After months of planning, the holiday season of 2011 has come and gone leaving my home a disaster and me with zero energy to attend to it. I should have asked Santa for a maid. Seriously, it ain't cute.
The fat old man did manage to squeeze in a stop to our home and left us with some rather wonderful gifts. Even my fur babies got a few treats.

Santa must be reading my blog.

Somehow I still managed to get in 51 miles last week with the 5 holiday celebrations that were going on around us. All easy miles, but this was my first 6 day running week since the first week of October. There were 12 weeks in there where I kept my activity level down to a 5 day max, so getting back into the swing of things last week was a bit tiring in combo with all of the other festivities going on. Last night I crashed before 10 pm and didn't wake up until 8:30 am this morning, and it felt amazing.
With all of the out-of-towners here for the holidays and the gatherings in the last 5 days, I decided that it would be the best time to unplug from social media for a few days.
No tweets. No blog posts. No status updates. Nada.
Instead there was plenty of laughter, hugs, memories created, and more then my fair share of cookies.

This weeks goal is to hit the high 50's with mileage, try to keep up with my girl Charlyn on Saturday for a long run, and keep away from the 3 lbs. of chocolate my Mother-in-law gifted us.
Yikes, that's a lot of chocolate for 2 people.
What was your favorite holiday gift that you received?
