The holidays are over! You've:
Roasted your turkey.
Navigated and possibly refereed your relations.
Watched or fled the football games.
Wrapped presents or shoved them all into gift bags because that's easier.
Taken the ornaments away from the cat.
Eaten all the Christmas cookies/fruitcake/latkes and wished for more, or decided enough already!
Watched the ball drop at midnight of 12/31 to usher in 2015 (though in some Maryland towns, it might have been a crab, or a donut or a canvasback duck that dropped. <G>)
Made your resolutions.
I like January because it's usually such a peaceful contrast to the holiday season.
January is a good time for working.
A good time to get together with friends to brighten up gray days.
A good time to toss those resolutions that are totally unrealistic or involve self-hatred.
Instead, do things you enjoy. Watch a favorite flash mob video.
Or a cat video. (It's well know that the infrastructure of the internet is pictures of cats. <G>
Read a good book.
Read SEVERAL good books!
Enjoy the peace.
And maybe the bagpipe flash mob or Irish stepdancers. <G>
What do you like to do in January?
