Though not celebrated in the United States, Boxing Day is a holiday designed to give alms to the poor. So boxing has to do with how gifts are packaged, not that thing some of us like to do in a gym, or a ring 🙂 When it falls on a weekend, it is moved to the first weekday, so it is actually tomorrow. Ironically, feeling a need to purge stuff from my house, I not only cleaned up all the gifts, cards, ribbons and wrapping yesterday, but also cleaned out my closets and drawers, making a few bags of clothes to give away. Having gotten some new workout items, (thanks, Mitch, for introducing me to the sporting goods store, Dicks) from Mitch and with some of my holiday cash, I had to get rid of some of the old. It just feels so much better in my closet now. I feel like cleaning out the closet is a good metaphor for life…and eating! Yesterday I cleaned out the closet…today, I am planning on cleaning up my eating act. The time has come.
Go Dolphins…please get this one right.
Hoping you all had a very, very Merry Christmas filled with love and loved ones!
