I'm so relieved this holiday season is over. There were fantastic parts of the season, like seeing family in California and ringing in 2013 with great friends, but overall this year the holidays kicked my ass. I didn't have any time off work, and every regular day off for the last three weeks was filled with traveling, visiting with friends and family, and eating and drinking way more than usual. While these are all things that I enjoy doing, combining them into one crazy time of year can be quite exhausting!
Today was my first regular day off in a while, and it has been glorious! After making sure to sleep in, I skipped church to lounge around a little longer, then Joe and I hit the gym for an enjoyable, not rushed workout. Some people might not put "go to the gym" on their relaxing day to-do list, but it's something that makes me feel happy and better about life overall. We grabbed groceries on the way home, and spent the afternoon packing away Christmas decorations and getting the house back into working order. Now the house is clean and clutter free, and I'm getting ready to make a nice dinner and enjoy a little more couch time. There is a place in life for lazy Sundays.
I'm going to get back to blogging more in the next couple days, I swear. Today is just a quick "I'm Still Alive" post, to get the creative blogging juices flowing again. So, expect some more holiday pictures, resolutions, and updates on life in our corner of Chicago coming soon!
