I suppose the nice thing about the stomach flu is that
it doesn't stick around for very long.
(not exactly true with a big family- but so far so good)
I felt so much better today,
so I got myself up and out of the house by 5:15am.
I drove to the gym to run on the treadmill-
because of the darkness outside and the fact that it was 3 degrees.
8 miles done and I felt great.
I haven't had a really good run in a while, so yay!
Everyone and their mother had the same plan- the gym was packed.
(I just put together that it is the first week of the new year-
the gym is always packed for the first few weeks of a new year)
So now I will share some pics of our Oregon holiday vacation-
fun for everyone!
It is a 12 hour drive with 7 people in a minivan...
loaded down with all of our everyday necessities AND Christmas stuff.
We do this trip a lot, so we are pretty good at it.
The husband drives the whole way,
so I fed him his Cafe Rio burrito...
(he loves this picture)
NatureBox sent me their December box of snacks to try,
so I had that to munch on for the trip.
(review of this stuff to come later!)
It doesn't really matter how used to the drive we are-
12 hours is still a long, long drive...
but we made it- and with only 3 stops.
It was all worth it to finally see that gray Oregon sky...
I am in the extreme minority and absolutely love overcast weather.
I would take overcast over bright blue and sunny almost any day.
We spent a few days at the beach before Christmas.
It was cold and overcast there, too-
but still beautiful!
I will stop here, because I want to build up all
of the anticipation for the rest of our Oregon Christmas trip pictures ;).
You know you just can't wait.
