Here is today's excuse:I actually did get out of bed this morning only to discover a horrible storm.
Can't risk death by electrocution! That would not be a good Christmas.
So instead, I watched The Today Show. Did y'all watch it? It was a tearjerker today.
Man oh man.
One story was about this family in California who had gone into the woods to cut down a Christmas tree (very Griswaldy of them, right?) and then got lost for three days. But don't worry! They were found because they spelled out HELP with twigs in the snow! It's a Christmas Miracle!
And this other story was about a 22 year old adopted guy who had been searching for his birth mother for a long time. Turns out they had been working at the EXACT SAME LOWE'S for 8 months. Wow. Isn't that just amazing.
And finally, there were several stories about soldiers coming home and surprising their families for the holidays. If that doesn't make you cry, you have no heart.
They were seriously going for the home run this morning.
But see...if I had been out running, I would not have seen these touching stories. I like to think that I'll be a little bit sweeter today for having watched The Today Show on this stormy day.
It might be a little bit ok that I haven't run since Saturday if I weren't having to constantly battle the temptation of these Christmas goodies:
They win every time. And I seriously did bust my second pair of pants in two weeks. I'm not even kidding. I would never kid about something so serious.
So please leave me some encouraging comments cause Lord knows I need them.
P.S. If you are successful, I might make you those Pioneer Woman Cinnamon Rolls
