Double digits, baby - the beginning of the end.
When you get to January 10, desperation begins to set in. Possibly despair.
You are in double digit territory in the new year and nothing has changed. Nothing about your life has changed.
One foot on the slippery slope. Your stomach churns, your butt clenches.
You know exactly how this will end.
Might as well begin to make plans for New Year's Eve 2018.
