HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY JANUARY! Hello. I hope everyone had a nice time ringing in 2013. We kept it very mellow this year–we ate pho, cuddled up, had some Bailey’s, protected the dog from the doom-inducing firework sounds, smooched at midnight and called it a night. It was nice to not go anywhere this year. No worry about driving home after a fun night is nice!
I took some days off this year which I sorely needed. I was feeling refreshed and had planned on being back here with gusto this week, but the universe had other plans for me. This past Saturday, I somehow managed to injure my calf muscle to the point of not being able to walk and it hurts… a lot. I’ll know more about the extent of the injury when I get in to see a specialist today. Crossing fingers that it’s minor and I’ll be back on my feet soon.
I’m really looking forward to more fun here this year and some lovely things I’ve been working on. I’ll have a few posts this week, but the big New Year’s intentions list and a few other posts I’d planned will have to wait until next week. See, I’m already following one of my 2013 resolutions–to prioritize my health and well-being!
Happiest wishes to you all in the New Year! It’s been a little trying so far, but I have high hopes for this Year of the Snake and I’m so glad to be in such lovely company! xx Jen
