It's the most wonderful time of the year. . . . .
Today was our first snow storm of the season! I am sure that it will warm up before the end of the week, or at least I hope. It seems like in Utah the snow comes just in time to ruin Halloween, and then it warms up a little. Things are already seeming to be a little crazy. I LOVE the holidays, but when you are a Recreation Therapist, you get to be on holiday overload. I am planning now to maybe help relieve the extra stress. It seems to go so fast that you have a hard time enjoying it. Holidays are also so tricky. It becomes a balancing act of trying to get everything done, stress, bills, DIETING, and trying to figure out boluses and basal rates for complicated foods. I guess the only advice I could offer would be: Try to enjoy the "little" things that make the holidays special! My doctor always says the "holidays don't count as much". My CDE/RD says that you have to cheat and allow yourself forgiveness. Hopefully I don't go crazy. . . .LOL! I figure that diets are always around and you will always have some holiday to deal with. I have already started looking at good recipes that will help me stick with it. I hope everyone has a great time enjoying all the wonderful activities that are part of this non-stop holiday adventure until the end of the year.
Tonight I got to watch my sisters baby. She is here visiting from CT. I feel kinda bad because he's a mommas boy. I don't think he likes me that much! ;) Being 5 month's old he's a little bias. He better like me in the future! I am his Godmother, and besides, I ALWAYS send the best gifts! :)
