My Day Off

This morning I was supposed to go to Costco to get my new glasses and get some stuff for Christmas. However, there was snow on the ground when I woke up. “Fuck”, I said. I don’t drive in the snow. Where I live snow is a sopping wet slush and not safe. Anyway, I settled in with my pyjamas and robe and a cup of coffee. Its a perfect day to watch my stack of Christmas movies so I put on, “It’s a Wonderful Life” and spent some time colouring. Now I am watching, “A Muppet Christmas Carol”, which I think is one of the most precious movies ever. If any movie makes me cry this one does.

Last night I went to my weight loss support group. I was up a little, oh drat! Now I am 3 pounds from my goal. But it was a great meeting as it always is, comparable to an A.A. meeting. These people are so amazing and love me and care about me. If I miss a meeting I feel it all week. It’s not about food addiction. It’s about this internal battle. Even those who have reached their goal weight still have to go. I know I always will.

Here’s this. I promise you it’s worth the 3 minutes and 44 seconds. If we can get this message we will be okay. It’s my Christmas gift for you.

Bless Us All…

  1. Oh shoot! Sorry you weren’t able to get your glasses today. “It’s a Wonderful Life” is one of my favorites and usually watch it Christmas eve.

    • Joey, are you joking? Because there are hundreds of muppets. Miss Piggy, yes. She married Kermit the Frog. They have children. But years before that there was Big Bird, Ernie and Bert, The Count, Harry Monster, Elmo, Oscar the Grouch… I could write for at least 30 minutes and not come up with all of them. They must be an American/Canadian thing. Most people that live here wouldn’t pause a beat if asked what any muppet is.

  2. Thank you for your kind words Birdie. I found a wonderful counselor yesterday which was a gift in itself. Wishing you a peaceful Christmas:)

  3. Oh the muppets…I adore Kermit…and I was always a big fan of Animal lol…that’s a great movie to watch! I just got through the old puppet-style animations of Rudolph, The Year Without a Santa Clause and Santa Clause is Coming To Town. Those are all childhood faves!! The glasses can wait. I tend to make appointments like that in the spring when the driving is much easier!

    • My husband drove. I drive every single day for my job so when I have a day off, I don’t want to even be in my car. The snow solidifies the resolve.

  4. Those are two of my most fave Christmas shows! We always watch It’s a Wonderful Life on Christmas eve. I remember when I lived in Victoria and was going to University and it snowed. I drive out to school and no one is there. The whole place shut down from a tiny bit of snow! Of course they don’t have enough plows or salt/sand trucks so to keep people safe they shut schools down. In comparison here we got our first big snowfall with over 9 inches of soft mushy snow and everyone is still out driving around, nothing is closed. Slush is the worst cause it just pulls your car all over the road. Glad you could stay safely at home.
