Challenge Being Over

Gosh. Now that the posting every day challenge thing is over, I certainly am slacking! Ha. I made it though. I posted every day for the month of November. I am not even trying for the month of December as Decembers are crazy and I don't want that kind of pressure.....

So, updates. Let's start with Friday. Friday work was craziness. I spent all morning preparing documents for a trial we have on Monday. Got that done just in time to leave for court. Was in court from 2 p.m. until almost 4:00 p.m. Came back to the office to appointments and finally got to eat Subway at 4:30 p.m. I was famished. Worked until 6 p.m. when Hollie and Jim came to pick me up for the concert--Aerosmith with opening act, Hinder. The concert was awesome. They performed my fav song, Love in an Elevator......We had amazing seats in the 8th row next to the stage and there were points when Steven Tyler was literally 8 feet away from me. Awesome show.

Saturday, I had to do a conference call in the morning on a case, what a fabulous way to wake up. Or not. After that, had to work part of the day, and then we had the Xmas dinner for the school board. It was at the Toledo Raceway Park. It was SO MUCH FUN. Dinner was salad, shrimp and chocolate mousse. We got to watch the horse races and eat dinner. It was a great Xmas party. During one of the races, the board got to go down on the field and get our picture taken with the winning horse. That was pretty kewl.

Today was kinda a lazy day. I slept in, then watched the Lions game. I was cheering for them to lose, as I want them to get a high draft pick since their season has been shot for some time. After that, I went to Target and Kroger's and have been doing nothing the rest of the night. I really need to do laundry, Xmas cards, etc., but I don't feel like it, so I am not. I bought Gretel an adorable sweater at Target today.....She is ALWAYS cold, and I thought it might help. She seems to love it and seems more warm. I am not a dressing your animals up kinda person, but she looks super cute and seems happier.
Oh, I almost forgot! I booked our trip today! Finally. We kept goiing back and forth between different places, and finally settled on Costa Rica. We will be going there the 16th and coming back on Xmas. I can't freaking wait. The hotel we are staying at is so *us*, it is run by 26 people who are vegetarian animal lovers. I think it was made for us, really. Rented us an SUV and can't wait to leave. I can't even describe how much I need a vacation.
