We just got home from a lovely dinner with family, probably our last opportunity to see my youngest stepdaughter before she returns to school in NYC. It’s always fun having the kids together!
I have to admit that, taste-wise, it was one of the best meals I’ve had all week, even if it was only Red Lobster. My garden salad, with Thousand Island dressing, was easily the tastiest thing I’ve had in a while. I’m not sure why my taste buds picked tonight to finally kick in, but I was glad.
It’s been a melancholy-sort of weekend for me, and I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s the ridiculous cold and snow (last winter was better!), but stuck in the house for a few days. Maybe the end-of-the-year, after-Christmas blues? Maybe it’s five rounds of chemo catching up to me? Or some combination thereof. But it’s been tough getting out of bed in the morning. For work, I am hitting the snooze button too many times, and on the weekend, I stayed in bed for an hour after I woke up. I just couldn’t motivate myself to get up. Even in the shower, I found myself standing mindlessly under the hot water for way too long (with no hair to wash and no need to shave my legs, I’m usually done quickly!) And, as you know, I didn’t even blog.
Today was a little better, as I had some fun playing Wii-U and foosball with my boys, and I’m looking forward to a family game night to celebrate the New Year. I don’t know about you guys, but I personally will be looking forward to ringing in 2013. And what better way to do that then having some laughs with family?
