Back in the Swing of Things

Ok, this is my attempt at getting back in the swing of things this week and actually blogging about my daily activities. This week has brought what I expected the German winter weather to be like. I don't think we have seen the sun since we left England on Friday and it is definitely a bummer. While it isn't all that cold yet, the dreary rainy mess is definitely going to get old quickly.

So, for the past few weeks I have been trying to get back into a routine of going to the gym. Just admiting that gives me a headache. I was so good about going to the gym with Deaner back when we lived in Atlanta and I was even pretty good about it while we lived in the hotel for 5 months. But once we moved in here I just have not been motivated. At first, I didn't blame myself since I was working in the house 10 hours a day painting etc but lately I have not had THAT much work to do. So, I started trying to meet Deaner at the gym after he got off work each day. This did not go very well. I pretty much dreaded going to the gym all day long and it really hung over my head all day long. We talked about it yesterday and decided that I should just start going to the gym in the mornings and getting it out of the way so that I have the rest of my day to enjoy. I feel a little guilty about not waiting and going with my husband in the afternoons but it was making me too cranky. I have been in the mornings the past two days and so far so good. Let's just see if it sticks!

I have been getting ready all week for our next round of guests. Deaner had a college friend in town this weekend and it was nice getting to see him. Deaner's dad and stepmom fly in on Friday morning and I can't wait to see them! Deaner has to work on Friday (he is taking off the whole next week) so I will be fetching them from the airport on Friday morning. I can't wait for them to see our house and I have been cleaning obsessively for their arrival! We are leaving on Saturday and staying the night in a Castle. I am really looking forward to this. Sunday we are going to make our way to Southern Germany and we are staying at the Edelweiss Lodge in the Bavarian Alps. I am really excited because I know how beautiful it is going to be and I can't wait to take pictures. I hope that the weather cooperates!

Now it is time to go shower. I've been putting it off since I have been cleaning but I can't put it off any longer! Exactly 1 month from today we will be on a plane to Atlanta for Christmas! I really can't wait. I hope that the time flies between then and now!

I can't wait to see the pictures of the castle. Good luck with the gym thing. I need to some motivation myself.
