I knew I was tired going into New Year's Eve, but I was exhausted. I needed this catch up sleep so badly. Especially since I was finally feeling 100% healthy for the first time in over a month after a couple, back to back, long lasting colds.
I rang in the New Year in bed, slept late today, ate a breakfast big enough to feed a family of four, went back to bed, got up and wend to an afternoon movie where I ate candy and popcorn and then, I actually went to the hotel fitness room and worked out! For real, like ran two miles and lifted weights, did dips, abs, all that good stuff. Why? Because I then went to dinner and ate a dinner big enough to feed a pack of wild boars. I had a beer too.
I can't believe that sleeping in a hotel and eating like a pig has become my dream get away, but for now, I can't think of anything else I'd rather do. I can't think of anything else I'd have the energy to do either. Later this winter, I'd like to go snowboarding, maybe take my little Aubrey sledding, but for now, I'm all about sleep.
Oh and I did make a New Year's resolution and, like my current location, I'm not sharing that either. It's personal and needs to stay that way. 2009 was both wonderful and horrible for me and I hope I learned from the horrible and enjoyed the wonderful as best I could. My best friend made a list of her 2009 accomplishments and I thought that was such a cool thing to do. We often get caught up in the negative in life, focus on the "should haves" and forget to stop and appreciate how far we've come. I was a little upset that some things I really wanted in 2009 didn't happen, but it's a new year and there's no use dwelling on the past. Onward to 2010! Attack attack attack... right after I'm done sleeping for one more day.
