December 20


An early morning as we volunteered for the 7am to 9am shift for ACO's Christmas toy distribution helping load donated toys and bicycles. Robbie started his Winter Minimester class today by printing out a huge stack of reading material. I'm trying to stay on track with my exercise, but not doing as well as I would like this month, so I made a special effort to get my strength training routine in today. Completed my usual Monday chores - paying bills, processing paperwork, doing laundry. We started a new puzzle and watched It's A Wonderful Life this evening.

What a great puzzle that is. Way to go on the toy distribution. That must be super fun and fulfilling! You are looking really good. Sounds like you've done fairly well despite the months busyness.
