Well, the Christmas tree has been cut in half and set out on the curb, per the city of Pleasanton's strict instructions. I have to look at myself in the mirror and accept it:
Out with the steady diet of pumpkin pie, Mexican hot chocolate and Pyramid Apricot Ale and back in with the Odwalla Super Food, flax seed and Lucerne drinkable yogurt smoothies because Christmas season is so over. It ended gloriously with a post-New Year's eve gathering of friends at Casa De O-dogg. All raved over wifey's Mexican hot choc, the Wii and the newest HDTV. But alas, it is all done and gone.
Down with the decorations and remnants of the holiday season - it's time to get over the colds & flus and get lean & mean in the gym again.
