Never Think Never, Let This Spell Last Forever

Well, I suppose I could actually write a post instead of just reading all your lovely blogs for hours. ;)

It sounds like most of you had very nice holidays. My Christmas was quiet, but fun.  I think I'll bore you all with a recap of the past few days, if you don't mind. :)
Christmas Eve day I went grocery shopping with my mom and sister for everything we needed for Christmas dinner.  I actually love going to food stores and looking at all the stuff.  I know I said previously that I don't like getting food we don't "need", but looking is always fun! 
Later, my sister and her skating partner had a performance at a local, temporary ice rink.  They did a great job!  That was around 5 pm, so we had to have dinner out afterward.  We went to a Mexican place that wasn't really fast-food, but it wasn't a nice, sit-down restaurant either.  Those places are actually the easiest for me to eat at, not sure why.  I played it safe and copied my sister's order, but I ate the food and enjoyed it. 
Christmas morning we got up and my mom made french toast.  Scary!! But I had a piece and some milk, too.  Then we opened our presents (it was just my mom, dad, sister, and me - we keep things small around here).  I love all my presents!  We try to keep things on a budget, so we don't usually get/give anything big or expensive, but really that's not the point of Christmas, I don't think. 
Here's my scarf:

You can't see, but it has peace signs, scary skulls, and hearts on it.  Three of my favs!
My new robe thing.  It's super warm! (Excuse the messy closet)

Then we decided that we didn't really want to sit around the house all day, so we went to the zoo.  One of my favorite places!  We made sandwiches with the Christmas roast and ate them at the zoo.  It was so much fun and I was actually able to relax for once.  I love that feeling, when you have nothing to worry about - no school or work stuff hanging over your head.  It's the best.  Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to feel that way all the time.  I know that worrying about things that I have no control over doesn't do any good.  That, really, we should just let things go because they DO work out for good.  Doesn't "good" by definition always overcome evil?
On Sunday, we, again, didn't really do anything.  We did brave the Asian markets to get stuff (edible and non-edible)in preparation for New Years.  (My mom does always a semi-traditional Japanese New Years.)  I did give in to temptation and work out in my room.  But only for a very short time. Then we had our "real" Christmas dinner. (Am I the only one who LOVES Brussel sprouts? lol)

Overall, it was a great weekend filled with relaxing and hilarious times.  The only stressful thing was that I didn't exercise very much, so right now I kinda have that "f" feeling, if you know what I mean.  I can get through it, but it's really so annoying and not fun.  Eating was good, though.  I ate alot and mostly I enjoyed everything with a minimum of guilt. 

Sooo, that was my holiday weekend.  If you're still reading this you deserve a gold star.  :)  I hope everyone has a wonderful week!


  1. I'm so glad that you ate without feeling guilty and that you had a pretty good holiday. Have a great week - and remember that you are so much stronger than ED! =)


  2. I'm glad you had a wonderful holiday! <3

    And the important part was, you did not let your ED thinking ruin your entire holiday. That was a huge accomplishment!

    Thank you for your comments on my blog. They're always an enlightening read!

  3. Yay I'm so glad that you had a wonderful Christmas!

    It's just me and my small family on Christmas day too. I think it's really nice that it's quiet and we can all relax(: I'm glad you didn't let Ed ruin your Christmas, you seemed to handle him quite well(:

  4. That is an adorable hoodie and NO, you are NOT the only one who loves brussel sprouts! I had 4 helpings on Christmas!
