Man Meals Monday

So this week's eating isn't super exciting. Being out town and the time change and Rett being gone gave me little motivation for creative dinners. So the trusty standbys it is. This Pork Tenderloin and Broccoli is so easy and so good. There are never any leftovers. Tomorrow night is put up the Christmas tree night. I promise I'm not one of those people who are obsessed with Christmas. In fact, we are the total opposite. We only do gifts for our kids and what we would have spent on everyone else goes to a family we know who needs it more than we do. SO much easier than shopping for people who don't need anything. I only have a tree in the house. Not decorations in every room. This is because I'm lazy. I have zero desire to take everything down and if I only have a tree I'm more likely to do it before March. Yes, one year I had it up until March. I didn't decorate for 4 years after that. The only reason I started last year was because Jake was old enough to ask about our tree that didn't exist so I bought a new one. Also, if I'm going to put a tree up I want it up for more than a month. So right after Halloween it is! All this to say we had pancakes and bacon last year while decorating the tree and Jake remembered and wants to do it again so that is what we are doing. I guess that is how traditions are born.

While running at the gym this morning an elderly man commented that my hair moves around a lot. This reminded me of high school cross country. My teammates used to tell me that I looked like I was chasing an ice cream truck when I ran. This was not because I was thrilled with life at the moment. It was because I was trying to get to the finish line as fast as I could so I could fall over and die. The happy face and swinging hair came when I saw the finish line.
Look who figured out how to use Jake's lightsaber
