Happy New Year everyone!
I hope that the Holidays were relaxing and enjoyable. I myself did not escape the cold. It was cold, but at least the sun was out to give the illusion of warmth.
This year my Mom gave me Costco gift cards for Christmas and last week James and I went to Costco for the first time in awhile (I haven’t been to Costco for two years until now) and let me tell you, Costco is a wonderland. We were both wide-eyed and amazed constantly showing things to one another that we wanted to buy as we went through the store. Almost every time something got put in the cart one of us would comment, “we’re gonna be good on [insert item here] for a while now” or “there’s so many in here!” or “what a good deal!” And that’s when I realized how easy it is to spend $100 at Costco, but it was worth it.
I also learned that it’s really easy to spend $100 on Amazon too. lol Again, totally worth it when I bought icing tips (for baking), makeup, and skin care while James upgraded a few parts of his computer.
I guess the bummer of the holiday this year was that I really wanted was an essential oil diffuser, but found out it’s unsafe for cats, so I got
yet another bath and body works candle. Just out of curiosity, does anyone actually buy lotions/body wash/bath goos from that place anymore? Because the only thing I’ve bought from there for the past four years are candles. They should call themselves “candles r us”.
Looking back, I didn’t make resolutions for 2017. This was probably because I caught a cold on New Year’s Eve and couldn’t be bothered to think of anything. But this year I’m healthy and whole so here are my goals for the year:
- Read for pleasure before going to bed. Even if I’m really tired and I only get a paragraph before falling asleep. The whole, “I don’t have time to read for fun anymore” isn’t an excuse anymore.
- Reconnect with people. I admit, last year I hermit-ted in lab that I lost touch with some people that I used to be really close to. I want to reach out to those people again because they’re important to who I am now.
Now that I’ve announced it, I’m counting on y’all to hold me accountable this year! 🙂
See you soon!
