It is New Year’s Eve and it has been over a week since I have posted anything. I have attempted to write a couple of times, but have felt so uninspired and maybe even a little depressed. This always seems to happen to me after the holiday. Christmas comes and goes and I end up feeling like I missed it. I think there is so much hype and preparation, not to mention, pressure and in my case, it’s spending another holiday season without my parents, coupled with being sick on and off for almost two months and, when you aren’t feeling 100% , it’s really hard to truly enjoy anything to it’s fullest. I had a bunch of lab work done on Tuesday, so hopefully I’ll get the results today and be on the mend soon.
You were as cute as ever Christmas morning and loved rolling back and forth under the Christmas tree looking up at all the lights and ornaments. You especially loved all the wrapping paper and we got some very cute photos of you in the middle of it. You kept the smile on my face all week and I am grateful.
I enjoyed being with my sister and in-laws and spending time with friends over the week of Christmas, but I’m ready to slow down and resume our simple little lives. We have been busy the last few days; celebrating your dad’s 38th birthday on Tuesday night by having several friends over and going out last night with to watch my alma mater, University of Arizona get their asses kicked in the Holiday Bowl. We have absolutely no plans tonight to ring in the new year and I am just fine with that. Your dad fell going down the stairs this morning and is at the doctor’s office now having his ankle x-rayed, so a quiet night in will be perfect. I hope we can stay up until midnight!
I’m looking forward to a new year and a new decade and finding inspiration again soon. With you and your dad by my side, I shouldn’t have to much difficulty with that.
However you choose to celebrate tonight, have fun and please be safe.
The best is yet to be.
