Happy New Year and Other Random Stuff

I am not sure if I am happy or sad that the holiday season is over.  I am looking forward to my house getting back to normal.  Christmas decor always makes it seem more cramped.  It is always interesting to me that I get sooo excited to put the decorations up right after Thanksgiving and then I am sooo ready to take them down once New Year's has come and gone.  I guess my OCD starts kicking in and I just want all of the clutter to go away.

We had a nice Christmas but Brandon was sick with a cold which he then passed on to myself and Nick for New Year's.  (That's my baby, he's a giver.)  Our New Year's was a very quiet one.  We stayed home and just relaxed.  It was much needed.

Brandon went to the doctor on Monday for his well check-up.  While there we learned he has a double ear infection.  Not a bad one but this is the 3rd time so he is now on a different antibiotic that will hopefully keep it at bay.   I am thinking Brandon got my small ear canals since I also had continuous ear infections as a baby.  I am hoping that this will be the last for a while because I really do not want him to have to get tubes in his ears.

Speaking of the antibiotic he is on.  This is the first that he refuses to take.  It takes both Nick and I to hold him down and get it in his mouth.  He has figured out how to spit it back at you so doing this twice a day really stinks.  It is a 10 day antibiotic and we are only on day 3 (oh, joy).

I'm not one to normally make New Year's Resolutions because I never keep them so my resolution this year is to NOT make a resolution.  HAHA  Maybe that means whatever I decide to do I will actually complete this year.  Here's hoping.

Happy New Year Everyone!

  1. Girl, I know exactly what you mean about the decorations...we took ours down before New Year's because I was so anxious to get my house back to normal...but I was chomping at the bit to get them out on the Friday after Thanksgiving! I hope you all feel better quickly and the ear infections go away & stay there!

    1. I just took them down over the weekend. We were all sick over Christmas and New Year's so just waited until we all felt better.
