Amid a sea of wrapping paper, presents, and leftover party food, I sat quietly in the chair in the corner simply happy to be off my feet.
The pre-party cleaning was done.
The cooking and the baking were over.
The presents were all opened, and the festivities had ended.
I had made a conscious decision that for one day I was going to reward all my holiday efforts with a day of nothing.
I’ve made myself this promise of nothing before, and for one reason or another I’ve always taken a break for a few hours, but then I end up running around before the end of the day.
Not this time.
No, this time all the stars have aligned, and my intentions of doing nothing were more than just words.
What do you get when you have a mountain of Christmas party leftovers, PMS, and a drawer full of stretchy pants?
Well, sort of…
It’s me sitting on my ass, eating cake, and letting the elastic in my pants do its job.
So lay off me! I’m tired, premenstrual, and starving!
I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday and that you’re enjoying a relaxing post-holiday weekend (and that wherever you are, you’re enjoying some cake)!
