Have you ever heard the superstition that how you spend your New Year's Day is how you'll spend the rest of that year?
Starting at midnight, I rang in 2013 with my mom and little sister.
We played Scrabble and played cards and took lots of silly animal pictures.
I slept in and went for my first run of the year. It wasn't super fast, it wasn't super far, but I ran.
I tried a new recipe and ate dinner with (sadly not all of) my family. I sat with them in the living room and read Harry Potter, my mom hemmed my pants and we all watched Big Bang Theory.
It's been a quiet day and a quiet evening at home.
If the rest of my year turns out to be peaceful and happy like today, I think it would be all right. A good run, good food, good company... yes please.
Of course my only complaint is that not everyone I love played a part in my day. My older sister is back in Kansas and Pat is a bajillion miles away still -- but we'll be fixing that problem on Saturday.
I've been a bit quiet on the blog -- sorry about that, friends. Enjoying my vacation from work and school. I'll try to get back into the swing of things soon.
Hoping you all had a wonderful New Year's Day and wishing you all a fabulous 2013.
