Yeah, I haven't done this in a while. With all of the pretty extras of DM being down lately, I just assumed that blogs were down too. So, hence the no updates in goodness knows how long.
A lot has happened between my last entry and now, good things and bad- but mostly good. Barbarian and I celebrated three years of marriage back in October, November flew by and I overate, and now it's December.
I love the cold. I find it bracing- and plus it's low humidity, so that means no frizzy hair for me. I like to snuggle up in the bed with extra blankets, Barbarian and the cat, especially on weekends. This is the time of year for homemade hot chocolate and fires in the fireplace. Speaking of fireplaces, I've come to realize that I love the interior stone. I've been staring at my parent's fireplace for the last half hour, watching the flames dance around illuminating the 75 year old soot covered stone, and I've decided that it is absolutely gorgeous. In fact, I think that soot might be my new favorite color.
Barbarian is laid out in front of the fireplace right now, sound asleep- it's so adorable. He finally got a job about three weeks ago, and he's been working mandatory 50 hour weeks- sometimes he works a little over. But, he really seems to enjoy his job and I'm thankful that he now has it. It's kinda nice to know that you are going to be able to pay your bills, and we were also able to get presents for our family and close friends this holiday season.
I love this time of year. I love that we're able to spend time with our families- especially those who live far off. I love shopping during this time, too. I'm not crazy, well, not that crazy. The deals are good, so can you blame me? Plus, my birthday is in December, and that's always fun.
So, there you go. A nice long-ish (emphasis on the ish), rambling blog thingy to let you, whoever you are, know that I'm still alive.
