Gumption

Does anyone know where I can buy gumption? I have not had any this holiday season and I am behind in my baking and candymaking. I know once I get started, I will be fine. Bring the body and the mind will follow....
but, if you know where to buy gumption, please pm me.
Thanks, Susan

There are a lot of us around who have lost their mojo this season Susan....

I'm hoping it'll show up very soon! Good luck!

Gumption can be found in the same aisle where the "round tuit" is. Although, I think the shelf with the "round tuit" is much larger than the one with gumption.

I've been looking for both.

And I thought that I was the only one.

It gives comfort to know that I am not the only one. It makes me sad to know that so many are feeling "Out of gear" for the holidays.

While ice cream, may I have chocolate please, helps, it gets digested and we go on.

Maybe we can focus on some one or more that one who's life we would like to lift over the holiday. If we do that, maybe we can share some of their joy.

What do you think? Worth a try?
