I'm free!!!

What a weekend!!  I helped my mom make Christmas treats, went to a play, visited a brand new grocery store opening, finished Christmas shopping, and woke up early for my first "official" Great Aloha Run training.  This was a L-O-N-G weekend and I probably couldn't have done it all but I don't have work for the next two weeks!!!  I work for the State and for the past couple of years we've had to take furloughs and the last two weeks in December are part of it.  I'm so excited... don't have anything planned but just to have the time off is GREAT!!!

I'm free!!

Friday night I went over to my parents' house to help my mom make Christmas goodies.  And when I say make I mean use store bought goodies and decorate them.  We chocolate-dipped oreo's, red vines, pretzel sticks, and cookies... it was so much fun I kept asking my mom for more stuff to dip!

One of the best parts of visiting my parents (besides seeing my family) is I get to see this old lady...

... my old dog Dustee.  She's 14 years old and my first dog ever.  When I moved out of my parents' house, I couldn't take her with me cause even though I moved into a pet-friendly condo, she's not dog friendly so it was going to be too hard to worry about running into other dogs in the hallways and elevators.  But my parents live super close by so I see her often.

Saturday Anthony and I walked down the street to visit the grand opening of a new Safeway.  It's the biggest in Hawaii but I wasn't that impressed. 

This one didn't have a lot of the things another Safeway several miles away has - like a salad bar, hot bar, bulk items like nuts and grains, and a nut-butter station.  It does have a TON of selection/variety so can't complain about that.

Saturday afternoon I attend a play put on by our local theater... Cinderalla!  (No pictures, I forgot my camera in a different bag).  It was good, but since it was based on the original Rodgers and Hammerstein (instead of Disney) I missed all the cute Disney-esque qualities.

Sunday I woke up early for my first GAR training (you can read about it here).  So how'd it go? Hint: it went awesome!

Here's to another great week - work-free!!!
