Well, if you’ve been following my story, I have been enduring a severly bruised tailbone.  I am not 100% better, but I have been able to do a lot more than usual. 

I took all of last week off from exercises because it was very painful.  I am taking today off as well since it is still very sore.  Saturday afternoon I stopped at Sam’s Club to get some water and I made my left glute hurt from using that muscle to lift the bottles into the back of the van.  Ugh!  I need more rest.

Hubby took me out to see the new movie Australia on Saturday.  It was an awesome movie, however, I don’t recommend seeing it if you have a bruised tailbone.  LOL  Two and a half hours of sitting was tough to endure.  I sure wasn’t thinking when I agreed to that!

Today my two younger girls completed a lapbook on Cinderella.  It was a great study on forgiveness and pumpkins.  It sure amazes me how people can read an ordinary childrens book and find deep messages in them.  I sure haven’t been blessed with that gift. 

Thanksgiving was a wonderful holiday for us.  We had planned to drive down to Terre Haute and stay in a hotel, but due to my “rear troubles” we stayed home and had our usual Thanksgiving dinner.  I did make some slight changes to our dinner so it was a little more healthy.  We didn’t have a big dessert offering.  My 11 year old made a light, sugar free pumpkin cake and we had plenty of whole wheat bread (Ugh!).  I love turkey and this year we had one of the biggest yet.  It didn’t fit very well in the huge container I use for brining.  The legs were sticking out!  It was an awesome turkey.  Surprisingly, we have almost eaten the entire bird already.  Wow!

Well, I hope to hear some updates on everyone’s fitness plans for 2009.  I am putting together a 12 week challenge to go along with the launch of my new book.  Let me know if you are interested!
