We have already had a wonderful dinner and are enjoying a quiet afternoon before we further stuff our faces at about 3, with dessert. It is just us today; we will be visiting family for Christmas this year (and which, in truth, we do almost every year).

For my husband and I, it is the first day in the past 60 days when we have not strictly counted our calories. (I have lost 9 pounds, and he has lost 10.) I plan to estimate the calories so as to not lose my 60 day streak in MyFitnessPal, but I’m not particularly watching them today.

We will put up our Christmas tree sometime over the weekend, but we will not be hitting the shops. Neither one of us are Black Friday fans, but we have been known to participate in Cyber Monday. And I think I’ll probably get some writing done.

If you have a long weekend this week, what are you up to?

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Tia! Like you, I and my parents (led by Dad’s hatred of crowds) will be avoiding the stores like the plague. Except for grocery stores. As busy as they are earlier in the week, we find they’re 3/4ths dead right after Thanksgiving. We figure everyone is at the mall and the big-box stores. So it’s the perfect time to get groceries. {GRIN, wink}

    Beyond that, I’m hoping to bins another book, catch up on chores, and generally take things easy. {Smile}

    • That sounds like a good shopping strategy!

      We’re having a bit of a cold snap now, and our heater is misbehaving. We’ll try to fix it ourselves, but I bet we’ll have to call a repairman.

      But I am determined not to let it stress me out.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! I went to visit my sister in North Carolina. We stayed a couple days and got to see the beach. It was a really awesome visit. Now I’m all relaxed and happy. 🙂
