So far, the year is off to a splendid start. We spent New Year's Eve at home, hanging out, drinking wine, eating good food, playing Super Mario Wii, and watching The Hangover. We watched the ball drop in Times Square and counted down aloud from 10 and clinked our glasses of cheap bubbly. We gave each other New Year's kisses, and then there was a round of kisses for our sleeping pups.
We spent Friday sleeping in, having In N Out (yum!), napping and then had dinner with our friends Jenn and Jim. Some more Super Mario Wii, and we called it a night. Today has been quiet. We ran errands and had lunch, then Mr. K went to Scott and Melissa's to get more color in his large rib piece. I couldn't muster the desire to drive an hour each way to watch him lay there getting worked on, so I baked cookies for my sister's boyfriend (I gave everyone in the family gift certificates for cookies and he cashed his in) and am now surfing the interwebs. Super exciting stuff.
I can't believe I have to go back to work on Monday - this week has gone by so fast. I didn't really do much, but I do feel refreshed. I didn't clean out my closet or get Clover fully house-broken (in my defense, she's super stubborn, I know she's smart enough to get it) or watch any movies on my list. But we got a new vacuum (yay, adulthood!) and I deep-cleaned the kitchen and bathrooms, put away Christmas decorations, dressed the bed in brand new sheets, and wrote my Christmas thank you notes. You win some, you lose some.
We're not done celebrating yet, though. Tomorrow is my sister's 25th birthday and Tuesday is Paisley's 2nd. I miss being able to celebrate with my sister, but we've been fortunate to spend each holiday together since she's been in Seattle. I'm glad that my parents made the trip to spend her birthday with her and I hope she has an awesome day! We'll have to think of something special for Paisley's birthday. Last year on her first birthday, she got an extra 30 minutes at the dog park, doggie ice cream, and a roll of toilet paper to shred to her heart's content.
I'm saving any resolutions I come up with for Kelly's Korner's Show Us Your Life post on the 8th. I usually don't make resolutions, but maybe that WILL be my resolution. I'll think of something. I know there are definitely ways in which I can improve as a daughter, sister, wife, friend, and employee.
How is everyone's New Year so far?
