I have no plans for tonight. Well, I might go to bed early. Do those count as plans? I also have a horrendous cold. At least I hope it's only a cold. My brother has bronchitis and my sister has a sinus infection from hell. And I'm going to my grandparent's next week, and I'm always afraid I'm going to make them sick and then they will die. I worry too much. But the point is, everyone is out of town, Wes is home, I'm home, and I feel like crap. Yet, I think next year will be one of my happiest ever. If I ever find a dress I can stand.
I went dress shopping last week. I hate shopping. I hate shopping. I hate shopping. Say it with me, "I HATE SHOPPING!!!" I hate trying on clothes. My sister says it's because I have a body that looks good in anything, and thus, everything looks at least ok on me, if not better. We had a hard time finding any dresses the color I want. The one that we found that I loved was a prom dress, and therefore the material was really crappy. I had to try on a bunch of different colors at a very well known bridal chain that I won't mention by name because the service was really, really bad. And my mom and sister decided I should wear purple instead of green. Thus, I will put off shopping for a couple of months. Meanwhile, I bought a bridal magazine today for ideas. Wes wants to know why we're waiting until October. I guess it's because I want an outdoor fall wedding. I guess we could move it up to September. We'll see.
I bought a humidifier today. I know that's not exciting, but it's a very cute humidifier: it looks like a frog. Just thought I should share.
This year, Wes and I are going to do resolutions together. I also do year goals, 5 year goals and 10 year goals every year, so we're going to do those together too. I'll let you know if there are any exciting ones. This is going to be a very hectic year for me. I have pre-lims and dissertation proposal defense in the spring. I'm going to Russia for a month this summer. I'm moving to Virginia and getting married in the fall. And all my grant applications are due between August and December. I think that's about it.
I tried to put up some new links. If they don't work, let me know.
I hope everyone has a great new year's celebration and remember to call a cab!!!
