Results of the Blonde Ambition Tour

I set some lofty goals for this holiday season.  I knew you have been unable to sleep at night wondering how much I pulled off.  (A bottle of wine equals a sleeping pill, just a suggestion).

Well, let’s score my results – red means I failed, green means I passed:

  • Make it to the gym at least four days each week to counteract the 12 Pounds of Christmas FAIL – I have been twice since December 20th.  But does it count that I ate and drank even more than I had planned on? I think so.
  • Clean-out my closet. Thanks to my husband’s gifts, I did this even more thoroughly than planned.
  • Help my kids with their charity donationsMy kids are awesome, they filled three large trash bags and got rid of enough bath toys to make me actually want to bathe in my own tub!
  • Clean-out my husband’s office – It’s the embarrassing catch-all room and it looks like somebody threw up a recycling bin in there.  It looks better, we found the bed and floor, removed all signs of Christmas wrapping and cleaned out two years worth of the kids are projects. 
  • Have at least three playdates for the kids and three “mommy playdates”.  I am really an overachiever in this area!  I had multiple mommy play dates!  Oh yeah and the kids played with some friends too.
  • Upload pictures to Facebook and make discs for people.  Ha ha ha.  Not going to happen.  One of my friends saw this post and asked for a disc.  She knows better now.
  • Visit family and friends 3 hours away, 1 hour away and 30 minutes away. Fail.  Other than my husband’s grandparents, we never left the neighborhood.
  • Host Christmas dinnerI set a beautiful table, my husband made an amazing meal and we bought a decadent dessert.  But I do have some yummy new recipes to try out… some other time.
  • Take down already dead tree and Christmas decorations on December 26th.  Buh-bye Christmas!  Not a shred of holiday cheer left in sight. (But there is still plenty of cheer in the liquor cabinet!)
Overall, it’s been a great Christmas.  I have visited, indulged, organized and drank. 

And now I would like a nap. 

And some Tums.
