Welcome to 2011!

Happy New Year!

It's been a lazy day for The Hubs and I. We've spent most of the day reading (me), playing computer games (The Hubs) and watching telly. Late this afternoon I went to my mom's house and took her Christmas decorations down for her because she's in the middle day of her three 12-hour days in a row working. I try to be helpful when I can.

We had a tasty dinner tonight, even if I do say so myself! We enjoyed a meal of cauliflower, leek and cheese (with mushrooms) and cubed steak. It wasn't much, but we both really enjoyed it. I just haven't felt like doing a lot of cooking over the last few days, which is unlike me. Usually I'm eager to cook things, particularly new things. Lately, though, I've just been feeling a little lazy/bored.

I'm so glad it's a long weekend. I feel so tired! And the increase of Metformin is not yet sitting well with my stomach. It's nice to have an extra day before having to go back to work. Also, I'm really enjoying the time I'm getting to spend with The Hubs. It's been nice to just cuddle all day and not have to worry about being anywhere in particular. One more day, though, and it's back to work. Now I just have to hold out another couple of months and we're off to Vegas! I can hardly wait!

I changed my blog layout today. I'm not sure how I feel about this one. It's kind of faded, but I'm not going to worry about it. I'll be changing it for Valentine's Day in a few days. I did move the list of books I read in 2010 to its own page and also started a page for books read in 2011. Believe it or not, I've already managed to finish one book and start on another! I fell well short of my goal of reading 100 books last year, so I want to be sure to get off to a good start this year. I do think I'll lower my goal this year, but still keep it higher than what I left last year. I'll have to think and declare my goal in a day or so.

Anyway, I'm off now to clean up the kitchen and then maybe play a game with The Hubs. Hope you all have a wonderful evening!

Hugs,

I used to read like that...and it seems to have gotten away from me. But your determination makes me want to fit it in again around other things :) Happy New Year! And it's totally okay to be lazy every now and then...sometimes you just need a break.

Happy new year! Sorry the metformin is being mean. I hope you get used to it soon. Enjoy the rest of the weekend ;)

Hope you start feeling better soon and that increase in metformin does it's job! We had a nice lazy day too. I only changed out of my PJs to go to the grocery store! I hope 2011 brings amazing things to both of us!
