I hope you all had a great Christmas!
Christmas Eve was nice and quiet – I got home from work and hung out with the honeyman and read a big chunk of NOS4A2, which was really nice (I don’t even remember the last time I was able to sit and read 200 pages at once), but I also started feeling sick and I’ve been kind of sniffle-y since then. Christmas Day we had a quiet morning at home, and then went to see my family at my big sister’s house. Food was delicious, kids were all crazy (at one point I was being beat up by my niece and Devil Baby with Minecraft swords), and we played a long game of Cards Against Humanity with my siblings, which was hysterical. We celebrated Christmas with some friends yesterday – again, delicious food, presents, and we played Black Ops 2 and Injustice for a while, as well as a card game called Conflicted that I got the honeyman. All in all, very lovely holiday – but I’m glad it’s over. Decorations are all put away already (the up side of not having put up a tree), and I’m glad to get back to things as usual.
New Years is this week! Last year around this time I did a recap of 2012 and talked about my 2013 goals. I’m not going to do anything so organized this year, because I am too lazy for that right now. 2013 wasn’t the best – honeyman changed jobs, we moved to a smaller crappier apartment, my car keeps breaking – but it was no where near the worst. We still feel incredibly lucky and grateful for everything we have. Overall for goals, I managed to maintain my weight, I read a lot, and I switched jobs (even though I’m at the same company) so I didn’t do TOO bad on my 2013 goals.
Hopes for 2014? Still maintain my weight, read as much as I can, switch to self-hosting my blog, and make more money so we can save more for a house. That’s about it. Easy-peasy.
The Bout of Books 9.0 readathon is coming up! It’s 1/6 to 1/12, and you KNOW you wanna sign up. I’m even hosting one of the challenges. It’s going to be awesome.
And on that note, I’m off to keep reading (I want to finish NOS4A2 before the year ends) and do laundry and generally just hang out around the house, which is really my favorite thing to do ever.
How was your Christmas? Do you have plans for New Years? Goals for next year?
