Tis the season to be jolly..

Today I spent the day listening to Christmas music and decorating the house for Santa.  I know some people think it is a bit early but I'm not home for Thanksgiving and December is always such a busy month that I felt it was this weekend or I wasn't going to put up the decorations.
 
There is something about the Christmas season that I just love.  The lights and music always bring a smile to my face.  I have lots of plans for the holiday season.  Listening to the Marine Corps Band play Christmas music.  Laying wreathes at Arlington Cemetery.  Seeing the National Tree and all of the other state trees.  Visiting the National Zoo for Zoolights.  Visiting the Botanical Gardens Christmas display and finally Punch and Pie Party (everyone brings a pie and drinks some fun punch) Who knows if I will do all of this but I will certainly try. 
 
I didn't run much this weekend.  I planned on heading to the gym today, but I ended up just being lazy and enjoying the holiday lights at home.  I was going to go tomorrow, but I will be going to see the Redskins play the Eagles and then I will be back home to enjoy the Steelers win over the Ravens.  So I guess this weekend will be the weekend of no working out.
