The New Year

So this is the new year. And I don't feel any different.
The clanking of crystal. Explosions off in the distance.
So this is the new year. And I have no resolutions.
For self assigned penance. For problems with easy solutions.
-Lyrics from "A New Year" by Death Cab for Cutie
So this is the new year. Well, the third day of the new year. Back to "normal" whatever that means. The holidays are pretty much over. I put all my decorations away. I am back at work. I am ready for a fresh new start.
As I've already stated, 2010 wasn't horrible, but it wasn't necessarily the best year either. But I'm excited to now be in 2011. I'm anxious to see what this year holds. So far it hasn't been much different from the end of 2010 - I have a minor headcold, not nearly as bad as what Nate had however. I do hope it doesn't last long.
I don't usually make resolutions, but I am trying to resolve to not let the little things bug me as much. Because as much as I say I don't - I really do not do well at that. So I'm really going to work on it. Don't sweat the small stuff. Life's too short to worry about small details. Things need to roll off my back more.
Also working on budgeting our money a bit better. We have some things we'd like to save up for and I'm trying to be more proactive about it. We're guilty of going out a lot - especially on weekends - for dinners and such and sometimes it can really add up. We're trying to scale that back to once a week again if we can help it.
Beyond that I am just open to whatever 2011 has to offer me. I hope that it's a good year for everyone. I'm even beginning to accept that looming big birthday I have at the end of this year. It's not sounding as scary for some reason.
Welcome 2011. Let's make it a good one.

How can a Birthday number be bad when A. it is just a number and B. it will be celebrated with a trip? ;)
