60 days into 90

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

The holidays were so enjoyable this year because of changes that were begun in October. I joined a bible study and have remained connected to God. As for food and finances, I cut back the amount and selection this season, offering lesser choices of higher quality, homemade dishes (non-processed!). Financially we used cash but went slightly over our budget for gifts. I began the cleaning regime simply- what can I get done today to make tomorrow more manageable? I was able to let go of the Martha Stewart/Betty Crocker mentality. Exercise? Pfft. I totally ignored it. Emotionally, there was grief and loss after the death of two patients this season due to opiate addiction/alcoholism. Our ten year old schnoodle was put down and it was our first holiday season without our dd, Brianna. Somehow everything seemed to balance itself out and I think it was one of the most relaxed, enjoyable holiday seasons.
