Flying South

We head off to Florida today, well tonight actually. Our flight is 9pm so I can only imagine how it's going to go with two tired girls, especially if there are delays.

I can't wait for some warm weather (relatively's going to be 11 celcius in Orlando today!) and relaxation. All in all, it's been a good holiday season so far. Yesterday I took the girls to my brother's house while Adam taught his spinning class and then after Little A's nap, we decided to conduct an experiment and take them to a movie. We went to see Yogi Bear (don't bother seeing this unless you are going for your kids!) and it was a hit with Big A (no scary parts), who has only been to one movie in the theatre so far (Tangled) and ended up having to leave for 20 minutes because one part was too frightening for her to watch. Little A behaved better than expected, although she didn's stay still for more than 30 seconds at a time. I chased her around the theatre most of the time, but there was another family with a little boy her age and he was doing the same thing, so I didn't feel so bad.

I saw my family doctor on Thursday and she was very skeptical of the podiatrist's assessment. She felt circulation in my feet is good enough and does not warrant a trip to see a vascular surgeon. Her prescription? Retail therapy: a good pair of winter boots. She recommended I get Sorel boots and she should know, she spent a year practicing medicine in the Yukon, and that's what she wore for -50 weather. Looks like we'll be checking out the Boxing Day sales for shoes...

We'll be back just in time for our New Years Party. Have a good week!
