Wow. Did I really only post one blog entry since Christmas break started? What a month.
My New Year’s Resolutions are
1) make my bed every day
2) carve out and protect at least three hours a week for writing.
…so hopefully I’ll have more motivation and self-discipline with which to entertain you in 2009. I should up that amount to an hour a day, but I have to be realistic.
The kids went back to school today (oh, cursed alarm clock!), and of course it was cold and rainy. After dropping Nathan off, I came back home to eat my breakfast, and I had a decision to make.
Work out…or take a nap?
Oh, stop laughing at me. I don’t even have to tell you what I decided to do.
But let me tell you this, it was the BEST nap I’ve ever had. Or at least it ranked right up there with coming home from a colonoscopy before the drugs had worn off.
It was an hour and a half of complete, uninterrupted silence. My house was cold, but my bed was so warm!
Bed wins every time.
Sleep trumps everything.
Ev-er-ee-thing. Every time.
I felt so much better when I woke up. And to top off my day, when I went to Costco, what did I find next to the frozen orange juice but the reusable shopping bags I have waited MONTHS for! I had serious shopping bag envy when we loaded up Gretchen’s bags on the way to Kelley’s Island last summer, and when I got home, Costco had rotated them out of their regular stock.
Sidenote here: that is the one thing that irritates me about Costco. I find a product I love, but I can only buy it for a few months before it goes away. That, and they stopped carrying Light Ranch dressing.
So I grabbed a stack of bags, and my happy day was complete.
It’s gonna be a great year.
