One. The Husband… blah blah blah… I don’t want to go there; I’m not ready to go there; you don’t want me to go there. I was depressed. Like, severely. Like, couldn’t stop crying. Felt like I had the flu. I went to the doctor, went back on The Prozac (which I probably shouldn't have stopped taking in the first place) and now, weeks later, I'm finally starting to feel almost, somewhat, normal. (Whatever that means.) So, this is me, trying to push myself over the hump.

Two. I started watching Grey’s Anatomy. (Because I needed something to distract myself from the gut-wrenching anxiety.) (Anxiety sucks.) I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite show ever and now that I’m feeling better and don’t need the distraction I’ve basically stopped watching, but I went through the first 6 seasons fairly quickly and, well, it wasn't bad. Still, ER was way better back in the day.

Three. Mint Chocolate M&Ms are back. They are my all-time favorite M&Ms and they only come out during the holiday season. And even though I’m boycotting Christmas this year (because I’m just not ready), these M&Ms make me happy. (I wish food didn’t make me happy.)

Four. Speaking of food. My mother bakes bread. BAKES. BREAD. Homemade, wonderful, warm, soft, fresh-out-the-oven bread. So, I’ve basically been gorging myself on thick slices of steaming bread smothered in butter! BUTTER! Do you know what this means? My goal? My weight loss goal? Total fail.

Five. I'm determined to make 2011 the year of the library. I got a library card a few weeks ago. Yes, an actual library card. And I even checked out a book. My problem, however, is that I've been reading e-books on my iPod for the last year and I've become very spoiled accustomed to having all of my books with me everywhere I go and being able to read anywhere. Now I'm finding it very difficult to revert back. Of course, it took only a very rough estimation of how much I've spent on those e-books in the last year and, suddenly, I was very much resolved.

Six. Thanksgiving. It's on Thursday. I have to work which, you know, kinda sucks but I'm looking forward to taking a week off in December and spending it with my sister and her family in Utah. My parents and younger siblings will come up as well and we'll have a big meal that resembles one you might have on Thanksgiving or Christmas, but since I'm boycotting the holidays and dragging them down with me, we'll just call it "dinner." I'll overdose on my sister's t0-die-for sweet potatoes and it will be awesome.

So, tell me something... am I the only one who wants to postpone the holidays for another six months? (And if you say you've finished your Christmas shopping already, I may just have to hurt you.)
