my placemat

Monday, January 06, 2014

the best christmas gift i got this year was a placemat.

what makes it the best one? first, it was a total surprise, totally unexpected, from a colleague of mine. now we don't exchange gifts as a habit around here, there would be no end to it all if we did. and second, it was very thoughtful, and very personal.

you all know me... cat lady... well, this placemat is a quilty pattern of cats, in just wonderful christmas-y colors, deep pine green, bright red, gold and white. really nice. it can be used on either side, with a different pattern on each.

and i swear, it's going to help me through this challenge. i have decided that for the next ten weeks, i'll be sticking to a routine. three meals a day, every five hours, up to half an hour each... and then basta! the placemat gets cleared off the table. no picking, no grazing, over and out.

and where does it go in the meantime? where else... right next to the computer, where georgie, sunshine or mimi plunk themselves while i'm sparking! i didn't think i'd have it to myself now, did i?
