Happy 2020! Now get to work.

Today is the last day of my Christmas vacation. I have to go back to work tomorrow and, like just about everyone else who has enjoyed a nice, relaxing 2 week vacation, I am not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow. I have slept so much and enjoyed every minute of that. And tomorrow, I have to get up at 6:00 am and that is just too stinking early.

Also, I have not accomplished everything that I had actually hoped to accomplish during this time. There were projects that I was going to finish up and I never even touched them. I think we’ll get working on one of those later this afternoon, but we are not going to finish it in a day. Some of these projects have been sitting for more than 2 years and I’d really love to stop having to think about their unfinished state. It’s somehow mentally exhausting to think about something that I’m not even working on finishing. How does that make any sense at all?!

But I’m optimistic about this year. I think 2020 is going to be a year of positive changes for me. I’m turning 40 in February and Justin is going to be graduating from his grad program this summer. I’m feeling pretty good about it. There’s also going to be a lot of challenges and don’t even get me started right now on world news. But I’m hopeful. I think it’s going to be a good year.

  1. I’m so happy you changed the color to a white background. I’m not sure if it’s possible, but I think the black one was making me feel nauseous. Is that possible? 🙂 It’s the little things that make me happy. Ha!

    Also, I TOTALLY get how exhausting it is to to have something lingering over you unfinished. It’s frustrating how exhausting doing nothing can be!

    1. I played around with a bunch of different colors and decided I liked this light blue-gray the best. 😉

      I don’t know about the nausea-inducing capabilities of it. Dark backgrounds are supposed to be less eye strain. But it just felt really oppressive and that’s not the feel I was going for!

      We did look at one of the projects on the list today and decided we can’t do it without a table saw. And since we don’t currently own one, we’ll need to buy one. But we’ll have to save up the funds first. So… It’ll happen this year, but not right away.
