Welcome to a new year! A year that will result in another awesome year at our awesome house, a Masters degree for me, a trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida, a new school for Lex (high school!), and I’m sure so much more.
We celebrated NYE in the usual homebody way. We watched a movie, played some games, ate Cheetos (somehow that has become a tradition), opened our Family Fun Jar, and watched the ball drop. Not only did we all stay awake until midnight, but we did so easily! I was enjoying our evening immensely, but when we turned on the TV and saw all the people in Times Square, wearing dumb hats from Planet Fitness, even dumber 2019 glasses, and even dumber plastic bags — standing in the cold rain — I enjoyed our cozy family evening even more.
Today has been a quiet one. I just finished book #6 of vacation, Lex and Alan played a lot of Minecraft and are now out shoveling water our of our driveway (crazy winter!), and Eve spent the afternoon at Macy’s house.
Happy 2019 to all. Maybe it be a year of fun and excitement and peace and fulfillment. <
