Tag Archives: New Year

Already January 8th…

So every day I have rolled off the air mattress and stared down my computer screen with the little blinking cursor and nothing has come to mind.  I’ve had grand plans to write down my plans for 2014.  I am usually not one for resolutions but each year I try to set small goals for myself.  And this year, I don’t really have a goal in mind.  I know that I still want to shed the unwanted weight, eat, better, be nicer, save more money… but we know how that goes.

All I really want for 2014 is to feel better.  I wake up every morning wishing it were Saturday and I came home every night and immediately switch to flannel pants before making dinner.  I don’t need to spring out of bed every day but most of the week would be nice.  And adding fitness back into the routine wouldn’t be so bad either.  I have a flexible job with a gym in the basement.  I have zero excuse to be this lazy all the time.

One thing that has really improved my mood are my headphones and some good playlists on Spotify.  Music always has a way of lifting me out of whatever funk I find myself in.  Any suggestions?

Happy New Year (finally)!

So far 2011 is a mixed bag

So 2011…

Kicked it off with a not so exciting night.  The Husband had to wake me and the puppy up for New Years.  At least I made it to East Coast Midnight!  Watched a lot of Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin and passed out…

My New Years Companions

Next we found out that we were not going to be invited into the beer club.  I was sad but not entirely upset.  The Husband has decided that he will continue to drink their beer (at home… from a six pack).  He has told some of the bar staff as much and it seems that several of them are also disappointed.  It’s good to know someone was voting for us but it just wasn’t enough this time.  There’s always next year!

Glass is more than half empty... sad

Work has been busy but not making a ton of progress.  I am told this will also improve.  I hope that means my paycheck will also see an upward trend!

The Husband and I have set up our Valentine’s week full of exciting outings.  We have tickets to the Avalanche/Penguins game that week courtesy of the inlaws! We have also set up a special weekend up in Blackhawk to gamble and ski.  Should be a blast!

While 2011 has not been as great as it should be, it can only get better.  After 2 and a half weeks, how is your 2011?
