Christmas 2008

Merry Christmas all!! What a wonderful day I had today. It is 8:30pm in Austin and I am still in the same clothes that I put on this morning after I got out of bed. No shower, my hair is still sticking up in places and I've only been out of this comfy chair to cook and eat. We had Brassy over for x-mas eve and then most of the day today. It was fabulous. Her little mini-me was with her dad this Christmas so we took her in and made her our honorary child for the day. :)

We were pretty good this year, we didn't overspend, I have a bad habit of doing that. We set a limit and I stayed really close to it. Trainer did really well this year. My favorite presents are my new books from the Twilight series. We were in the bookstore the other week getting my dad his gift and I passed by the display and said, "Hmmm, I really want to read those..." but I didn't pick them up because we're trying to save money. I didn't think Trainer was paying attention, yet I was wrong. He also got me some nice smelly lotion that I wanted, a cute tank to sleep in and a CD that I wanted! Very nice.

Last night Brassy, Trainer and I stayed up late doing 'woo-woo' stuff. We were reading tarot and burning incense, all that great stuff. Trainer was actually pretty receptive to it! That was a first. This is a really good year for him and really, career wise, it has been. Not that the business is super profitable yet, but just the fact that he's out on his own is HUGE! We've had many ups and downs this year, but the business is definitely an 'up.'

Now comes the part of the year where we evaluate everything that we've done and what we're going to do in the new year. It's another big year for us. We'll be growing the business and planning for a 10 year anniversary that we'll celebrate with family and friends in Cabo. Same place we were married. I'm excited about it.

Goals for this year....yeah, I didn't do a great job on my goals. I'll have to set some for next year. As always I'll have the 'lose 10 lbs' on there. Tomorrow I'm going to look at gyms and see which one I'd like to commit to. I need to see what race I'd like to do next year, see where I want to focus my energies, and make sure that I don't try and bite off more than I can chew...which I generally do. Work wise I need to set some boundaries (I'm bad at that too) and make sure that I am taking care of myself. I haven't been blogging because I've been working more and have no energy left for the things that make me happy. All things to think about...*sigh*...

Well, I hope that everyone had a great day today. I love the spirit of giving, it makes me happy to see people happy. Love to you all. Be safe, happy and blissful.

O.M.G., I'm SO excited for you- and jealous- that you're going to read Twilight for the first time! I remember my first time (insert sensuous sigh here...) Just remember- Edward Cullen is all mine, Missy. ;-)

I'm glad you had such a wonderful holiday. Here's to many, many more in your future, and to a bright, Happy New Year!
