Ho Ho Ho...Life and all that!

It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air...

Dear Everyone, 

We worked hard, so that we could play harder after...

We put up our tree (only just barely in time!)

Tried new foods...

Took  a picture of Mama and she returned the favor...

Climbed a small mountain....
And finally got some bare essentials plus some extras to make the holidays special... ( the foie gras is Mama's -- she forces me to have it, along with Kale Chips and herbal chai...HELP!

Most of all I am looking forward to a quiet time, long hikes, some uncoordinated dancing to music on Pandora, lots of binge watching of The Flash & Arrow, some home work, time with my family and of course ordering Mama around for food, food and more food...Joy and Peace to all! See you in 2016.

Lots of Love,
K2 (and K2's Mom)

I am a Superwoman!

6.30 AM : Wake up groggy, my decongestants work great at keeping the cough & cold at bay but have a  side effect of wooziness - a couple jumping jacks and a cup of hot water with lemon, ginger, apple cider vinegar & honey later...I feel almost human
7.00-7.30 AM : Email and catch up on work stuff
7.30-8.30 AM : Wake up son, School Hustle - Morning Milk (with breakfast cookies and almonds), Snack, Lunch & hustle son out of the house
8.30AM -1.00 PM : Meetings
1.30 PM : Grab lunch from the Cafe, Grab kid from his chess class at school and drive him for his Annual Health  Checkup (both mom and son got flu shots)
2.30 PM :  Drop off Admission Package at school (rechecked my Parent Essay!)
3.00 - 6.30 PM : Worked some more (kiddo slept soundly)
7.00 PM : Zumba Class
8.15 PM : Dinner (Watch Shark Tank)
9.00 PM-10.00 PM : Catch up on Work & Email
10.00 PM- 11.00 PM : Blog 
Most days are frenzied with activities, conference calls, school hustles, cooked dinners, homework monitoring and so many other things...I listened to a song over the Thanksgiving weekend that really resonated with me and I kept going back to it many times this week (it's been a hard week!)- sending out this song to all you Ladies that need a little "pick me up" this week...or any other week

Cause I'm a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I'm a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes
I'm a Superwoman

And if that doesn't work - I promise ya...a Zumba class (or any class that makes you sweat) will drive the blues away
