January: highs and lows

The best stuff

  • New Year’s Eve
  • Watching The Office pretty much every night
  • Time spent with family and friends (birthday dinners; brunch at our place; nights out and nights spent staying in)
  • My birthday celebration(s)
  • Finally trying gin, and never drinking anything else
  • Singing karaoke by myself for the second time
  • Doug’s birthday celebration(s)
  • Buying tickets for Cabaret in March (!!!! still over the moon about this)
  • Getting a Wii U
  • Seeing Birdman and The Imitation Game – two incredible films
  • Teaching Zumba to my kiddos
  • Getting the ball rolling for my student teaching internship
  • Three snow days in less than a week
  • New brewery opening up downtown
  • Helping one of our best friends buy a car
  • Getting a new TV stand and rearranging our living room
  • Putting together said TV stand by myself
  • Classes and professors I’m really enjoying
  • Playing in the snow with my kiddos
  • Seeing two of my best friends who live far away
  • Our “anti” Superbowl party (we ended up watching it)
  • Making BBQ apple cheddar pork pie

The worst stuff

  • Getting sick, thinking I was better, getting sick again, etc.
  • Tax-related stresses (that have since been resolved)
  • Struggling with getting back into an exercise routine
  • All of the money we’ve spent on our cars (registration fees and repairs)
  • Annoyances related to our neighbors (what else is new?)

You know life is good when it’s much easier to think of happy things than sad things. 🙂
