Costa Rica and Christmas

Posted on December 7, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I’m leaving on a belated honeymoon to Costa Rica in a little over a week.  That means that I’m cramming in as many holiday parties and end of the year drinks that I can before then.   I also want to get as much Christmas shopping done before we leave.  Sure we can buy some gifts in Costa Rica, but the planner in me does not want to rely on only that!

I am caught up in all the things I have to get done before we leave, like buy a bigger suitcase that I can still use as a carry on, figure out how to hold our mail for the week while we’re gone, get a pedicure (um, these toes are about to see the sun and I need to make them pretty), and return a pair of hastily bought jeans that I actually don’t like.   The weekend really is the only time I can get in a significant amount of errands so  I find myself here on Wednesday strategizing my exact plans for Saturday and Sunday to get it all done!  It consumes my thoughts and I get antsy knowing that I have to wait a few more days to finish it all.

I also am trying to keep up on the exercise train amidst all the holiday madness.  I finally got my butt out of bed this morning to do a short run on the treadmill.  It felt good and glad I did it.  I haven’t had time at all after work to make this happen, so my goal is to get better at waking up in the mornings to get in my exercise before the trip.  The jury is still out on whether my running sneakers will fit in the soon to be bought new suitcase!

In other very exciting news, a friend of mine whose baby shower I had on Saturday, is having the baby this week and I really can’t wait to meet their new little addition sometime over the weekend – that is the kind of  weekend activity that is worth the wait!!
