Family is the beginning and the end of old habits.  There’s the preview for that “Nothing like the holidays” movie when Reese Witherspoon says, “I ate my feelings, ok?” and Vince Vaughn responds, “You must have had a lot of feelings.”  For me, that is what the holidays are all about: falling into or fighting off old habits.

The Pacific Northwest has been a nightmare lately.  There has been no working out outside because it has been too snowy and icy.  There has been very little of anything, actually, because of the horrible snow.  So little that I have NOTHING to write about!
