Whew! It's Over!

Over?

You think it's over?

"IT'S NOT OVER UNTIL WE SAY IT'S OVER!! WAS IT OVER WHEN THE GERMANS BOMBED PEARL HARBOR?!!"

Ooops, channeling John Belushi in Animal House.

All of a sudden Christmas is over and December 26 is such an odd day for most of us. If you don't have to run in to work today can be a day of recollecting yourself, starting to clean up a little (I'm not watering my tree anymore 'cause it's history at the end of the week), maybe seeing some friends you missed last week and over the weekend and building your energy levels for the run at New Year's this weekend.

You could spend some time thinking about resolutions for the coming year if you do that sort of thing. Only 7% of Americans actually keep their resolutions.

You could watch my Tar Heels play a bowl game at 5 pm against Missouri.

You could try to fix that toy your kids just HAD to have but broke within the first five minutes.

You could try and figure out the new technology you received.

You could spend one more moment thinking about the people who were not in your Christmas this year.

You could spend the rest of your time appreciating the people who came into and ARE in your life this year.

Yep, December 26 is an odd day. But then, any day you're vertical and breathing is a good day. Enjoy it.
