It's New Years Eve!

I can't believe 2013 is basically over. Where did the time go?

We had a pretty low key weekend. Friday when I got off work at 2:00 I went straight home. This hasn't happened since I started this job in August. When I got home I went straight into the catch all room aka the guest bedroom. It happens every year & that room is a huge mess. Not anymore! It didn't take long either. That's one thing I can check off of my list. Of course Friday night we were at Caliente. It was just Dean & I. Everyone else was out of town.

Saturday morning I got up early & took down Christmas decorations. I never take them down this early but I was just ready for the house to be back to normal. It didn't take nearly as long as I expected so I rewarded myself the rest of the day & did nothing. It rained all day so I read & took a nap.

Saturday night we ate Mexican again. We went to Superior Grill for a going away dinner with our friend Bill. He's leaving LSU & going to work for Miss. St. We went to a going away party for him a few weeks ago. It was just us Saturday night & we had a great visit.
My Rumrita was good but not as good as Caliente. Of course I love the styrofoam cups.
Me & Bill. Freezing & raining = layers & a hat.

Sunday morning I ran. My plan was to go 5 miles but I was feeling good so I went 6.5.My second half is 3 weeks away! As hard as I tried I ended up napping Sunday too.

This morning I ran 4 miles before work. It was cold - 41 degrees but it felt colder. I've been cold since Friday & the only time I'm warm is during/after a run. sigh.

I'm crossing my fingers that the office closes early today. It did the day before Thanksgiving & the day before Christmas Eve. It's not like we have plans because we don't but who wants to be at work when you don't have to be??

Hope everyone has a great NY Eve & Happy New Year!



  1. Happy New Year!! I'm about to leave work and I've had the MOST unproductive day here this year. ;) I have worked but felt like I've just spin wheels on everything and had 40 projects going on. Time to say goodbye to 2013 and ring in 2014!!

  2. Happy New year, and be sure and tell Bill that you have friends in Mississippi, and that one of them (hubby, not me) is a die hard state fan.

  3. Hope you have had a wonderful Happy New Year, Traci! We are just about two hours away from ringing in 2014. Doubt that we will actually still be awake, but we'll see!
