Celebrate! Enjoy the moments!! Enjoy the moments of peace and the moments of family chaos!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It is a joyous holiday! Our kid and grandkids will be back in a couple hours and we will celebrate some more.

(Today they are eating their big meal at the MIL/other grandmother's house. We had Christmas dinner here last eve. Today I'll serve mostly leftovers. Niece and nephew enjoyed enough they are coming back for leftovers today, too!)

So, I'm celebrating the holiday -- and I recognize I did good yesterday -- good BIG cooking and moderate eating. And I tried to send all the temptations home with guests, but didn't succeed totally. But I'm not too scared of the leftovers. I'm motivated. I'll do okay. Getting more confident. Love it!!

    So glad you did well too. I passed on all the fat, sugar stuff. I will continue to not let the leftovers get me either.
Here's to you and I for being strong.

We got this.
Happy New Year Marsha!

    You did better than I did. I succumbed to the call of a rich potato dish and the dessert table last night. It was an enjoyable excess, but today will be better on the calories in vs. out.

It's funny that the moments of family chaos at Christmas become beloved family stories years later. Enjoy the family time however it comes.
