i have exactly 1.5 days left of my vacation. i have been off of work for at least 15 days in december- gavin and i have done a lot of fun things from writing a letter to santa, making cookies, making gingerbread houses, playing in the snow, relaxing, and playing. can't believe that we will be back to the grind on monday- but looking forward to a fresh start. i always feel like a new year means a fresh start to life again. time to reorganize goals and projects... we accomplished a lot in 2010 but can't wait to see what we can check off the list in 2011. happy new year!
