I’ll say it before anyone else has the opportunity: I was a Humbug this year. It doesn’t help to apologize. We all lived through it and in the end I did pull out some Christmas spirit.
Christmas Eve is really our busy day and except for eating Way too much I got through it. I’ll give more detail on Monday in Week in Review but we had three food related events on Tuesday which had me at the far reaches of my Points after breakfast. That was my own fault. Food wise it went down hill from there, but Christmas Spirit wise it went up. That was actually more important. I can handle the aftermath of the food. I needed to pump up the Spirit and it improved greatly as the day and evening went on.
Christmas day is low-key for us. Sleeping in was a good idea and Ralph and I both took advantage of that. Dinner out with Ele and Jim was fun as always in our annual recreation of the Chinese restaurant scene from A Christmas Story.
It’s always fun and we go to a really great restaurant. No smiling duck, Thank Goodness!
Now I’m looking toward all those projects that I set aside as I moped around prior to Christmas. First I’ll be spending most of the next two days helping Gail and Alice pack up for Florida. I’ll get Lots of exercise to help me work off everything I’ve eaten over the last two days. Boy do I need it!
So this is me, facing the day with a positive attitude and a few thing circled in the sale papers. I’m waffling (something I’m Very good at) over whether I should buy something or not. We’ll see how that goes.
