Zoo Lights and Christmas Vacation Recap

This has been an amazing Christmas vacation. We stayed home, and I didn’t have to deal with Christmas traveling, traffic, or the stress of staying with family. Instead, Piglet and I enjoyed leisurely mornings at home, and then he spent shorter days at daycare, while I worked from home doing my data entry job, and then also got a bunch of house projects done around here.

I repainted the master bedroom and the guest room. I also swapped out electrical outlets I’d missed, did touch up paint on the baseboards, and repainted my dresser and ceiling fan. I even learned how to use the nail gun, and made a reading corner for Piglet’s room. I love that he has so many books! It looks like a library in there. I will post pictures soon!

Piglet and I both took care of routine health check ups, complete with a super sad flu shot and then blood draw for Piglet. He was such a brave little boy, and he was rewarded with a cookie the size of his head, followed by sushi. I love that I can bribe this kid with sushi! He’s an expensive date, but he’s worth it.

Match was able to get the day after Christmas off, and we met up with Old Married Couple for a trip to the Oregon Zoo to see the Zoo Lights. They were everything I remembered from when I was a kid, and more. I loved seeing the zoo at night, and it was even better experiencing it with Piglet.

The two weeks went by super fast, and I went back to work on the 3rd of January. I cannot believe an entire month has gone by and I forgot to submit this post! Yikes. This new year I feel like we’ve been in constant motion, and it hasn’t stopped!

There’s even more to recap on, but I’m exhausted and I have to hit the ground running again tomorrow. I miss you, any of you out there who still read this!!



    This year is definitely flying by! I’m not sure where January went?!
