This can't be good

Woke up this morning at 4:25 a.m. for the fourth morning in a row, feeling a vigorous sense of persecution at the idea of a new year looming over me and how we're all supposed to be whipping ourselves into shape -- spiritually, physically, intellectually and emotionally -- like lean young greyhounds. Clearly, it would be much better if we all skulked under the blankets until, say, March, nursing our grievances and keeping ourselves well away from everyone who is determined to make a good start of things. Because those people? They wear on my last nerve, the one that has already been frayed threadbare by the knowledge that Oprah Winfrey, who is surely the devil, has launched a new network called OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, "devoted to self-discovery, to connecting you to your best self and to the world."

I'd vomit if that wouldn't make it necessary to change the sheets. Just. Vomit.

LOL!! I only knew about her network because my husband works in cable and heard about it months ago. Like Oprah has such an original idea..."be the best person you can be". Ugh. Yet she makes so much darn money.

I've got some New Year's guilt, too, but I'm working on it. Some areas are easier than others. One "goal" is to pray the rosary every single day. But it hasn't happened yet. Terrible.

LOL on are so funny. The Carmel teams are the Greyhounds, so I have one of those in-shape kinda people here on a daily's disgusting the amount of food that boy enjoys without gaining an ounce and will in fact often say, "I lost two pounds last week, I better step up the eating." Yep, curling back down in that quilt-laden bed until March seems like a fine idea to me.
