There’s a giant GAP!
It just seems to deepen as we get older. I’m sure as a kid its not big at all. You have it during your Christmas and New Year holiday. One week, 10 days, maybe its two weeks. How lucky can you be?!
If parents are generous they may have promised to take children on holidays! How neat is that.
Others may be with babysitters or family members, not going anywhere. That would be pretty … Boooorrring!
Watching Facebook feeds, lots of families have travelled abroad to Hawaii or Mexico. Las Vegas for a few days has been a great retreat for others.
We have endured a rather cold beginning to December and now it appears the month will depart on a rather warm note!
I like that, especially considering our upcoming year of celebrating 150 years as a country. The anticipation of 365 days of celebration will begin on New Year’s Eve. So much is planned whether its Regina or one of the cities across the country.
The time between Christmas and New Year is GAP time, spent with families, travelling, shopping and just relaxing to recharge for the second part of winter. The Christmas of 2016 seemed to be the one that attacked families with flu symptoms.
For our family, it started on the 23rd with my mom and then for myself the night of Christmas. Boxing Day I needed to get outside and walk. I did so, it was needed. After being out through the day, my “blah” feeling had not left, but we soldier on!
Yesterday, I got a good solid 5 hour sleep and I think that might be much the same today.
Good points to ponder: Sleep means not eating the snacks and treats that are around AND not spending money. Its all so tempting!
Convinced that heading into the New Year I will be debt free and take on a new outlook on health and fitness.
Check out your “bank accounts” and see where you can make improvements – but do it for you – no one else.
Make this Gap Time count!
