It's go TIME!

My most productive hour by far today was after coaching.
I returned home about 10:15 pm, and went nuts. That's the only plausible explanation.
I vacuumed the lower level, gathered all garbage, swept the 2nd level, did the dishes, put away all the laundry, shovelled the driveway, and wiped down one bathroom.
I feel great. It took me just under an hour and a half.
I realize lots of people do housework on a regular basis and have been doing so for years, but man do I feel like superwoman!
Coaching-wise, I'm smack dab in the middle of report cards and assessing right now, and I spent all morning sitting on my arse trying to find a nice 'original' comment for each skater. (After the first twenty you really just run out of variations of 'good job, keep it up!')
But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and only a week and half left until christmas break! Yee ha!
I love coaching, and I do feel lucky to have my passion be my career, but man do I value any vacation time I have to just not think about it for a bit.
In other news I had a wonderful much needed lunch date with Grandpa on Monday, and enjoyed the time just chatting.
I'm looking forward to meeting lil' miss Isabelle Spence on Friday night. I can't believe I've gone almost a month without meeting her!
I haven't even started thinking about christmas yet. I am aware that is fast approaching, but I will do as I have done almost every year, and do all my shopping last minute.
I actually enjoy it. Normally, I'm not a people person I don't do crowds. Mainly because I'm child sized and easily lost, but that's neither here nor there.
But the hustle and bustle time of year is a lot of fun for me. Usually Cheyanne and I go shopping around the 22nd and immerse ourselves in the fun of it all, heading down to Chinook, right in the heart of the insanity.
Can't wait to do it again!
I think that's all I have for now.
Seeing as how I have coaching in the morning, I should probably header to bed soon. All my productiveness has energized me though. We'll see what happens when my head hits the pillow.
Night all!
