Day 56 – December 26, 2010


The day after Christmas is always one of the hardest for me.  Much fun and much food make it hard to want to do anything…for other people.  So I’m in a house full of loafers.  They wake up late, bleary-eyed and yawning.  They shuffle into the kitchen looking for food and making a mess of the counter and table.  They pad into the living room and turn on a movie or play a video game.

I’ve been up for 4 hours, fed the dogs, unloaded the dishwasher, gave myself a pedicure and bathed the cat before they’re internal alarm clocks rang for the first time.  How do they do that?
