Last night I was actually home alone, and went to bed before midnight. That's really where I wanted to be. I've been waiting for this stressful holiday season to be over. We moved, hosted Halloween and Thanksgiving, went to the West Coast for a week, and Florida and then upstate NY for another week. It was a crazy 2 months. I was happy to spend the night in my own bed for once, on my own schedule. I took a long bath and finished my last book of 2008 first. I did wake up just after midnight for a minute, and that was nice.
This morning I woke happily at 9, hours early for me. I ate breakfast (yobaby, hardboiled egg, toast), did my morning routine (taking care of all the animals), and stopped at Starbucks on my way to Jeanne's. I hadn't seen her, or my horse, in weeks. We had a fun morning and I made us tuna melts for lunch in her mom's kitchen.
I stopped at Harris Teeter on my way home to pick up dinner for tomorrow. Tonight's dinner was brining in my fridge--I roasted a chicken. In the same pan were carrots, 3 kinds of mini potatoes, onions, and a sweet potato. James got me a Roomba for Christmas, and I had it vacuum my house while the chicken cooked and I hung out with the kittens and ferrets. James got home from work not long before the chicken was ready. We toasted the New Year with some champagne and chowed down. I did burn my left hand though :/ Now we're watching "Witness to Jonestown."
Today was pretty much a perfect day. Tomorrow should be good too. I have a riding lesson in the morning. I'm making chicken and tomato pasta for dinner. James will be home until night time. My floors are clean! Happy 2009!
