So it's been almost a month since I've posted on here. I guess that there hasn't been too much exciting stuff happening here. Or something. Anyway, this is what we've been up to:
We drove down to AR to visit the family (mine) the weekend before Christmas. Good times were had, lots of crazy cat lady stuff was given to me, good food was eaten--it was a pretty typical Christmas. :)
We had to get up insanely early to drive back to DFW for church on the 21st. We made it just in time for the extra practice we squeezed in before Sacrament meeting. Anyway, right after church I went to work, then got off from there and we went to Rex's family's Christmas party. That was tons of fun with good food and a White Elephant gift exchange.
After getting some much-needed sleep we spent Christmas morning at our apartment before Rex went to work. We exchanged presents: I gave him all 4 seasons of House and tickets to a Mavs game (this Saturday!!!) and he gave me a beautiful necklace and a new leather jacket. :) Then he went to work and I went to his sister's house for Christmas dinner there.
It was around this time that I came down with a pretty nasty cold. It's been around 3 weeks and it's still dragging its feet about going away. Blech. At least I haven't lost my voice this go-around. That's happy, anyway. :)
I'm reading the Harry Potter books again. It's amazing that I can catch things that I've never caught before when I re-read something. I'm on the 6th book and I can't wait to read the 7th book again!
Ummm....I went to my work New Year's Eve party. That was pretty fun and interesting....there were several people who were partaking (including my boss at the library), but a lot more who were not. We chose to leave right after midnight so we wouldn't encounter crazy drunk people on the road.
I celebrated New Year's Day by going to see Twilight for the 3rd time. I went with 3 of my friends from the library and then we came over to my apartment afterwards and just hung out and watched Mamma Mia! and sat around having girl time. That is definitely a tradition worth keeping around! I'm excited to be making friends at work and at church. It makes the evenings when Rex is at work much more enjoyable when I'm spending time with friends instead of all alone with the cats. :)
Since then, it's just been work and church and trying to get over this silly cold. So yeah.....nothing too exciting. Just life as usual.
