A new year has been ushered in, and it's hard to believe that an entire decade of the 2000's is under our belt. Where in the world did 10 years go?? I remember being sick on New Year's in 1999, having to give up plans with my sisters and friends to stay home on the couch with my boyfriend at the time. I fell asleep shortly after 2000 began. And then 10 years whipped by and there I was last night, ringing in the new year by myself on the couch with a bottle of champagne! No, I didn't drink the entire bottle. And I wasn't totally by myself, I was chatting with good phriends in the PH chat room. Not a bad way to celebrate the beginning of 2011!
This past week has been one of the best weeks I've had in a very long time. I can't begin to describe how happy I was to spend time, as short as it was, with my ENTIRE family for a few days. I'm so glad that Lisa was able to come home, and we all really enjoyed our time together. Dinner on Tuesday night was fabulous, opening Christmas gifts and just hanging out watching the kids play on Wednesday night was wonderful, and skipping rehab on Thursday to go to the mall with Lisa and her little family was great! Thursday night at my parents having dinner and watching the little one play was enjoyable as well. I really wish they could've been here longer, but I'm just thankful they were able to come at all. It definitely ended up feeling like Christmas after all!
I have no resolutions for the year. I stopped making them a few years ago. I already exercise, I eat pretty healthy, I'd be stupid if I tried losing weight, there just isn't anything I can think of to resolve myself in doing for the year. If I feel I need to work on something to improve myself or my situation, then I do it as it comes up. I take things one day at a time, living my life and making decisions as best I know how, and I just plan to continue doing that. It seems to work so far!
This first day of the new year, I spent with good friends. I went to Michael's craft store to find some beads with Dee, and then we met Renee and Michelle at Barnes & Noble for coffee. After a few hours, Dee and I left, and we ended up getting dinner. I didn't get home until after 6, and after taking a bath while drinking some lovely champagne, I'm very sleepy! So I am off to bed, but I am so thankful that I had a great week, and good start to the new year. Here's hoping it continues to be a wonderful 2011!!
