It's taken me a little while from the craziness that was my Christmas holiday this year. It didn't help that I got sick the day after Christmas and have been trying to recover from that as well. Not that it wasn't a great Christmas, because it was, it was just an exhausting one. It felt so good to come home after it was all over. My husband and I spent a few hours cleaning our house (its gets pretty dirty when we have to prepare to travel somewhere) and then just laid in bed for hours.
We spent about two days hanging out, just the two of us. We used some of our gift cards and went to the local movie theater and saw Avatar and Sherlock Holmes, two great movies by the way. Yesterday was our first day of trying to get back into the swing of things and get our daily disciplines back on schedule. I'm still struggling with getting back into the swing of things because I've just started reading this amazing book series called The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. If you're looking for a new book series to start, this is the one.
Anyway, today is New Year's Eve, and it feels like my husband and I are heading back into holiday mode. It's hard to get back into your daily life during the holidays! But its also really fun to take a break from everyday life and do things that are really fun. Tonight my husband and I will be partying with my side of the family, which will be fun. I'll get to put into use my new pair of Cruel Girl jeans and my new Alexandra de Markoff cosmetics. I love partying with family. I'll probably bring one of these with me for everyone to share. Have a great New Years!
