Home for the Holidays… Sort Of

20 Dec

Only I would catch a terrible cold the minute I step into my house for winter break. I mean, seriously. I’m finally free from the stress of school, finals and thesis only to be sequestered to my bed for the next few days. I have been chugging water like a mad woman and popping decongestants to get better before I fly to New Hampshire for Christmas! I suppose this snapshot of my nightstand highlights the ridiculous amounts of fluids I’ve been consuming.

If you remember my post about summer lists–having a list of a million trillion things I want to do and completing only a couple of them–well, let me say winter break is no different… only condensed timing. In between my travel-filled break: New Hampshire for Christmas with the BF –> Florida –> New York (for new years!)–> Home for 5 days –> Back to School I made a list of all the things I wanted to do including:

  1. Reread all the Harry Potter Books (I’m in the middle of the 5th)
  2. Make at least two new high-waisted skirts (including one midi skirt made out of silk taffeta)
  3. Knit myself a new winter hat
  4. Catch up with old friends
  5. Try at least four new recipes

So far I only have the HP goal under control… the rest are slipping out of my hands already.
