Even nearly a month later, I look back at the insanity that was December and shake my head.
What was I thinking? How did I survive?
Take this week for example…
SUNDAY – Church, followed by Kelly’s company’s holiday party. Ugly Christmas sweater attire, of course:
One more, just because it still makes me laugh:
MONDAY – Work and meetings in the morning, followed by a flight to DC. Meet up with my uncles for visiting and dinner, then off to the hotel to
work and rest network with colleagues followed by work then a short sleep:
TUESDAY – all day meetings, working through breakfast and lunch, with a late dinner and working in the hotel room. Missing Kelly desperately.
WEDNESDAY – all day meetings, working through breakfast and lunch, with a slightly delayed late evening flight home.
THURSDAY – Leadership Plano’s December session. Spotted a random work of public art attacked by the Christmas spirit:
And manufacturing plant tour haute couture attire – electrostatic discharge strips to protect the sensitive components being built in the plant:
FRIDAY – Dinner date with Kelly:
Followed by the Michael W Smith and Amy Grant Christmas concert.
SATURDAY – packet pick up for the Dallas Marathon.
Followed by the Andrew Peterson Behold the Lamb concert.
SUNDAY – the Dallas Marathon!
It’s amazing to think that I survived all of this – with a PR in the marathon to boot. I told my training group, the Whinos, that my pre-race strategy was “too stressed to care.” #truth
