I'm excited for what 2009 will bring. I had another long break, and it was so relaxing. I went to the Flobots concert at the Gothic on New Years Eve, and spent New Years Day sleeping in, catching up on shows on my dvr, and cooking chicken scampi, which is such a treat. Friday and Saturday was spent with the familia, and Sunday entailed lunch with Kristen and lots and lots of laundry.
I did manage to rent a few movies from Redbox. I saw Ballet Shoes, with Hermionie from Harry Potter. It was a really good movie, I enjoyed it. Oh, and I found about Inside Redbox, a website which gives promo codes for the movies. I used a couple over the weekend--it's a great deal. Who can resist free movies??
I was so wound up with energy last night that I went to bed way way too late. And I started off my morning trying to take the bus per usual, only to remember that my eco pass has expired. Our office was out of renewal forms, so it was a good thing I drove today. Work in general hasn't been as crazed as it was before the holidays, so it's nice to come back and not be stressed out. It's crazy windy out here. I have to go to the library, but I'm seriously not sure--I might just drive there. At least I have a car. I'm looking forward to watching the Bachelor tonight--who can resist Jason?!
Looking back on 2008, it went by way too fast, and I still haven't really reflected on it, but I think one thing I hope to bring to the new year is perspective. I realized it's very important, and I just hope I can keep it throughout the year.
