And another Christmas done and in the books. Just a few days until 2023 now. It is weird thinking about 2023. In my mind the whole Y2K Year 2000 thing is really not that long ago and somehow we are almost 23 years removed from this now. Where has the time gone? I know, I know. It's my go to line 'where does the time go?' and it does always feel like it's flying from one week to the next. But then at times like New Year's it becomes even more apparent. It really is crazy and makes me realize I am getting old. Haha.
But anyway, is what it is right? I am on day four of a four day weekend which has been nice. I had Dec 23rd and Dec 26th off due to the 24th and 25th falling on the weekend this year. No complaints of course. Friday (23rd) I did a few things around the apartment, had a curry sweet potato turkey soup for lunch and in the evening was invited over to my friend Jana's house. She made some yummy food and we had a bunch of prosecco and watched various movies. A fun night.
Saturday, Christmas Eve, we went to Westport to have lunch at Rizzuto's. Actually before that we went to Stew Leonard's and bought a bunch of yummy food (shrimp cocktail, cheeses, crackers, pigs in a blanket and more) After lunch we stopped at Rosy's for another drink before heading home and watched "Glass Onion", the second Knives Out movie on Netflix. I wasn't really sure what to think of it at first but did end up liking it.
Sunday, Christmas Day, we slept in a bit and then went to the movies at 11.15 to see "Babylon". It was over three hours along but we didn't have anywhere else to be so it was a fun way to spend the afternoon. I did like the movie, didn't love it but it was a fun watch. Afterwards we came home and hung out at home for the rest of the day. Had our Christmas feast and binged the second season of Ted Lasso on Apple+. Was a fun way to spend the day.
Mike and I decided not to really do gifts this year. I bought a Kindle Paperwhite for myself during the Black Friday sales and we also booked the Barcelona/Lisbon trip for February during Black Friday sales as well. And we are also looking to get Broadway tickets for the new year. Just waiting to figure out Mike's schedule as it may change after the new year. So instead of buying random stuff we didn't really need we decided to just leave it for this year.
Today I am just vegging out and will probably curl up on the couch with some tea and a book for the afternoon.
No big plans for New Year's. I am working Tues, Wed, Thur and half a day on Friday this week. New Year's Eve falls on a Saturday so we will likely have lunch at Rizzuto's in Westport again and will probably have dinner at Chuck's and then head home and watch some New Year's stuff at home.
