New Year

Oops!  December totally got away from me.  Work was busy, Christmas with my family was fantastic, and now suddenly its the last day of 2011.

Maybe I am weird, but I don't see the coming of a new year as such a big deal.  Yes, its fun to stay up late and count down to a new calendar date with family and friends, but is the next morning really that different? Are we really going to be different people starting the next day?  For me, the answer is no.  I'm going to be the same.  Also, along those lines, if I want to change something (i.e. New Years resolutions) why can't I do it today?  Or on April 27th? Maybe that will be my resolution this year, to change things when I sense they need a change, not to wait until a specific calendar date to start!

I guess I sound a little bah humbug about New Years but hey, lets just chalk it up to my 7th year in a row without a New Year's kiss :) Regardless, I am still going to ring in the New Year laughing and having fun with great friends. There's always next year to start off with a kiss!

Oh so busy

My goodness, where have the days gone?!?  I've been working late (something I never ever do) and spending my evenings running errands.  I guess thats what the holidays do to you though right?

Christmas is in 16 days. My brothers hopefully arrives in 7 days.  Darn Navy, he won't know if his time off is approved until he is basically on the plane! I want to have everything in order by the time he gets here so I don't have to worry about a thing.  I essential want to just drop off the face of the earth and spend time with my family. 

So, I am going to fill up the next week with baking, shopping, gift wrapping, packing, cleaning, Christmas parties, Football games, oh and trying to clear out my DVR. 

And the madness continues!
