After a long, late and very fun evening with some girlfriends, 7am came too quickly. I couldn't seem to fall back asleep depsite my persistance in telling my brain to turn off, off, OFF! I decided to tackle some holiday baking first. Banana chocolate chip bread. And holy crap is it awesome! I made 8 of those before moving onto laundry. 4 loads. I hate freaking doing laundry. Next up, painting. Mike and his dad had retiled both fireplaces with some beautiful stacked slate tile. I was in charge or repainting the mantle and the sides. It looks spectacular. That was proceeded by cleaning the entire house. yay me. After that, grocery shopping. Came home and worked out. 20 miles on the trainer while watching the 2009 IM World Championship in Kona. It's hard to ride and cry but I am extremely pumped up for Ironman Florida next November. Cleaned myself up and cooked dinner for Mike - homemade burritos. Before I knew it, it was 8:35pm and I am thoroughly exhausted but as I look back on my day, I feel so incredibly satsified. What a great day!
