This past week was our first full week back after vacation. I kind of feel like we were cheated by Mother Nature a bit, though…while we were in California, the weather at home was gorgeous (sunny, warm) and the weather in California was cold and rainy (luckily there were some sunny days mixed in, but it was still kind of chilly). Then, when we got home, the weather took a turn (we even had a couple of nights where the low dipped below freezing) while the weather in California changed back to warm and sunny. Dangit! 😉 As far as what we did this week, it was kind of a recovery week. I got the kids back into their school routine, Paul jumped back into work with both feet, I got back into my working out and walking routine, and we worked together to get Christmas tucked away (and I also added a couple of small new household items). Here’s to a brand new year!
