Confession: I kinda, maybe, don't love January. A lot!
Yep, putting that right out there. I really gave it a try this year. I told myself January gets a bad rap I'll think of some warm cozy thing I love about January each day and I'll do it. I was just sure that would help.
Warm cozy things I love:
Soup. Unfortunately, the Boys are not big fans. They think soup should accompany steak, and baked potatoes, and homemade rolls, salad, and seven layer dessert...grrr!
Warm jammies. What could go wrong with warm jammies? Try having to go to work in the cold just at the time for putting on warm jammies. Ahh...Graveyards!
Reading. I was able to get through the last Fablehaven book. Sadly, I felt guilty about all the things I needed to get done. Sigh.
Blankets. My awesome Mom made three denim quilt tops for me to give to #8, #3 and #4. We have plans to find some flannel and get them finished. But, the term is ending and school work needs finished and Christmas needs taking down and organized and put away. Boo
Cuddling. Well...that's been fabulous, except for those pesky jobs we both have.
Friends. We have spent some catch-up time with friends on a couple occasions this month. Love that!
Media. January is the perfect month to get really into some TV or blogging. So far the TV broke and the computer has a virus, the router gave up the ghost. Always, everything breaks in January. Why??
Socks. Warm, fuzzy, socks! #3 is a sock fiend. He will raid my sock drawer multiple times a day. Either he's color blind or really secure in his teenboyhood, pink and lime green socks are not a deterrent. Nor is his size 11 feet in my size 9 socks.
Hot chocolate. Swore off sugar...dang!
Peanut butter cookies. Swore off sugar...dang!
Cleaning and organizing. Wait, that's not warm and cuddly and I don't enjoy it. Stupid plastic bins and organizers in all the stores.
Writing. Still don't have a stinkin' program on my laptop. To cold to go out and get it done.
Snow. I really enjoy walking in falling snow all bundled up toasty warm. The dirty frozen mess and poor air quality are making that impossible this month.
Yeah! Yeah! I'm whining and feeling sorry for myself.
Blame it on January, I am!
