2011 is upon us, and I know a lot of people are talking about their 2011 resolutions. As a general rule, I make new year’s resolutions, but soon forget them… like a week later. I mean, I don’t even remember what my resolutions were last year. So this year I’m just resolving to live life. Wish me luck, as this is something I don’t think I can forget to do.
The Christmas holiday was fun and family-filled. If you read my last post, you’ll know that one of my favorite parts of Christmas is family. Instead of celebrating at my grandma’s house, though, it was at my Aunt April’s. I don’t know what that means for Easter, but we’ll see. It was great, either way. We ate more than our share of yummy food, hung out with family members we never see (and some we always see). I painted a family tree for my Aunt Paula who is into genealogy and my cousin Amanda made me a set of really nice earrings.
My uncle Donnie gave my cousin Autumn a record player and a whole bunch of cool records like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and The Beatles’ White Album. That was a present I was really jealous of! I told her if she ever got tired of it, I’m next in line.
It snowed on Christmas which got me stuck at Sean’s house until Tuesday, but I wasn’t worried. The people at my work were understanding because even grumpy old Atlanta got 2 inches of snow in some places. Although Tennessee beat them with 8-12 inches in the mountains.
For the new year, Sean and I watched “How To Train your Dragon” and then Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve (I love that title). After the ball in New York and the Peach in Georgia both dropped. We toasted our sparkling grape juice, and hit the hay! 12:05 A.M. is like a million hours too late for me to manage.
So here’s to a great end to 2010 and the resolution to live 2011, and maybe not worry about life so much!
