I am so damn chipper today. I'm so chipper I'm even annoying myself. I suppose I shouldn't complain but I guess I'm just not used to feeling this way in January on the first working day after a long holiday. The weather sucks, I have a TON of work. I've been sick, I'm totally out of shape and I have kickboxing tonight which is going to kick.my.ass. But I'm walking around with an unnatural spring in my step, brightly wishing everyone a "Happy New Year!" What the hell is wrong with me?! It's January, I'm supposed to be crabby. Or is it during February that I'm crabby and January that I'm just plain tired of winter?
Seriously, though, I'm just happy right now and I should enjoy it before the hormones kick in soon. My husband took great care of me while I was sick last week and we had a really nice, relaxing New Years Eve. We watched Alexander which sucked but it was nice to just be sitting next to each other for an extended period of time without a young child coming in and asking for our help to negotiate a peace treaty or fix the computer (again) or simply trying to sit in between us. Part of it is that, due to some excellent encouragement from my hubby, I came into the office yesterday (which was a holiday for us), cleaned my desk and got a head start on work. So today doesn't really feel like the first day back.
Bottom line - I guess I'm really ready to start a new year. Fresh, hopeful and happy.
Happy New Year everyone!
