Well, here we are another holiday season is here. It just dawned on me today that this weekend is really the last weekend for me to get all of my gifts out of the way. Thank goodness my family is still small, no marriages, no procreating going on...so all in all the shopping can wait until the last minute, which may be 12/21. I hate using my 2 days off from work on this kind of stuff. Yes, I really am that selfish.
I don't have anything exciting to tell you about. This is the time of year I like to hermit. I'm not big into the holidays, in fact I skip half of the parties I'm invited to. Not because I don't love my friends or want to see people I just need my time alone. I've got to think about the past year get everything into perspective- the positives/the negatives...what needs to change, what's already changing...where am I in my list of things I wish to do in my lifetime. You get the picture.
It has been a good year. I won't bore you with details just the major one. My major goal for 2006 was to buy a condo. When I made this decision I was un-employed and no job on the horizon. I was cracking up when writing this down, but somehow managed to pull this off in early spring time. Don't get me wrong this place needs some work, but I finally feel like Austin will be my home for a very long time and coming from a commitment phobic chic this is pretty big!!
I haven't figured out this coming year quite yet, but apparently quitting my job seemed to be a good way to start;)
