It has been a long time since I last posted.
I just haven't felt much like blogging or being on line in general.
I've been working extra days/hours and spend 99.5% of my time online, so when I'm home with free time the last thing I want to do is be on the computer.
I'm still not entirely settled in to the house.
I have a few more things to move, hang, find places for etc but for the most part Monty and I are enjoying ourselves and the space.
Monty is especially loving having a yard to spend time in despite the fact its not fenced in and he has to stay on a lead.
My Christmas day was nice, my mom went to the hospital the night before when chest/neck pains but was released Christmas day afternoon with all the tests they ran returning good news leaving them to believe it was stress.
However the fact that she was in the hospital and my parents living 30+ minutes away from the Air Force base, meant it was up to me to cook all the food and get everything ready.
We had a Mexican fiesta of vegetarian tacos with roasted potatoes, veggie grounds and lime/cilantro rice, healthy/homemade roasted corn/cream cheese jalapeno poppers and a few sides and desserts.
I got almost all the food done by the time my dad got back from picking my mom up and we were only a couple hours off what we had scheduled.
I got some super cute clothes, jewelry, a few items for the house, lots of coffee, a healthy dog treat cookbook, an amazing snood, candy, ornaments, a lunch tote and I can't remeber what else.
I think for the most part everyone liked the gifts I gave/made and Monty loved all the little toys and treats I found for him.
I didn't get any pictures because I was so busy and my mom didn't want any taken of her because she came straight from the hospital and didn't get the chance to get cleaned up, so I don't have any cute pictures to share.
My new years plans are up in the air right now but it doesn't matter much to me. I don't have a significant other to share the moment with so it makes no difference to me where I sit the moment the ball drops. Which also means I did not make my goal of getting a date before the new year. Perhaps I'll just reset the goal and hope to have at least one date by next new years, though with my track record that is near impossible too!!
I hope you all had a lovely holiday and have a wonderful new years!!
