Bloggin' time, bloggin' time, across the U.S.A., bloggin' time, bloggin' time, yeah yeah yay!
Yes, people, it's Sunday night, and you know what that means! There already was a post about Black Friday, which some of you all enjoyed, but that's not knocking me off track!
Our friends who braved late-night mob scenes and come home with their hard-won bounty, without spending too much booty, may be ready for the holiday season. But are we as ready as they are?
I don't mean, have you bought all your presents yet. I already said that can be done next week, if you're so inclined. When I say ready, I don't mean whether you've gained all you need to gain. I mean, have you gotten rid of everything you need to get rid of?
Have you gotten rid of the clothes that are too small to fit you? Or, if you're a runner like me, have you gotten rid of the clothes that are too large to fit you? Either donate them or chuck them.
Did you make good on all those New Years' Resolutions you made in January? Or at least two of them? Cross them off your list!
Was there a conflict with someone? Is it no longer happening? Are you still replaying it in your head, like you're in the team's projection room? Time to dump it and make room for next year's episodes!
Are there friends on Facebook who ignore you? Are there other people who IM or e-mail you when you don't have the time or the inclination to chat? That's why some genius invented the Unfriend button, and some other genius invented the Block button -- toss 'em!
We're heading towards the finish line of 2011, people. Like I said in an earlier entry, we don't need anyone or anything riding piggy back on our shoulders, weighing us down and planting negative and self-hating thoughts in our heads if we're running a race. Lose the unnecessary baggage! Throw it in the garbage! You'll hit that finish line so fast you won't know you had it in you!!! You don't need any of that crapola in 2012, so why hold onto it?
So here comes December, the last leg of this race -- make it a good one . . . and have a happy holiday season, no matter how you celebrate it!
Don't forget to comment!
