Hello 2021

20202021. We finally made it through 2020. What a weird year it's been. Before starting to write this post I looked back at my first post of 2020 and of course back then I had no idea what the year would bring. It's weird thinking about it that way. I mean of course you don't know what lies ahead. Year end and year beginnings are always a bit nostalgic for me. Looking back at a year and the various months, seasons and what happened and changed. And then there is the new year, a new clean slate and ready to start over and create a new story. Well, let's see what 2021 brings and what kind of year it will be. Let's hope it's a good one or at least better than 2020. 

Last week was another short work week for me. Monday to Wednesday were regular days and then Thursday was 1/2 a day for New Year's Eve and then off Friday to Sunday. We went for an early dinner at Chuck's for delicious steak and lobster tails. So good! Then hung out at Two Steps for a bit before coming home and watching TV. Tuned into Anderson Cooper's New Year's Eve coverage on CNN this year which was way more entertaining than Ryan Seacrest so we'll need to do that again next year.

Friday we slept in and then went for lunch at Flipside in Fairfield. Saturday we headed to Rizzuto's in Westport and yesterday just had lunch locally at Rosy's since the weather forecast was a bit iffy with ice and snow. Only ended up with about an inch and a half of snow so not too bad. Binged a bunch of the second season of the Mandalorian yesterday and now just have 2 episodes to go. We have been switching between the various streaming services (HBO Max, Disney+, Apple, etc) and signing up for a month at time, watching what we want to watch and then cancelling again. The only thing we regularly subscribe to is Netflix and Amazon Prime as we do use those very frequently. 

Well, that's about all there's for now. A normal regular work week this week. Kind of weird to be back to a normal five day week with no days off in the foreseeable future. Well maybe eventually travel will be a thing again, hopefully sooner rather than later. Our 20 year wedding anniversary is in February this year. Originally we had talked about a far flung trip, something like Bora Bora or Tahiti or maybe the Maldives or Mauritius. But yeah, not really seeing that happening. We will just have to postpone it and go when we actually can go.
