Brace yourself folks, winter is here! Even in sunny Florida, winter is here. That’s right the Sunshine state saw even saw snow today! Fortunately, the snow was nowhere near South Florida, but even here the mercury has fallen to a chilly 52 degrees. As the night progresses, the temperatures will continue to fall bottoming out somewhere around 37 degrees. There’s a slight chance, ever so slight chance, that we may turn on the heat this week.
Back at work, we’re all getting back into the routine, which feels good. January is a magical time of new beginnings. My goal is to hold on to the hopeful feelings January brings well into 2018. I mean my year is off to a great start with me gaining 1/2 of an inch in height! Things are definitely looking up.
Of course, I swore I was going to start behaving this week and being more mindful with my eating habits. Nonetheless, one of my dear colleagues (PS) brought in some magically delightful and calorie free tasty treat. Who doesn’t love homemade fudge? It truly was magical and oh so tasty. My boys should thank their lucky stars that they actually got some of the fudge. Fortunately, they got some fudge and they devoured it. I’m hopeful by the time I get back from work tomorrow the fudge is all gone. Otherwise, I’ll eat the rest of it.
Anyway, new year, new me, new you and a clean slate tomorrow. I’ll be back to my healthy eating (no more treats!) habits. 2018 is all about being disciplined in all aspects of life. In the interim, I’m going to try and not freeze as South Florida plunges into the 30s. Be prepared for pictures and news stories of South Florida’s deep freeze including the inevitable picture of a catatonic iguana.
Tonight’s song performed by Florida Georgia Line is “Cruise.”
