Does the calendar say December 8th already??
et moi, without a single post up yet for the month?.
I guess that old kidnapping story won’t fly again.
or ”the dog ate my computer” excuse.
To tell the truth, the days have flown by and I’m as surprised as anyone that Christmas is just a little more than two weeks away.
I’m out of my sling, driving again and continuing physical therapy but, with no offense (my therapist is adorable) the process alternates between being boring, guilt provoking and painful (insert your old relationship’s name here)
The upside is I’ve found I have a ton of company. I’ve joined a ‘Torn Rotator Cuff Society’ where we all give secret “Live Long and Prosper” salutes, albeit with awkwardly hunched-up shoulders.
Christmas will be different in our home this year. I’m not decorating in our traditional fashion, so unfortunately, I won’t have my usual Christmas fare to share. It would be impossible for me to get on a ladder to dress the tree. Let’s get real, I still can’t even tie up my hair.
OK, let’s get really real, did I mention I gained 10 lbs? NO JOKE, therefore not at all funny so stop laughing!
Who would imagine that months of no exercise, a steady diet of comfort food and a newly acquired penchant for red wine would be so deleterious??
But I don’t really like to talk about weight, diets and yucky things so we’ll leave that there.

Changes are afoot for ‘Slim Paley’. Good changes (hopefully)
After 4 years it’s time.
Somebody forgot to tell my roses it was December.
I’ll be tinkering with my entire format and design, so please bear with me in the following weeks. I need to address issues such as my crowding columns and “Category Cloud” disappearance.
Let’s face it-”Slim” needs a lift
I’d like to return to shorter, more frequent posts and possibly include some short videos too.
In the meantime, please do visit my past December posts in the Archives,
as well as The Popular Kids,
and my Travel tab which I’ve been updating slowly but surely.
More new travel coming soon!
Keep your cool in the crowds, don’t let the holidays make you crazy, and remember…
And feel free to comment with any great holiday tips for us
