Happy 2011!

I hope you all had a lovely time ringing in the new year! We had a lovely evening playing board games with some friends. This is actually quite a deal at our house, because it's been simply forever since we even had the night off together. It was really nice and I had a lot of fun. We haven't had a lot of Pennytime together lately because of the holidays and I am really looking forward to settling back into our routine without tons of me not being at home.

Yes, I am the traveller, the one who has to run a couple of states away while my dearest stays home and works. It's something that has happened for so long I barely remember what we did before Penny had a job that required people to work over the holidays. Oh well, whatever works, right?

I did pretty good with my holiday depression this year. I didn't go in as deeply as normal which was great! I got a really bad cold with fever and cough for Christmas (thanks Santa) and so I am just now feeling normal. I was sure to share with Penny (cause that's what happens when you're married, you share everything) and so FINALLY we are both starting to feel better and not be so irritable and short with one another (got to be my least favorite thing about being sick at the same time).

I mention holiday depression because (well first because it happens to me) I know it happens to a LOT of people. And it happens for different reasons. Mine is tied to family and how our traditions have changed and missing those that we can't be with anymore.
That is just me, I am not trying to drag anyone else into my personal thing here, but sometimes people just need to know that it happens to someone else.

I don't have a lot of resolutions this year, mainly to be healthy and I have some crafty ones, but they don't really apply here LOL!

Acceptance is something I really learned about int 2010. I hope that in 2011 that I can not only learn how to show more acceptance to those I know, but to those I don't know. I would like to think that as I meet new people in the world that they will know that I mean what I say and I treat others as I wish to be treated no matter how they present.

Happy New Year.
