Well, we seem to have made it through another Christmas. My body already feels as it has gone through an “extreme makeover” with all the stomach engorging food and hi-caloric drinking I have partaken in. Sure, I did it on my own accord with reckless abandon, and enjoyed every bite and gulp. Now, we have a week between major holidays, and New Years Eve will bring another evening of engorging. My pants are already getting tighter, and I dread what will happen after the holidays. I don’t make impossible to keep resolutions, but I am going to behave myself this week!
Even though there is a lot of stress at this time of the year the holiday season is a chance to relax and have some fun with friends and family. I’m still doing last minute Christmas shopping, decorating, and all the other duties attributed to the holidays but still find time to blow off some steam and kick back. It’s party time!
I just don’t get this crazy world. The things that go on and the evil that men do seems to have no meaning or reason. We are constantly barraged with incidents and images of horrific crimes against humanity. There seems to be no end to it. There is an old saying that history repeats itself, and this was a sad recurrence indeed. After the shootings we were subjected to yesterday it makes one wonder if their faith in humanity is warranted. Mine is shaken but I still do believe there is more good in people than those with bad intentions.
Oh crap! With all the hoopla surrounding the magical date of 12-12-12 that we were all paying attention to I just realized that there are only eleven more shopping days until Christmas, and I really have not started yet. Sure, I have picked up a few things here and there but nothing to make a dent in the list I have mentally placed in my head. It’s giving me a pounding headache already just thinking about it.
