happy new year folks!!
since it's a new year, i'm not using "word of the day" anymore for my post titles. instead i think i'll try song titles that express how i'm feeling at the time. so today, i've got "Feeling Good" by Michael Buble in my head. (it's been sung by others, but that's the version i'm hearing in my head right now.) today started the new year for us. we spent the 1st day of 2012 being lazy and doing nothing. the most productive thing we did was take down the christmas tree, but that didn't really take very long at all. today however, i started it by taking a walk with chauncy in my proper attempt to finally get healthy. screw trying to get skinny and looking good in skinny jeans, i just wanna get healthy. being over 30 seems to have done a number on my body more than i care to admit. and it's only goin downhill from here. =P then it's off to work i went!
i won't waste ur time with reflections on the past year. in a nutshell, 2011 was a pretty great year professionally and threw a curve ball at the end when we decided to move. turning 31 sucked. and my old BFF from elementary school has finally found her way back into my life after about 16yrs so that's always a plus! but then my other BFF just moved back down to GA so that was a big downer. ended the year on a high note as we moved to our new place and resumed being grown ups. =) i also won't waste time with resolutions. call me lazy, call me weird, i just don't wanna set out unrealistic goals because if i've learned anything these past few years, it's that anything
can happen in a year.
so, to start the year off, i wanted to share my new Art Table! well, "new" in the sense that it's now in our new home and arranged somewhat differently. but really it's the same table. =P
in case u peeped it, that is a custom Lali doll that the hubby had commissioned as a Christmas gift for me. i HEART
her so much! it's so friggin adorable and fantastically well made! i keep forgetting to ask him who made it cuz i know he found the lady on deviantart. once i remember, i'll be sure to post her info for others to see.
at any rate, i put her up there cuz that's her "sniping position." =P (Lali is my original character for ID Comics Studio's Brotherhood of Fighters
our walls are sadly still bare in our new lab, but hopefully we'll remedy that this weekend. we're certainly not short on cool things to put up, we just have very little time.
hope everyone had a merry christmas and a great start to the new year. if 2012 is
going to be the year of armageddon, then bring it on! i've been blessed to be with the love of my life, doing what i love for a living (with FANS to boot!), great family that loves me whether they say it or not, and i have the unconditional love of 2 doggies. got a lotta love in my life, what more could i ask for! =)
