Phew! I’m finally getting settled in! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks and I’ve completely neglected my little blog.
The week or so before Christmas was hell for me. I was really stressed out and everyday was a struggle to accomplish all I wanted to while remaining somewhat sane. There was just too much on my plate and I sorely needed my trip home.
My super quick visit home for Christmas was amazing. I got everything I needed. I got to see some of my good buds – The All-American, TAG, JAG and just missed out on seeing PiC. I also spent lots of time with my family, which was easily the best part of the trip. Christmas Eve was spent at one of my Grandma’s houses and Christmas morning was spent with the immediate fam followed by an afternoon party with the uncles, aunts, cousins, etc.
Trip back to SC – not so awesome. My stress returned as my flight was late getting into DC and I missed my flight to Charleston. The airline put me up in a nice hotel and gave me a food voucher, so not all was lost. However, I knew I was not going to make it back in time for work. I ended up getting in around 230 the next day and was into work by 4ish. Ugh.
My family soon arrived down here to help with the moving process. I don’t know how I would have done it without them. I owe my parents so much. The move went extremely well and I was able to spend some quality time with the family. As usual, their visit was way too short, but it was better than nothing.
So, here I am – in my new apartment. This is the first time I’ve ever lived alone. I have always had some form of roommate. I don’t mind it at all, but I do know there will be some lonely nights. Luckily, I’ll have my puppy and friends to keep me company.
-The Ex and I are splitting the dog for the time being. She gets her on the weekends. It”s definitely an annoying situation, but the dog was a joint venture. I will eventually win this battle though :p
-The Ex and I were talking on the phone today about extra stuff we have in the move that we could give each other, when all of a sudden she gets really sad and starts to cry. She says she misses me, which I was happy to hear because I have kinda felt like she’s had no problem with the whole breakup. It was kind of a relief to see it hasn’t been easy on her either. I know that sounds bad, but I think you all know what I mean. Anyway, she wants to hang out on Sunday when she brings the dog back to me. I said that was fine. So much for avoiding her..
-I did not make any kind of New Year’s resolution or anything, but I am going to do my best to have an incredible year. I know that is vague and lame, but that’s what my goal is. I am going to have an incredibly selfish year and just do things that make me happy. Now that I am single and my only responsibility is my puppy, I should be able to do just about anything I want and I fully intend on it…
