I really haven't felt like blogging. I skipped weighing myself yesterday because I just didn't feel like it this week. There have been too many cookies consumed and I know that. TOM is here and in addition to constant salty/sweet cravings, I've been super emotional. So emotional, in fact, that this commercial for a local restaurant that I see every year at Christmastime actually made me cry yesterday. Ridiculous, I know. I just was so touched that the tree was helping the star. I think TOM is really getting me down, not to mention there's just not enough time to do all the things I have to. Still need to go out and get my dad's gift tomorrow. Just finished baking a batch of cookies for him and my brother. Now I'm laying on the couch, watching old episodes of Friends, waiting for laundry to dry. Yeah, all freaking 50 loads of it. Our washer is still broken, so after work today and after 3 hours spent driving about 7 miles to go to 2 stores (ridiculous traffic...3 hours?! Really, people? Did no one work today?) I went to the laundromat and ran out of money to dry the clothes. So, they're all clean, but I have to dry them all here. It's taking forever. I was hoping not to stay up too late as we've got a very busy weekend ahead of us. Tomorrow morning, Ben, Rocky, and I are having our Christmas morning together and opening presents, then off to mom's for our traditional Slovak Christmas Eve dinner. After that, we'll stop by my uncle's for a bit (hoping for some compliments from relatives I've not seen in a few months), then to Ben's parents' house to spend the night. We'll wake up there on Christmas morning, have brunch and exchange gifts, then off to daddy's house in the afternoon. So. Much. To. Do. Ugh.
Anyhow, I don't mean to be all complainy. I really just got on to say thanks to my new followers and to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. So, thanks, new followers and if I'm not already following you, be sure to leave your URL in comment!
For everyone celebrating Christmas, I hope you all have a safe and Merry Christmas.
For those celebrating Hanukkah, I hope you're enjoying the Festival of Lights.
For those celebrating Kwanzaa, a joyous one to you.
And for everyone else, have a great weekend.
I've been reading a lot of posts lately about being off track and things of that nature, and I'm as guilty of that as anyone. So, my wish for the New Year is that we can all get back on track, do what we're supposed to, and continue to fight our battles and support each other while doing so. Again, happy holidays to everyone!
