Stuffing the bus

Unlike stuffing my face at Thanksgiving! I tried to be really concious about what I was eating and putting on my plate. The other thing I really wanted to be concious about was moving! And to make sure I was moving more. I challenged myself to do 10,000 steps, but ended up at 8,500... all the more reason to make sure I make it there next year.

I hope the scale is kind to me after all of this, but only time will tell. And since I don't really care for leftovers, I don't have to worry about overeating. But there is still many sweets of the holiday season around... so in order to combat this, I must keep moving... House and pet sitting for a week hasn't helped. I've been out of my element. But my folks are home now, so I get to go back to my apartment for the week. Which makes me happy, I've missed my apartment. Which leads me to believe that my parents house isn't my house anymore, and my apartment with Benny is my home. Its a good feeling :-D

Black Friday was hilarious and also productive. I found some really great deals, and managed to get the majority of my shopping done. Save for a few smaller items here and there. Overall, the deals weren't stellar by any stretch, we didn't even bother going into Best Buy this year, but stuck with Kohl's, Target and **gasp** Walmart. Not that I am above Walmart, but typically we avoid it on Black Friday since its a nut house, but we went to the one in Portsmouth, not Newington (right next to the malls) and it wasn't crazy there. All in all managed a few good deals, but nothing that stood out at me.

Stuff the bus is this weekend. Early reports are indicating not many donations of toys, rather more money, but still overall donations are down. Honestly, it doesn't surprise me, but at the same time, makes me VERY nervous. I hope we have enough to go around.

Ben and I tagged our Christmas Tree, we found a nice one at the small farm we went to last year. We'll wait a few more weeks before we go back to cut it down. I can't believe its the end of November and the weather has been really nice. Soon Ben and I will be decorating for Christmas, which is a season that makes me happy. :-D Until Toy Bank just wears me down... but I am going to try to avoid that...

Oh well, I can only do so much :-D Story of my life... I need a personal chef and assistant... :-D
