So, my week after Christmas hasn't been that hectic. I mean, I've had church things and work and such... but mostly, I haven't been running around like crazy or anything. I just haven't felt much like going online to post anything. My mom and sister have had the flu... and so for the past few days I have been psyching myself out thinking that I am getting it. I haven't though. But last night I honestly wasn't feeling all that hot... so Cory and I stopped halfway through a movie and I went to bed... and he drove 40 mins back home. We didn't stay up to watch the ball drop. Of course, I don't have cable so we couldn't have really seen it anyway--unless we found something online that was streaming video. We didn't go out or party (we don't party anyway). We were both home and in our beds when the clock struck midnight... and I'm OK with that! I am meeting him out at the new house today to go over some "improvements" that we'd like done before he moves in. He has a relative who will do the work for us (and we are VERY GRATEFUL)... so we may not have to live with bright orange kitchen counters and weird colored paneling! LOL! But we'll see. We will only do what we can afford--and I don't know how much that will be yet.
I still haven't taken my Christmas Tree down. I wasn't even going to put one up... but I decided to use my pencil tree and switch the decorations from my usual (year round) "sun and moon" ornaments... to the gaudy Christmas ornaments that I love so much! I couldn't afford a real tree this year... but this one worked nicely!
I don't think I have any pictures of me and Cory from Christmas (my mom might have a couple on her camera)--so I will share a couple of others. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!
My Cousin, Mekka... and Me on Christmas Eve (photo cred-Jax, my 3 yr old nephew... LOL!):
(You can tell that the curlers did NOTHING to help my hair! lol)
