Trying to be Awesome-

Monday, December 29, 2014

Only 3 days left on 2014-----
I CAN make them count---
It's almost DREADMILL time----my 30 minutes on the machine-trying to get the steps up----
Yesterday himself took down the outdoor decorations--I did the indoor stuff--
Christmas is a lot of work-----brightens up December however!

As a kid, this time of year was different---not as much food----I never remember overeating-----seems children don't do that!
Lord Love A Duck---Adults to-day are faced with so much chocolate---

Maybe a good New Year Resolution , would be, to eat more ---raw-----vegetables , that is----
Maybe another resolution , will be ---to eat at home more-----to cook more----to eat Kale----broccoli-----lettuce--
And........to hug himself a few times a day--to remind him that I still love him, even though he kinda drives me crazy as he is going through ""selective deafness"!
--only 3 days to prepare for 2015!-

    As I remember it, as a kid, I was so busy doing stuff that the only time I was around food was when Mom called us to the table for the meal.... Now I am around food all the time, it seems, between determining what is needed from the store and planning what to prepare for a meal, preparing meals, and cleaning up from a meal... I spend a whole lot more time with food on my mind and in my sights.

    You know, I don't seem to remember candy being so readily available when I was a kid... and especially not chocolate. It truly was a TREAT, meaning once in a great while. If mom bought a snickers bar at the grocery, which she did maybe once in a month... it had to be split 3 ways among the three kids.

    No wonder as kids we weren't heavy!

    Know I'm late with my responses today... hope you sparked a FINE Monday!

    I agree that children don't overeat at Christmas. I wonder what makes us change as we grow up?

    Eating mor veggies is a really good resolution. And hugging himself during the day and telling and showing him you love him and just how much he means to you is so good for both of you. You are so awesome and so like a true friend. Hoping you have a great New Year.

    You're already awesome, Lynda. We can all improve, and we should keep trying to improve... but it's also important to recognize how far you've come already.
    hugs, Gail

    OMG . . . selective deafness . . . definitely affects husbands! LOL Hugs are a good antidote for both you and him (and me and my himself!)

    You are awesome already!!

    No question about it.

    You are just wanting to let out that inner awesome a bit, right?

    I've bought new Christmas outdoor lights -- LED, on sale and free to me with PC points. So when this year's decorations come down (many many burnt-out bulbs) they can go directly into the garbage!!

    You don't have to try to be awesome. You already are. Awesome Lynda!!

    I don't remember having chocolate in the house much growing up. It was a special treat to get a few pennies to buy penny candy at the local candy shop and not all that often. We always did have a lot of food at Christmas though. Both parents had lots of siblings who would visit over the holidays and it was my mom's lot in life to make sure everyone had food...ham, potato salad (lots of it) and coleslaw. She made the best of all that and sadly I never learned how to make either her potato salad or coleslaw because my himself does not like mayo so why bother to learn how to make it.

    All of our food is pretty much gone. I made stuffed shells, baked tortellini, chicken parmesan and sausage and peppers and my son in law made a big dent in all of it. So did my son's girlfriend who professes to not like pasta but she sure did scarf plenty of the stuffed shells and tortellini. I am so over the ham I made on Christmas Day and now back to trying to figure out what to make for dinner tonight!!

    Selective hearing? I won't go there because you already know I have one of those myself!!! emoticon

    Can hardly believe it is almost 2015. Where did all that time go???

    have a happy Monday!!! And believe you are already awesome because you are!!!
