So I was

Wondering if my mom and friend Michelle will be offended if I hop on the trainer while they make Christmas cookies on Saturday afternoon. It's the only way I can get in a workout between the Kona party and pub night. 

Contemplating what workout I will do on Sunday considering there is a high risk of waking up with a headache. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCIABLE! Swim? I may drown but that might be acceptable.

Thinking I have laughed more in the last half of 2010 than I did in all of 2008 and 2009 put together. I like this trend.  (coughDedecough)

Wishing I never found out that people actually eat cookie dough as a snack.  (coughMatty&Emzcough)

Hoping the weather gets nice enough for me to ride outside soon, I miss cycing, that is weird. I'm not hardcore like some of my friends, I don't ride in crappy weather.   (coughBryan&Iancough)

Recommending you grab a drink and click every link in my blogroll because everyone is posting GREAT stuff. 

Talking to and getting to know the people at my new job. I quite like everyone so far. 

Listening to my 'drive' mix on my iPod but I'm looking for new music suggestions. Hit me up wouldya!

Dancing quietly in my chair to the music.. Shhhhhh

Laughing at conversations flying around my head from management, they are pretty funny (and inappropriate, I love it!). 

Writing a letter to my great aunt Helena, she is 90 and she makes legendary, yes LEGENDARY molasses cookies. Ok, I'm not writing it this second but I will before the day ends.

Enjoying my new Tassimo coffeemaker, even more than I thought. I haven't slept since I got the bloody thing! 

Missing my family that lives out of town. I need to make an effort to connect with them more. 

Searching for old tax paperwork, if you've seen my home office you KNOW this is not going to be easy. 

Excited to try the Double Chocolate vodka I bought the other day. 

Scared of the potential hangover after I try that vodka.  I might have to bring this to the Kona party to share.

Checking the class schedule at Millcroft, need to get my butt back to group training. 

Making beef stew for dinner on Sunday, I think.

That's all I got

PS - I got some great, reasonably priced wine recommendations from the Chef upstairs and I'm really looking forward to trying them. 

**Not all at the same time.

Come on... You must know that B and I would make sure you stayed safe. It's quite fun, seriously... Would I lie to you for my own amusement? Haha.
Great post.

BDD, thank you!

Jason, I'm glad you enjoyed it, I actually giggled while writing it.

Ian, despite your claims to the contrary I'm not entirely convinced and in the end I'll stay warm and dry in the house. tyvm

This post just made my day, thanks Adena. You rock.

And I always leave company to spend time on the trainer. Sometimes it is really because I WANT to get away from the company ha ha...BUT I say, well you see, I am training for an Ironman..ha

Random: thoughts that you share which make me laugh

Sauced: What you will be when you try all that alcohol

Happy: When you are with your family on Christmas

Hysterical: You all the time.

Take care and thanks for the awesome post. Keep it real and don't be afraid to bike in the rain and bad weather, it's actually quite therapeutic. Take it from me, I know.

Thanks Mandy! We didn't end up making cookies which meant I couldn't sneak away to ride on the trainer. But at least I don't have any cookies in the house to eat.

Bamboo Cyclist, thank you for the comments!! You are kind to stop by here, read and leave me a note.
