While I really don’t want to go into the context behind which prompted this, this quote sums up today quite well:
(A detailed explanation behind that theory – http://whatever.scalzi.com/2010/06/16/the-failure-state-of-clever/)
Steph is away on a business trip right now. Luckily, this is her only one of the year that we know of, unlike the past few years where I felt more like a hotel butler each time she came home.
“Hello, Mrs. Hughes. We have your room made up for you and some chocolate in the cupboard. Also, here is a kitten for petting.”
In the meantime, she left me at home to fend for myself. I’m pretty good at this except right now I’ve developed a head cold that is leaving me weak and lethargic. And the cats are out of food so they began circling me like sharks at breakfast this morning. It was a rather worrisome feeling.
(The cats have now been fed – vet didn’t open until seven and I rushed out right away.)
So it’s a new year, huh?
2014 was … a year. There was a lot of good in it – a Disney Marathon, going paint balling with new friends, meeting old friends at Paradise Icon, and Hawaii, of course. There was some low moments but I’m going to try not to dwell on that.
2015 has started off good. Being a kid, I always wanted to stay up to see the midnight and the new year come rolling around. Last night, I was in bed by 10:30 and slept almost nine hours. The day was spent around the house, going for a short run, doing some writing, watching a movie with Steph, and in short, having a good time. So in that respect, the year has started out all right.
Here’s hoping it keeps going that way.
