So, I had a fantastic Holiday schmear — from Thanksgiving in New Mexico, through shopping and preparing, through Holiday parties, through Christmas here in San Diego, through the Mid-lantic swing after Christmas until New Year's Day.
About the only thing that I can think of as a downside was that I really got out of my exercise routine — no running and no tennis. So, I was happy this morning to get out and play tennis with my friend Jeff for the first time since Thanksgiving (at least). We typically have tried to keep a schedule of playing on Thursday nights and Sunday mornings — but between holidays, travel, a little rain, and some illness — we've been unable to play.
So it was with great joy and a little trepidation (because of not playing for 6 or 7 weeks) that we got back out there at the Rancho Penasquitos Tennis Center.
We warmed up A LOT — and with a Santa Ana wind coming down the canyon — it was a blustery blustery day!! — our warm-ups looked like some sort of bad circus act. But I have to say that I was pretty happy with our play once we got started. We played only one set — the long warm-up, long games, a family commitment for Jeff and the impending Eagles game — Jeff winning 6-3.
Hopefully, we can get back on track for more times "on" than "off" this year. I wonder if I'll feel this happy when I go out for my first run since Thanksgiving this week?

Steve, I really enjoyed your blog about storing all your "stuff", but the toaster
oven???? How can you survive? Sounds like you didn't make the decisions.
The decision was TWO to ONE on the toaster oven. You should have seen his face.
I was GANGED UP ON!!!
