2014 has arrived
The year of the horse begins on January 31st. It is going to be a great year.
Last night was a little wild. People here spend so much money on fireworks, it is unbelievable. I've been through 23 new years here and I still can not get over it. I wish I had that kind of money to burn. Literally... Anyway, makes it fun for me to watch without spending a dime.
Yesterday ended up being pretty good. A couple of things happened that have added some possibilities to the new year. Turns out Hubby knows the person in charge of hiring at Damien. That's really good. Also, an ad was posted yesterday on Craigslist that is exactly the kind of thing I want to do with Ph.D. I am sending the application off today and keeping my fingers crossed. I was going to send it yesterday, but since 2013 wasn't all that hot to begin with, I decided to wait and try the luck of the new year. Fingers crossed.
Yesterdays eating didn't go as well as planned. I ended up having some cookies and cookie butter in the late afternoon. That was probably due to the fact that I only had breakfast at 11, and then nothing else. Really need to break that habit. But, I will. I only have a few more days left at home and then it's back to school and routine. I'm looking forward to getting things started though. Our traditional new years breakfast is eggs benedict and mimosas. After that, I am done with eating like that. I'm going strict paleo, for at least a couple of weeks. I need to get a handle on things and the only for me to do it is to get strict with myself.
Today though, I have things due. So I will be busy working on school work, both schools. Here's to an awesome year.
