

December 26, 2009

Happy December 26th! Christmas is officially over, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m really happy Christmas was on a Friday this year. Having December 26th as a Saturday this year just worked out perfectly. My legs were itching for a run this morning. I set out to do an easy more ยป
