Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

Friday, November 24, 2006



Today's an extra special Happy Dance Friday because not only is it Friday but I have off from work too. However, due to the fact that I engaged in extracirucular eating yesterday, I may have to Happy Dance faster and longer today in order to shed those 3 million and a half calories that I think may have snuck their way into my mouth yesterday. Of course the decision to do so was not mine alone. How can one resist the wonderfulness of all that food and desserts just staring at me from the table? I couldn't and I didn't! So there! A rebel with a cause here!

I had a great Thanksgiving! Hope yours was spite of the fact that there's one of those relatives in every family.

(Forgot to mention that althought I had a marvelous day, it took me over 3 hours to drive home last night, and it should have taken 25 minutes! I've never seen so much traffic and I have no clue why. )

woohooo!! hurrah for the holidays! Sorry about the drive though...

Ditto on the over eating! I'll burn my calories today by running into the garage, out to the shed, back upstairs and out onto the balcony to hang Christmas lights and decorations and then repeating the cycle every ten minutes. Plus I can barely type because I sprained a finger playing football and it's enlarged and black and that why they call today Black Friday??

Have a great weekend!

The calories did not sneak into my mouth.. I welcomed them wholeheartedly!

Dan said...

Yes, I have one of those relatives as well. I'm sending her over to your feast next year. ;)

I will join you in spirit as you dance those calories off, I have a lot to shed myself.

We had very similar Thanksgivings. My relative from hell invited herself over three hours before dinner, then showed up early, and did nothing but bitch. I sat her on my deaf side. The food more than made up for the remote buzz that I ignored as I asked about the food. You inspired me again Odat and I want to thank you for that. Now, if I could only learn to type.
