I ended up working New Years Eve on Thursday, which was okay! It was really slow and I couldn't wait to go home to our party! Every New Years Eve since we moved into this house almost 17 years ago, my parents have thrown a shindig! That's well over half my life; it has become a tradition. All of my family, and family friends come and we all have a good time and celebrate! Same food as Christmas is served, a long with some other additional goodies. I wish I could have taken some pictures of the party, but I could not find any of my battery chargers! I have a lot for a reason; always lose them. Anyway, the night was spent drinking, and dancing! It was so much fun. I love my family very much, they are all so lively and fun. I just wished I could have gotten a new years kiss from my amazing boyfriend! But that was okay seeing as though he came home the very next day!
Christian came back on Friday, New Years Day. I was so excited to see him! I could not wait for him to call me to go pick him up at Union Station in downtown. I spent the day cleaning my room, and getting ready before he got in from Florida. Once he called me, I hopped right into my car and headed to downtown. I was so happy to see him! It felt amazing to hug him, cheesy I know, but I can't help it. After I picked him up, we went to his place to drop off his luggage and for him to relax for a bit. I love cuddling with him, we could have done that the whole time but we were both hungry so we decided to get sushi. I enjoy our little sushi dates so much; we might have over done it that night! We were both starving so we ate quite a bit,haha. After we went to Target to buy me some slippers seeing as though I don't have any at his place for when I stay over. I got these super cute sock monkey slippers, oh my gosh. Christian said that if they had them in his size he would have totally bought a pair as well, and we would be nerding out together. I'm on a mission to find some in his size. We then headed off to Blockbuster to rent a movie. We ended up watching Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, it was good! Neither of us got a chance to watch it when it came out in theater earlier last year. Obviously no movie is better than the book, but I think the Harry Potter movies do a good job of depicting the book.
Saturday I worked 4-cl. I've been feeling like this for a couple of months now, but I cannot stand my job anymore. It is so unorganized and unprofessional. I feel physically and emotionally exhausted after I work, and I never feel excited to go to work. I really don't feel any great connections with my co-workers. I just go about my day at work and do what I have to do. I think it's about time I look for another job, but it's so hard now. I don't even know where to begin! :[
Enough about work. Today was a good day on the other hand! I got up, had some cereal for breakfast and then I got a text from Christian asking me if I wanted to go on on a movie date. I obviously said yes. So I got ready and he came around 1pm. The movie didn't start until 2:30 so we grabbed some lunch at Peach Cafe! We both got the Grilled Chicken Club, super good! We watched Avatar; I really enjoyed it! I think Christian thought I wouldn't like it, but I did. I do enjoy Sci-Fi flicks! He seems to think I don't like them,haha. After that he dropped me off since he had plans with his friend, and I had dinner plans with my parents. Guess where we went? Mako sushi! As always. So I had an amazing dinner, and an overall amazing day with Christian and later with my parents.
That's it for now, I want to get some stuff done before bed! Tomorrow is back to the gym! I will make an update on my New Years Goals! For now I will leave you with an adorable, and I swear not staged, picture of my beagles Dexter and Emma:
