Silent But Not Deadly

I have been MIA. Well, actually I’ve been in NJ, VT, and NY.  We have been traveling for the holidays to see my hubby’s family and I’ve let my blog completely slide.

We flew to New Jersey to see my inlaws, and headed into New York City one day.

Obligatory stop: Midtown Comics

We then went to spend Christmas with Joe’s sister in Vermont.  The elves left us on Christmas Eve to head back to the North Pole.  Truth is, I was sad to see them go … they did bring us magic and wonder.

Christmas came and went.  Dreamer got a Snap Circuit Board and I have to say it’s the BEST gift ever! Fortunately we have some very science minded folk in the family who help him with this.  He even built a radio 🙂

We had to explain what a radio tuner was!

I have only run twice this past week.  Once in Vermont (4.5 miles) where my hands froze, and once in New York (15 miles.)  At least I got my long run in.

Brrrr. Running in under 30 degrees is no fun for a Miami girl

But mostly I’ve eaten.  There were two days where my #SixPackMami diet fell apart in a large part due to these cookies.  I just love them and resisted one day only to almost singlehandedly eat the entire box the next.  Go big or go home.  Fortunately, I have forgiven myself and am now back on maintenance track.  My goal is to not gain weight while away.

We then headed to New York state, where I am now.  We do a lot of snuggling and keeping warm.  Chatting under covers and catching up with family we don’t see more than twice a year.

I’ve had lots to think about, and my mind is whirling with posts that have still gone unwritten.  More soon ….

What have you been up to this holiday?
