New Year, New Day


Today is the first day back at my Day Job. It was a really busy holiday season for me. My in-laws came and stayed at our house and my sister-in-law was visiting from England. While she was here my husband went out with his family to see the new Star Wars movie which I think he really enjoyed. This year the eldest kid was really into Christmas. Last year it was an effort to get him to open presents: he just didn’t care. He didn’t want to unwrap the presents and he didn’t care for whatever he was given. This year you couldn’t stop him. He wanted to hand out presents to everyone, we put out milk and cookies for Santa. We kind of forgot Rudolph though, so maybe next year. Now that he is starting to read and is able to recognize names and stuff he was grabbing presents for everyone and trying to hand them out. It was supposed to be my husbands job but I think my eldest really wanted in on it. There were no family arguments, not that there ever are, but playing Uno with these people is dangerous. I wouldn’t recommend it. Unless maybe you all had been drinking a lot πŸ˜›

I’ve basically been playing video games all vacation. I got a new one for Christmas from a series I really enjoy. I have another one coming for me too. It wasn’t released until the 31st of December so I have to wait for it to get shipped to me. Which is fine. I have this other one to play.

I received some books, one of which I’ve now finished, a movie, the first season of a show I like, some small things, a really nice new knife set, a new pair of gloves for kickboxing and some new wraps along with some other things. I also received a new coat, but that is also on it’s way here.

I hope this new year goes a lot better than last year. I am feeling really stretched and at the end of my rope lately. I don’t do the resolution thing, because I can never stick to them. I always overshoot so this year, I’m just going to hope to maintain the status quo and hope it gets better from last year. There are a lot of different contributing factors to that. I haven’t been able to write as much as I want to. There are things I want to do to my stupid house to make it feel more like mine. Since we’ll be living here from now on, I suppose I better get on it. The problem is that everything costs money. We don’t have money right now. We’reΒ still waiting on the payout from my husbands last job so I’m really hoping it gets the hell over here already. I miss having my vehicle. I miss being able to buy a can of damn paint because I want to paint my kitchen. Or getting new towels because ours aren’t that awesome any more. Or even just being able to pay bills without stressing where the money is coming from. I know that time is coming, I’m just getting really impatient waiting for it.

Hope your holidays weren’t too crazy! What have you all been up to during the season? Did anyone go anywhere interesting? Do anything you thought was super fun? Tell me about it! πŸ™‚
