The Honeymoon's Over - or something like that . . .

My kids have been out of school for twelve days already and they have four more to go.  We've had a house guest since last Monday and we seem to be running out of space.  The lights on the Christmas tree aren't sparkling quite as brightly as they were earlier in the month.  I'm afraid the Merry has gone out of our Christmas.

The holiday hangover is starting to subside.  Starting.  And I hardly drank during the holidays.  But I've consumed more than my weight in sugar cookies, hot chocolate and pumpkin bread.  Salads have been safe from me for days!!  It's a thing of the past.  All of the cookies, the cake, the candy - gone.  In the trash tonight.  And I'm gonna clean my house and get back to my blog.  Aaaah, I feel better already.




To my Summer ~ I've missed you too.  Let's catch up soon.  In real life.  Love you

I remember those Christmas hangovers without drinking :)
This year we had enough everything but didn't overeat or overdrink. We feel good!
Tonight we eat well and drink a bottle of champagne. Sorry, sparkling wine!
That's it. And soon it's year 2010 -
Happy New Year!

I haven't taken down my Christmas things yet as I am afraid I will get post Christmas depression... but at the same time I am almost getting ready to move on... just a few more days.

Oh, I love those little cookies with the kisses in them. YUM.

You threw your cookies and candy out?! Good for you. Every year I say I'm going to do that and then the night before I'm gorging myself on all of them until they're gone. I actually had to order a Jillian Michael's video this year to combat my weight gain! :(
