Life Lately

Life the past few weeks consisted of not feeling well, the holidays, and cleaning/organizing my house. Since I work for a school, I get the same holiday break as teachers. I have to admit, it's pretty glorious. I made myself a to-do list of what I wanted to complete over break and did most of it. I call that a win.

I also spent the week of Christmas not feeling well and so did the Hubs. We ended up rescheduling Christmas Eve at his parents and he didn't come to Christmas at my parents. It all ended up working out, but it sucks to have time off and then get sick.

We didn't party it up for NYE, we went to dinner with my grandma and aunt and came home early. Womp, womp. We just don't want to go out and spend a ton of money or take a cab home on such a busy night. And there is no way that we would drive home on such a busy night. Maybe next year we will have people over, but right now we are being homebodies.

Overall, I've spent the past few weeks just relaxing and renewing myself, so that I can go into the new year with a positive mindset. I have to remind myself that I don't need to be perfect for everyone. To help myself not feel stressed, we got our communication board hung and I got my planner ordered. I find comfort in having a paper planner.  I need to take the time to enjoy what I have going on and do things to the best of my abilities.


  1. Boo! Sorry you got sick. My other half is sick right now... so guess who gets to play nurse? :) We were pretty boring for NYE, too. I hate getting old sometimes... then again, I was more than ok waking up sans hangover.

  2. It sucks being sick over the holidays, but at least you didn't have to work and you got to spend some low key time! I hate going on out NYE! It is always so crowded, overpriced and full of annoying drunks who decide it is a great idea to drive too. I'd rather stay in that evening and go out the following weekend or something.

  3. I was so sick during the break also, it was the worst! I'm glad to hear you're feeling a little bit better. You go on getting your list done! I just wanted to be lazy the entire break :) Happy New Year, friend!



I'm excited you're here. Leave me a message so that we can be excited together!
