You know why I’m RELIEVED today is Monday, the day after Easter?!
I’ll tell you!
I’m relieved because finally, today means a rough 6 month stretch of holidays full of sweets and treats (and coworkers who bring those treats into the office…) is OVER.
It starts with Halloween and segues quickly into Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. We get a verrrry brief reprieve before we are bombarded with Valentine’s Day stuff, and then Easter is close on the tail of Cupid’s day.
And I swear, each year these holidays get more and more centered around junk; that or I’m just getting more sensitive to/aware of how many treats we consume during these times.
And I never seek the stuff out, but when it’s made available/in front of me, I definitely have my weaknesses, and I definitely give in sometimes.
Which there is nothing wrong with the occasional treat… but I’m not gonna sit here and act like I’m not relieved this holiday stretch is over, BECAUSE I AM 😉
It is a rough stretch for most people, and I am no different!
