Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 

I know. I kind of dropped off the map for the last week. I feel a little guilty about it, but not too much. Only when I check my Google Reader and see 400+ unread posts recapping 2010 and welcoming 2011. Then I feel like I am already behind on this year, even though we’re on Day 2. Oh well, goal recaps and resolutions will come soon. It just wasn’t a priority over my holiday break. 

In fact, my entire life stopped for about five days. Those days consisted of waking up late, eating hearty brunches, playing games with my sisters, napping in pajamas (because I never took them off), helping my dad make fires, and taking my dog on three walks a day in the snowy neighborhood.

It was fabulous. 

Now I have a holiday hangover and the last thing I want to do is put on real clothes and go back to work tomorrow. But I think I am ready for a routine again. Well, even if I’m not ready, I need to have a routine or I fear I may just melt into a full-time brunch napping sluggard. 

It is extremely helpful to have a new apartment to motivate me. North Carolina got hit with snow on Christmas day for the first time in decades, so our moving plans were derailed and I didn’t end up moving in until Thursday. Already my things are put away and it feels like home.

Okay, that’s all I’ve got today. I have to ease into this “routine” thing, you know. 

Hope all of you had a great Christmas and New Years! Anyone else having a hard adjustment to reality, or is it just me?

  • It feels like home you said, how perfect.

    I hate returning to work after a holiday, 5 minutes inside the place and you feel as if you have never been away, Still tomorrow here i come.

    happy new year!

  • Your break sounds like bliss! For some reason, I can’t sleep in too late. I think I’ve been ruined (by work!) and now I can’t sleep past 7 AM!! In college, that definitely wasn’t a problem. Maybe that will be my resolution for this year. Anywho, glad to see you’re back!
