|| On New Year's Eve my suspicions were confirmed: I married an old man. I realized this when he wanted to go somewhere else because the bar was packed, when in reality it was pretty empty. When we got home, I was so annoyed with him. I wanted the night to be legendary...epic...the best night ever before we settle down and have babies! But it was nothing of the sorts and I was bummed about it at first. Then I realized that epic and legendary weren't part of my life anymore, at least not in the lets go out to dance and party all night kind of way. That's never been my style and honestly it's not something I've ever really enjoyed or have done since high school. Maybe I told myself that it is bcause that's what other people my age do or my friends do, but that's not me. I don't get fancy and wear a lot of makeup(though I do dress nice and look presentable), I don't like heels, and I sure as hell would never wear a super short dress when its 10 degrees outside so someone would think I'm sexy. Not even for my husband. So not worth in my opinion because I look just as sexy warm! By the time morning rolled around and I saw Vince when he returned from skiing, I was no longer annoyed with him. We didnt have a legendary night where we were up until dawn, but we were with each other. Next year I can assure you we will be at home, more than likely sleeping. All in all, though, it was a pretty good night filled with 1 1/2 gin and tonics, seeing old friends, and making fun of my husband.
|| Something I realized was that I just don't like drinking. While I love the taste of some drinks, I don't like being buzzed, let alone drunk, so it's pointless to spend $4+ on an alcoholic drink. So I'm just not going to drink anymore! I very rarely drink as it is, and when I do I get down maybe half a glass before I pass it off to Vince, so it's not much of a change.
|| Vince got me a cute jacket for Christmas! So much better than my first Christmas gift. I want it to be warmer so I can wear it. It's not quite warm enough when it's below freezing outside. Thanks, but I'll stick with my Patagonia for now!
|| School starts in less than two weeks and I'm not ready. My house still isn't clean, I haven't ordered my books, and I like being able to sleep in until 9 instead of being in class at 8. I've still got time to get in school-mode, though, so I'm sure I'll be ready in time.
|| Taxes! I'm hoping we get a good chunk of money back this year.
|| My niece turns two today. WHAT. It seems like she was just born and now she's walking and talking and terrorizing everyone around her.
|| I start my lab tech job on Wednesday! My boss says she is super excited for me to work for her, so that's a good thing.
|| Entertaining the idea of being a naturopathic doctor and going to this school specifically. Thoughts?
