For the first time in decades, I no longer live on a gravel road. This is now the chronicle of my life as I begin my FOURTH year in the city

The Perils of Pralines
I almost made it. I'd run the office gauntlet in spectacular fashion this week, dodging all sorts of treats and goodies, parties, deliveries and homebaked goods. Until today, when an evil-doer of the sugar pushing variety gave me my very own stash of pralines. She makes THE BEST pralines in all of the land. Seriously. These are apocolyptically good. So I took all the little goodie bags I'd received, including the pralines, and created a treat plate over in the office kitchen AKA Candyland. But I kept two pralines for me - and I ate them, I enjoyed them and I don't feel one bit bad about it. They are worth it. If I'm going to have a treat, let it be exquisite.
We get sprung from the office around 3pm today and I've still got some returning to do re: It's Art If I Say It's Art aquisition. Plus, some boots that I ordered online that just don't work. I'm a cowboy's dream - I gots fat calves - so I ordered wide-calf boots. Lawdamighty, I couldn't even get my pants down over the legs of those boots - it looked like I was wearing culverts, not boots. So back they go - teach me to buy sight unseen.
I didn't go to the gym this morning, as I needed to fix something for a birthday breakfast in the office, and now the gym is closed for the holidays. I'm looking for some drop-in yoga to fill my need for stretchy, stretchy - and hopefully the weather will allow some cycling. I am getting so spoiled to riding with the b'shells that I kinda hate to ride by myself these days.
I will be participating in the good-thing-in-a-jar challenge that's making the rounds these days. I already have my container picked out. I'll also be participating in Ellen's Hate Loss Challenge as well - it's always interesting and informative to see what Ellen comes up with.
That's all I got.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Choose Wisely - make it worth it.
