This week was crazy. Never a dull moment in our lives these days.
For me, it was work. I have a lot of year end work that I have to do so I had to work on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Also, if you remember from my last post, Scott was in Nashville for the bowl game. Before he left, he started to get a little of my sickness. Well when he came back, it was full force. Mainly due to not eating, drinking copious amounts of alcohol and then standing outside in subzero temperatures.
So, we did not do anything on New Year’s Eve.
Not many of our friends did anything this year. I was glad that we didn’t have to come up with a lame excuse this year to avoid parties or going out.
It was on a Thursday…close enough…
This week was also my birthday week 🙂
I turned 30 on January 4th.
I will tell you, I took this birthday in stride. I did not think I would handle this birthday very well, but I did. Overall, I do not feel 30. I may look it, but I don’t feel it at all. I don’t really know what age I feel. I’m the healthiest that I’ve ever been in my life. I’m stronger than I’ve ever been. I’m just glad that I don’t feel 30.
I think a lot of my new year’s resolutions also came from me turning 30. I don’t know why. But I just feel like I just need to do better this year. And be better this year. So, that’s what I’m going to try to do.
The day after my birthday, January 5th, I did something very cool.
I met with a psychic. I know, que all the skepticism. But it was really badass. I heard about her through a friend. I had been debating on going to see her for over 6 months. I scheduled the appointment about a month ago and I only told my friend. I didn’t tell Scott because he doesn’t believe in this stuff and I didn’t want him to be a downer on my parade.
