January Blahs-And How To Fight Back


January is probably my least favorite month, with the exception of one day, January 26th. Not that I have all the months categorized, but think of it.  You come down off this holiday high, that for some people goes from Halloween till January 1st. The only thing left in your mailbox after getting day-after-day of happy colorful holiday greetings from longtime friends to bills and more credit card offers. You eat with gay abandon from October 31st to January 1st, then you step on the scale and OMG, January becomes instant horror!

So I cope with laughter. With dumb, but funny cliches.

Life is too short to drink bad wine. True story... The other day opened a bottle of champagne, just for myself. I had one glass and as you know, champagne bottles are too large to fit in a regular sized refrigerator shelf.  It was cool outside, so I set it outside.  The landscapers took it! Really! I had to smile.  I guess they needed a little pick-me-up too!

Seen it all, done it all, don't remember most of it.  This made me laugh. I hate that saying, "Been there, done that."  But the idea of adding, "can't remember most of it" tickled my funnybone.

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor. True story. (See last paragraph!) :)

When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. Not so much in January. That's what got me into this mess.

As see on a bottle of bath gel: "Instant Human, Just Add Bubbles". Yup, there are days like that!

I'm trying to lose weight, but it just keeps finding me. Enough said.

Man cannot live by cake alone, women can. (Again, see previous paragraph.)

So, go on, have a great day, with a smile on your face.  We are almost 1/2 of the way through this month.

February is fun. It's hearts and flowers Valentines Day and only 27 other quick days!
