O.K. This is it. I'm going cold turkey for sure right now, or else we won't have hot turkey! (Alright, my sister is actually cooking the bird, but you get the picture).
No more political ranting for a few days. I'm not even going to discuss this.
Just going to try to preserve my sanity in the mall and grocery store one more time, then head home to get some last minute things done. Here's a tip for frantic shoppers - Bring a bottle of water and some kind of protein with you. I love those cheese string thingys. There's nothing worse than being in a huge crowd and getting dehydrated and weak. This will keep you going. A Clementine is a great energy boost too. Keep a few in the car. Oh, and don't forget the hand cleanser. Keep those germs far away!
Drop a little something in the Salvation Army kettle. That will also give you a lift.
Then go home and start counting your blessings. We tend to complain a lot (and I am probably the worse offender), but at the end of the day we have so much to be grateful for here in Canada.
Merry Christmas to all!
