No more holidays please

in

I am officially holidayed out. No holiday letdown, but holiday burnout. I've eaten enof food, drank enof wine and spent enof money. If i could I'd like to get on one of those boats that go and offer medical help to those who need it in foreign countries. Mother duties prevent me from running away, that and a mortgage. So now we have to relearn how to eat; as in not expecting each meal to end with dessert or begin with wine and cheese and crackers. I am purging my house tomorrow, bringing the brownies that i forgot to put out yesteday to work; and also that box of unopened chocolates . No temptation please, yes I am weak(i have the backbone of jellyfish, don't tempt me.) So nowwe are free and clear til Valentines Day, and I don't think I have to worry about getting a pound of chocolates for that one. Then if we skip the Easter chocolate bunnies and jelly beans we can sail into swimsuit season without those extra pounds, one could only hope.

I know the feeling....we took all the house decorations down today, even the tree. It was sad but the lack of clutter is a renewal. Still, we went out to eat and when we got home....no Christmas lights on the bushes and gutters...kind of desolate...We never escape celebrations,as we have three birthdays in January...one is a 21st...
Have a great Winter 06.

melly - "Step away from the chocolates" - just get rid of them, bring them to work, give them to strangers.
