|The only gift I wanted|
We kept the holiday cheer rolling all weekend. Dalton and I had a little mommy/son date with our good friends, Carolyn and Nathan.

Dalton is clearly the best gift I could hope to receive, but Eric had a close second waiting for me when we got home. He cleaned the fridge and the freezer. Both were spotless and glorious. Cleaning the fridge is my #1 most loathed task ever. Something about the potential for spoiled food. Even when I worked at Starbucks, where there was never spoiled milk, I would always beg to clean the bathrooms rather than the milk fridges at closing. I would literally rather clean toilets used by thousands of strangers than wipe down a fridge. I warned Eric when we moved in together that was one task he had to always do, and he's stepped up to the plate ever since.
We rang in the month of December in the usual way. Another mom/baby date with Katharine and Zoë to take a walk in 65 degree, beautiful sunny weather.
|Not the greatest photography but you get the idea.|
Speaking of exercise, I took the entire last week off. In retrospect, that would have been a good time to work out, since I constantly had another adult around to look after Dalton, but what's done is done. Now I'm back on track though. I need to start training. April is coming.
Last year, I re-watched the entire Game of Thrones series on the treadmill starting in January, and believe me when I say nothing has ever motivated me to exercise quite so nicely. I had big ambitions of doing the same in 2015. But, as always nowadays, it took far too long for the obvious to hit me. I barely fit in three seasons last year, so watching four seasons this year while also trying to be a mom was a fool's errand. So I started Saturday, and I'm already 3 episodes in. I hate new experiences, but repeatedly watching a TV series based on a book series I've already read is heaven on earth. So, no races on the horizon, but this seems like a solid goal.
What's the one TV series you can never get sick of? I have a lot. I think my favorites are The Office and Sex and the City. I had all 9 seasons of The Office ready to watch while I was in labor, but that didn't exactly work out.
