december thirty :: 80 weeks old

Mack is 80 weeks old today.

He's one of my two future hockey stars. He's really gotten the hang of it.

My mom watched the boys for a bit this afternoon so I could run into work today to take care of anything that was really urgent and that needed taking care of. I didn't work last week since we were closed on Christmas Day & we had guests staying with us until the day before. There was a bit of work to do, and I took care of what was really important and left a few things that weren't so important for next week, when I'll be back in the office as normal. It's been a crazy last two weeks. It was absolutely freezing in my office today, but I did get my hands on a space heater. Also, my store manager has fixed the back door so no more cold air should be coming in from now on. Let's hope that helps as well. I can't really work at the computer with blue/numb fingers! Not so good. I am also really happy that I decided to leave the house today with my sweater, because sometimes I don't exactly wear it under my jacket. I did some groceries on my way home from work and picked up dinner for my 3 boys.

Tonight I went out knitting with some friends.

We had a lot of fun taking pictures of each other taking pictures.

I had a really nice time out tonight with my friends. It was a very peaceful evening with good conversation and good food. I am glad that I was finally able to eat food today, as I was feeling absolutely horrible last night. Whatever it was I had, passed, thankfully. I think I must have sweated it out in my sleep. I had a horrible night's sleep last night, but started to feel a bit better upon waking up this morning. So happy about that. Anyhow, I was able to eat dinner tonight, and I worked on my Mara Shawl. It's coming along very well and I am loving it. It's always nice to get some knitting done surrounded by good friends. I ended up taking a Caramel Fudge Cheese Cake home with me. I was only going to bring home 3 slices (1 for Jamie & I to share tonight, and 2 for tomorrow night (New Year's Eve)), but 3 slices cost 6$ each (18$ total) and the entire cake was 19.95$ so I opted to take the entire cake home for 1.95$ more. Smart decision. Yum! It's just heaven in a cake. I'm a huge fan of cheesecake, and to add in fudge and caramel just makes it 150 times better!

I'm glad the manager got the back door fixed and you found a heater. Sounds awful. Glad to hear you are feeling better. Smart decision to bring home the whole cake. Ouch that can get expensive by the slice.

I agree, cheesecake is one of my fave desserts of all time. I haven't had any in ages though! Hmmm... maybe I'll make one this weekend.
