Monday Mentionings: December 7

It’s Monday again.  I feel like the weeks are getting faster and faster.  2 and a half short weeks until Christmas!

Last Tuesday, I went to my new gym, and signed up! My new job has a corporate membership with the Overland Park Athletic Club, and I get a membership at a really great price.  It’s close to home and has so much more to offer than my apartment’s clubhouse gym.  I was excited to try it out, so Tuesday I ran on the Woodway Treadmill (EEEK! They have Woodways!) and then did some lower body weights.  Let me tell you.  I overdid it a bit, and my legs were so sore for two days.  I’m excited to be able to use the gym again a few times a week.

I work really close to home now, which is just fantastic.  I’ve been there for three weeks now, and have learned so much in such a short time.  The office I work in overlooks a beautiful lake, so I wanted to snap a picture to share.

I finally got a few personal things together to take to work too.  I don’t want to have a lot up at my desk, because there is lots of possibility of moving teams, which means moving around, but I wanted a few pictures of my favorite people.  I also put up my Christmas decorations, at home and at work,

Speaking of Christmas decorations, Jasper loves licking the Christmas tree.  Every night after dinner, he sits on the couch and licks and bites a branch or two of the Christmas tree.  I push him away, and he comes right back.  He hasn’t knocked it over though, so that’s good!

Saturday, I wrote out all of my Christmas cards, and wrapped all the gifts I have so far.  Everything is done except for the packages that are on their way to my apartment! Christmas is going to be such a relaxing and fun family time this year; I’m so excited.

Sunday morning I ran the Great Santa Run 5k, which was a lot of fun! I was so happy to end my year of races on such a great note.
