Our holiday has been very low-key. Christmas was fun, and New Year's quiet which is just the way I like it. We've been doing some rearranging in our house, too. I wanted a new storage solution for our games, so we ventured out to Ikea and picked up shelves that got put up over the weekend:
I love them so much. The games are organized into different sections, and we can now see everything all at the same time. Before, we had them in three different places in our media room. Now, they're all along that one wall.
We leave tomorrow for a short trip, though. First to Vegas so that on Friday we can do the three escape rooms Alex wanted for his birthday. Then on Saturday, we head to the Hoover Dam for the FIL. After that, we drive down to Flagstaff so on Sunday we can take the Grand Canyon Railway up to the canyon, where we will then do a two-hour tour. My joints have been pretty bad the past few weeks, so no trekking for us, but it should still be pretty. Then it's back to Vegas to fly home on Monday. Alex will miss the first day back to school, but nothing happens on that day anyway.
My computer is going with me, however, so that I can get some very needed writing done on the car rides. It's going to give me time to get my schedule into place. One of the things I'm going to start concentrating on is strengthening my body. My joints are getting progressively worse, and I have to do whatever I can to help. One of the good things about cleaning our media room, however, was that I found my weights and resistance bands. Those will come in handy with the new plan. Because this living in pain thing sucks. I'm too young for this, damn it.
