Here we are halfway through the month. I can’t believe we have almost arrived at Christmas. It will be here and gone before we know it.
In a lot of ways I feel completely and totally in control. I have 1 gift for Marc that was shipped yesterday, but other then that, all my shopping is done, wrapped and organized.
My house is pretty clean so there won’t be a lot to do before having everyone over for Xmas Eve. Yesterday, I bought everything that won’t spoil that I’m going to make for Xmas and Xmas Eve.
Even with my exercise I’m okay. After a very long day yesterday, I still got my ass downstairs and was running on the treadmill at 6:30 at night!
But then there’s my eating. It’s the only thing I can’t get under control. And while I’m okay not LOSING from now until January 1st. I don’t want to gain a ton, either and that appears to be where I’m headed. For a few days I’m great and then – well, not so much.
I am aching for a change. My wonderfully beautiful and talented Aunt Karla posted a pic to Facebook of one of the rooms she decorated in her house for Xmas. It is gorgeous – like something out of a magazine. And my Uncle Kevin, who is slightly less beautiful, but just as talented (), commented that she should open her own decorating business. And I jumped on that saying we could start a business together, because I LOVE decorating.
I allowed myself for a moment to reflect on if I only had the courage to truly do something like that. To pick up, move south and start a whole new adventure!! I WISH I was that type of person. Because I really feel like a need something different in my life. Part of it is the weather – I keep telling myself that just another week, and we start getting more light.
Could I really be having a mid-life crisis?
So instead I made one little change – one thing that I had the courage to do that is no big whoop to most but to me?
Yes, I went red for the holidays!
