just sitting here.

I’ve really wanted to blog lately, but haven’t felt exactly pulled into any particular topic.  This might just have to be an end-of-the-year kind of tie up loose ends sort of post today.

The first thing that comes to mind is that for probably the first time since oh, first grade, I got straight A’s.  I honestly wasn’t sure how the semester was going to turn out.  I figured it would be the usual smattering of A’s and B’s, and honestly thought I could end up with all B’s, which is not ideal, but it was a tough semester, so I was mentally ready to accept it.  But last Saturday I had the thought to see if my grades were posted yet, and they were, and so off we were to the wine bar where I happily ordered a $12 glass of bordeaux and celebrated my superior intelligence.  Or luck.  Or thankfulness for online classes which have open-book, open-notes tests.  Or being glad I am done with my science courses. Let’s just be honest here, which is that I will find just about any excuse to reward myself with a glass of wine.

Which brings me to my next point is that I suppose I am finally joining the masses when I say that I do have some health and fitness goals for 2010.  I usually stay away from making any major resolutions for any given year, what with my record for not accomplishing goals.  However, a change has been looming for awhile, and it happens to coincide with the beginning of the year.  All I want is to lose ten pounds.  That’s it.  Just think of all the things in my wardrobe I could fit again!  Wedding dress included.  Also, I turn 30 this year, and by golly I want to look hot at 30.  

Next thought: So Christmas happened.  Mine was pretty boring.  I worked really hard right up until 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve, and basically crashed out on Christmas Day, and the two days following.  We didn’t decorate or even give each other gifts.  I did cook a nice dinner though, which was the only sign that some kind of holiday was happening, but other than that, a pretty low-key Christmas here.  Next year I think I’d like to do things a little differently, like maybe actually traveling to see family, or at least putting a wreath over the fireplace or something.  Best thing about Christmas was breakfast, which was a spinach and cheese strata.  It was delicious. 

Other than that, I’m just spending some time decompressing from last semester and the craziness at work.  I’m taking some time off work next week if all goes according to plan, and am excited to spend a couple of days off with Doug, and also to get a few things done around the apartment if I can quit procrastinating already!  Kitchen cupboards, back bedroom, entry-way closet, etc.  

Well, that’s all I have.  Hope everyone has a great new year!
