Today is Christmas and it is the most holiest of days for my family and me. It felt somewhat odd having Christmas on a Wednesday especially with me having been off on vacation in Disney last week. I returned from my vacation to the “happiest place on earth” Friday night and had the weekend to msyelf. I then worked Monday and Tuesday and now had off today for the holiday. Tomorrow I return to work for two days before having the weekend off. So it has been a strange schedule to say the least.

Christmas Eve took an interesting turn as my family and I were ready to head to church when one of my family members injured themselves. It was a minor injury but enough to derail our plans to go to church. After getting things settled I headed to the gym for a workout later in the night. Christmas day started with presents with the family. Santa was too good to me, as always. Among other things I received a Yoda light-up toothbrush, a Mickey Mouse USB drive for the computer, a Peanuts statue that is really cool, 3 Star Wars Hawthorne village sets, a Snoopy singing plush, and Christmas ornaments. So it was a great day present wise.

After opening presents, I got ready and went to the gym for a workout. Surprisingly there were about 10 others at the gym. After my workout, I headed home in time for family dinner. We had fresh fruit, ham, steamed vegetables, green beans, and sausage filling. I did well for dessert and only had a single cookie but then had some more fruit. It was then time for more presents with family and this time I got a Peter Pan statue, a Star Wars vehicle, and three Star Wars ornaments (R2D2, Yoda, and Darth Vader). After helping to clean up it was time for a nap as I was exhausted. Now I’m sitting getting caught up on “Almost Human” which I am three weeks behind on but am enjoying and I had dinner (made one of my frozen pizzas).

All in all it was a great Christmas. From a Weight Watchers stand point I only went over by 1 point today but I still had all 49 of my weekly points and have not used any of the points I earned via activity (going to the gym).

The other major thing that I have worked on since I have been back from vacation is planning my next vacations. I am happy to say that I am officially going to Walt Disney World four times in 2014 at this time, but it will likely be five trips as it is too early to book a trip for next December. We will be going to Disney the following dates:

Saturday, February 22 - Tuesday, February 25—staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge

Monday, April 14 - Saturday, April 19—staying at Old Key West

Friday, September 5 - Monday, September 8—staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge

Sunday, October 5 - Friday, October 10—staying at Saratoga Springs

I am very excited for these upcoming trips and by the end of January I should have the final trip, one for December 2014, booked.

Have a great week!
