So I know December had just as many days as it has had in previous years, but I feel like it didn't. New Year's Eve snuck up on me. Bill told me that we were invited over to a friend's house to hang out. I thought that sounded fun and powdered through some work so I wouldn't fall behind by taking the evening off. It wasn't until I was filling out the payment paperwork and putting the date on the top that I realized that we had been invited over to celebrate the new year rolling in. Bill hadn't realized it either, so that made me feel better. It was probably a shock to anyone who has been around for a while (or read the old posts) that I didn't have my usual end of the year dash to get more items finished. That's because I didn't see it coming.
Last year was kind of pitiful on how few finished items I finished and donated. I know, a few items is better than no items, but I like to get more than three done in a whole year. Good news is that I have a bunch of mostly finished items laying around that will be quick to finish, so this year is already looking up. I even have some pink hats from other people to show off!
I also got picked to possibly serve jury duty and went in to be screened yesterday. I think it is funny that the first time I get called in it was for a week long trial for first degree murder. I'm glad, for a few reasons, to not get chosen for that jury. It was just a little too intense for me. Now I'm guaranteed to not get summoned again for three years. Considering I have been eligible for over a decade and have never been called is funny. Bill is a year older than me and has also never been called. I am really curious how the trail ends though.
It is really cold in here and I need to go make some lunch before I run off to work! I'm glad the end is in sight from all the madness!
