We were up by 6:15 and out the door of our hotel by 8:20. Ten minutes later we were in the mall exchanging a few items and getting Dixie’s watch sized. A few hours after that we were at lunch with her at a 50’s style diner which turned out not to be very good. In any case, we had a nice visit.
Then around 1, we headed for home. It was 17 degrees when we left Denver and 40 at home in Vail! We dropped the boys in town to meet up with Warner and then headed home to unload all the stuff by ourselves. Once I had everything inside, I was off to get Mojo.
By 4 pm I was helping Lori put things away and then we hit the tree. 90 minutes later, we had “de-Christmased” the house as we always do on the 26th. We like to get a jump on the New Year, plus with both of us working, we need to get things cleaned up as soon as possible. It’s sort of our tradition to put things away the day after.
Finally around 7 after 4 or 5 loads of laundry, we sat down to watch a movie. At 9:30 I headed into town to get the boys who had went to the new Star Wars movie after ice skating and hanging out in town. This morning Lori and I are headed to the gym and back on our program after 36 hours of eating whatever we wanted.
Lori will then work half a day and so will I before heading back down to Denver to have dinner with Dixie who leaves tomorrow. After much discussion, it looks like she’ll stay in California at least for the time being. The altitude here is not good for her plus she has a better support system there. We’ll see what happens.
It’s 6:05 now so time to get ready for the gym. We’re with our trainer this morning who is pretty tough. Both boys undoubtedly will be sleeping when we get home a bit after 8. Hope everyone had a great Christmas and that you received all that you hoped for. Tom and Ali probably still have presents to open. That’s how they roll, ha.
Take care, have a great day and get ready for 2018, God Bless!
