Happy New Year

I’m still meeting people I haven’t seen since last year and having to say Happy New Year to them. It feels nice actually, kind of like extending the festivities if you will.

One of the first things people ask is whether I had a good break over Christmas and New Year’s and if I have any resolutions for 2010.

Yes, I had a lovely long break. I had time off between Christmas and New Year’s and those ten days for the price of three felt great. We went to my parents’ house for Christmas dinner and my sister-in-law’s for Boxing Day. We avoided the sales though, sales are for suckers.

The period after Christmas was rampacked with events as two of our friends got married. Not to each other. Between the dholki nights, mandhis (yes, MANdhi) and wedding receptions we were exhausted by the time we had to get back to work.

So New Year’s resolutions? I’m hoping 2010 is going to be a great year for us. As I enter my 30s (yikes, that sounds awfully grown up) one of my priorities is my health. I’ve already started eating right and exercising more frequently and it feels great. Of course I will have some cake come January 28th 🙂
