I got my Christmas wish this year…. attend midnight mass(10pm) at the Washington, D.C. National Cathedral.

What a beautiful experience that was…. I’m ashamed to say, it’s been a long time since I’ve been to church and this Christmas Eve Mass was wonderful to experience. I sang, I prayed, and I enjoyed the beautiful Sermun.

Afterwards… getting through the parking garage mess, we made it home after midnight. And I have to tell you, that was enough.

Before we left for the mass… around 8:30pm we munched on some Garden Green Salad, Whole Wheat Bread and Hummas for dinner. And that was filling enough to put me right ot bed.

Today, is Christmas… I’d like to catch the new movie, “It’s Complicated”. Should be fun…..

It’s not Christmas as I remember as a child…. I’m in a foreign city (Potomac, MD) with no family and friends. The stockings aren’t hung from the fireplace… and no presents under the non existant Christmas Tree. Mike is Jewish, so he doesn’t celebrate Christmas.:( And so now, I guess I don’t either. But I still plan on going to Midnight(10pm) mass at the National Cathedral in D.C. and then going to morning mass as well.

I also wanted to drive to New York City for the day and maybe hit Serendipity, walk around the Plaza, or eat at the restaurant in the Crysler Building or even catch a midday show?!?!?! But I think Mike has really put the brakes on that idea.

Boy he’s sounding alot like the Christmas Grinch!!!!!

My back is still not 100%… I have more mobility than Sunday, but there’s still pain. So I’m taking it Very Slow!!!!

I did head out this morning for a Tall Starbucks Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte w/Soy and then I stopped off at the French Bakery for a Carrot & Zucchini Muffin, Bran Muff, and a Butter Croissant. I thought I’d start the day off with some sweets for a sour Mike. I ate the Carrot & Zucchini Muffin… it was delicious. Yum!!!! Yum!!!! Yum!!!!

P.S…. I did weigh myself Yesterday Morning and gained back 2lbs… I guess those treats and not working out have made their impact.!!!!:(
