Back on Track After Turkey Weekend
Welcome to "About Town," a column that will keep you up to the minute with what's what, who's who and what the town's talking about. Check in often, because we will be updating often. And if you see or hear something we could use here, let us know.
Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and a bunch of other delicious treats, that is what we enjoyed over the past few days. Now for some this is buckle down time, which means time to get back on their diets and eat right.
Rachel Levine, an employee of Dedham Strength and Fitness, after a long weekend of family fun and good food, has made her plan to work hard to work of the turkey. She says, "It felt good to eat great food and splurge away from my diet, but now it's time to get back on track."
There are some who missed or decided not to go out on Black Friday. Well today was their shopping deals day - Cyber Monday. Ann Castle, a Dedham resident, said, "I do most of my shopping on the Monday after Thanksgiving, they have great deals and I don't have to deal with crowds."
This seems like a great way to do things. After looking on the Internet and comparing them to the ads, you get just as good deals on Cyber Monday as you do Black Friday, maybe that's an option that we all could use to avoid the stress.
The Sustainability Advisory Committee postponed its 7 p.m. meeting tonight.
