Christmas Carnage

I'm back.
I made it through the holidays. I'm not going to pretend that I didn't buy anything. I know I did. I actually stopped caring at some point. The consumption monster had me in it's teeth.
It started by buying gifts for people. Then I spent my gift card from my birthday. Oh, new clothes smell, how I had missed you!

Before long, I didn't even notice what had been bought for myself or for other people.

Now, I'm stuck with the carnage.

White elephant gifts.
Holiday cards and decorations.
Gifts from people who just didn't know what to get me, so they spun around with thier eyes closed in a store and bought whatever their finger landed on.
There is already a pile in the entry ready for the next donation truck. I'm overwhlemed, but not scared since I actually am only halfway through the project. I still have time to save myself.

If I had blogged regualrly during December, I probably would have stayed on track, but coulda, woulda, shoulda...

I'm back....to those three of you who read this! I haven't given up.


  1. I'm proud of you for jumping right back on the wagon and moving forward instead of flogging yourself! You are an inspiration because you are willing to share the good and bad, triumphs and setbacks. Life can be challenging and knowing that others work and struggle and overcome those challenges helps me to try to do the same.

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Hey, at least you have a pile already started! XO!
