Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
I hope that everyone had a great Christmas with their loved ones and that all of their hopes and dreams came true during this miraculous season!
I have been meaning to do a personal blog post since Christmas Eve but I haven’t been feeling the best. I have bronchitis again. I went to urgent care a few days ago and they gave me another steroid injection plus a duo-neb treatment.
Needless to say, I was very sick for Christmas day. I feel like I blinked and Christmas was over before I got to fully enjoy it.
I did have a good Christmas morning with my mom and sister and we were all even awake before 5 am to open our gifts.
I got some clothing, new journals, more Diamond Dotz, and a bunch of other odds and ends. Christmas time is my absolute favorite time of year so I pretty much threw a bunch of temper tantrums like a little kid since I wasn’t feeling well and feel like I wasted the holiday/
New Years Eve
New Year’s Eve was pretty uneventful. I spend most of the day with a close loved one and we went to bed well before 9 pm. We just couldn’t keep our eyes open anymore.
I went to my loved one’s house where we binged watched the old Unsolved Mysteries before flipping it to 1000 Ways to Die and going to bed for the night.
I can definitely say the way my NYE turned out, I feel much older than 33-years-old. I wish I could have brought in the New Year with some wine or mixed drinks, but that can’t happen anymore.
So, going to bed earlier seemed like the most logical thing to do.
I am still not feeling the best, but I am much better than I was even on Christmas day.
I hope that everyone had a safe and happy New Year’s Eve celebration!
New Years Day
I came back to my mom’s house around 8:30 in the morning and I have been so tired and fatigued that I haven’t done much of anything today.
It’s even an internal struggle just to create this post. I just haven’t been feeling the whole writing thing again. I have a lot on my plate and a lot to start thinking about.
At my mom’s, we are having our family traditional pork on sauerkraut with mashed potatoes for our New Years Day dinner.
We are Pennsylvania Dutch, and as said in our family, eating pork and sauerkraut for a New Years Dinner is supposed to bring about good luck throughout the new year. At least that is what I was told while growing up.
Whatever your New Years’ traditions are, I hope that you have a great new year! May 2020 be better than 2019 was for most of us!
I am going into the new year without any expectations because I don’t want to be let down time and time again. I do know one thing though, January is going to bring a lot of change for me.
