After driving for 3 days straight we've returned to Colorado from our Californian Christmas Adventure. But, since we've arrived we've been working non stop to get the kitchen renovation buttoned up. And in the process it seems like I've lost all semblance of excited New Year Spirit.
My house is a mess
My clothes/dishes/furniture are all over the place
My hair is grown to an uncomfortable length
My waist is the biggest it's ever been
My work is the same exact pile of stuff I left here in December
My food is basically expensive take out that is starting to taste the same
Nothing seems new or fresh right now
Well, that's not entirely true...
As each screw goes into the wall to anchor our brand new kitchen cabinets my heart starts to beat a little more excited. And when my husband and dad had the beautiful new white farmhouse sink in place last night I may have done a little happy dance across the room. And my sister is coming to visit next week.
So when LG decides to finally ship us our appliances (topic for another post) I might take the ear doctor out to a fancy dinner and stay up until midnight to re-ring in 2010. Until then, I'm just going to pretend that the new year hasn't happened yet.
Is that OK?
