How’s 2011 treating you so far? Still on track with your resolutions, if you had any?
I think I am doing well. NYE started a bit rough, though. Jamie and I were going up to my parents for dinner, and the roads were slick as popsicles. We didn’t get up the hill, but me – being my persistent self – INSISTED that I try at least one more time. Jamie sighed and got out of the car. Long story short – I managed to crash the car into a huge rock. No big damage was done to the car, except for a broken headlight. Anyways, I now had to walk up a steep, slippery hill with my 6 inches peep-toe Nine West heels. (That, on the other hand, went smooth.)
Next, at dinner, the centerpiece candle fell over at least two times before anyone considered it an option to move it to another place so it wouldn’t set the table on fire.
Oh, and discussing politics with your immediate family over dinner is never a good idea. Trust me. Things can get very heated.
However, with drinks coming and fireworks going off, we all had a good time and welcomed the new year with champagne toasts.
Since I got a “nice” letter from my doctor before the holidays telling me I have iron deficiency, I have stocked up on iron pills, vitamins and fish oil. My fridge has lots of green in it, and I am slowly cutting the carbs. I also have a part-time job every other weekend that definitely does not include sitting on my ass, so at least I get to move around quite a bit.
Here’s to hoping 2011 will be a healthy, happy and successful year!
