Most of the year I think I have pretty good self-control, but during the holiday season I sort of lose it. Too many temptations.
Eggnog from McNamara’s, a local dairy
Plum pudding with hard sauce
Cookies – especially homemade – especially spritz candy canes
Fruitcake – yes, fruitcake
Holiday flavors of Hershey Kisses and M and M’s
Not just food
One more Yankee Candle – sugared apple
One more decoration
Self-gifting- usually nothing expensive, but always something
Impulse item– flip-flop socks for Avery
Over-budget on gifts
Holiday-themed jewelry, scarves, sweaters
There are just a few days left in this holiday season. Soon it will be time to pack up the decorations, as well as the excuses, and get on with the new year!
