I can’t be trusted around advent calendars

By 965koit on December 17, 2019

I said I was going to be good this year.

I told myself that THIS year would be different. I have grown up. I am a mom now. It is time to tuck away all my childish habits.

I would NOT open all the days of my advent calendar before the day.

Resisting was hard, but I was making it through…until yesterday.

Was it the crappy nail polish I got that set me over the edge? Probably. But the more accurate feeling was probably that of greed and selfishness.

I wanted everything NOW.

I lied to myself and said, “I’m just going to open one more day. I just won’t open one tomorrow and then I’ll be back on track.”

That one box turned to six.

Yes, I gave in, but in my defense, this was my longest-running streak when it comes to self-restraint around advent calendars.

It was the beauty one from QVC! How could I resist? It’s not my fault!

Have you ever opened all your advent calendar days at once? Let me know in the Facebook comments.
