Last night, I went to the beer tender with my little reindeer glass to pour myself a wee bit of brew to sit down and relax. I got the message as the thing only sputtered and spit out beige foam at me....it's over--the holidays are officially d.o.n.e. All the delicious cheeses have been eaten, there are no pistachios left in the cabinet, Christmas cookies.....well, their sorta stale at this point. Sigh. I even went back to the pool this week.
Welcome January blahs.
But, I'm not gonna take that lying down. Nope. I'm moving ahead, planning for the upcoming year. I started buying sheets and towels during the January white sales to get a jump on Em's college stash. I hired a painter to come in and brighten up the family room. We even started talking about this summer's plans and what we hope to accomplish in the way of fun. No use sitting around being gloomy, right?
And then we got our first paychecks with the increase in our social security deductions. (insert needle-scratching-the-record sound) Yea. OUCH.
I'M TRYING TO BE POSITIVE HERE, PEOPLE!! Really. I am.
Did anyone notice the days are getting longer....?(OMG, they ARE longer!)
