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