• Another 100 Days of Good Karma: Day 163 (A Weekend with Family)



    Sunday, December 21, 2014

    Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today:  0.00 miles;  Running Total: 91.52 miles)

    Day 163 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.

    We spent the weekend with family.

    My in-laws held a barn party where family came in from all over Texas.  After we got to the barn, the kids disappeared with their cousins and I didn’t see them for the rest of the night.

    This isn't even all of us.  Two families (eight people in all) are missing from this picture.

    Immediate family only, and this isn’t even all of us. Two families (nine people in all) are missing from this picture.

    We got a surprise:  Santa showed up!  Connor wouldn’t go near him at first.  I thought he was scared, but Justin got the real scoop.

    “Connor, don’t you want to meet Santa?”

    “Daddy, that’s not Santa.  That’s a man.  You don’t see the real Santa because he’s at the North Pole.”

    Justin blinked, stunned.  He recovered better than I would have though.

    “Well maybe he isn’t, but I bet he knows the real Santa.  Do you want to miss this opportunity to maybe get a message to Santa about that skateboard you want?”

    Connor weighed the logic of this, then finally, grudgingly decided to go sit on Santa’s lap so I could take a picture.

    Only Connor would be pissed at a Santa Claus for being a poser.

    That Santa guy... what a poser.

    The imposter.

    And then the final excitement:  It rained a lot here over the weekend and we got stuck in the mud.

    We tried putting stuff under the tires to gain traction.  We dug ourselves a pretty good rut before finally asking Justin’s step dad to haul us out with the tractor.



    Today’s silver lining:  A great weekend with family. 

    Even if I do have to get my car washed today.

    Happy holidays!

    What’s your silver lining today?  I love comments!
