Ooo! I do have to add that Eric's folks (well, most likely, Eric's dad) got me a FANTASTIC Christmas present:
I am most happy with it. :)
New Year's went well, other than the fact that I woke up yesterday morning and my voice wasn't all there. I'd been fighting a cold for the couple of weeks, and it had taken a turn for the ugly. I felt better as the day went on, so Eric and I did our traditional dinner at Black Angus and game all night at Brian's. We were fortunate, this year, in that we were both off from work, so we could go to dinner earlier than usual and avoid the madhouse rush that's usually there every year. Gaming was awesome, as per usual - I finally got to play Battlestar Galactica, and I enjoyed it, even if we lost. Around 1am, though, I headed home to crash, and Eric made it home around 6am - par for the course for us.
This morning, though, I woke up with NO voice. None. The voice, it was gone. Fortunately, the walk-in clinic was open, so I was able to get in and get confirmation - sinus infection. Joy! The pharmacy isn't open until tomorrow, but I'll be starting the meds then. My voice is slowly coming back, mostly because I'm not really using it. So long as I don't sound so bad on Monday, it'll be fine - I can't really take the time off from work right now.
Speaking of work - WE HAVE A NEW EA!! *happydance* She started on Thursday (mostly to get her computer and fill out paperwork, that sort of thing - her first "real" day is Monday), and she's awesome, and yay! With luck, I'll be able to focus on the role I've been in since May for the first time since I've been in that role. I know there's going to be some transitioning, and all that, but I stand a chance of moving forward. It's a great way to start the year.
I also spent some time today putting things in order regarding the finances - basically, just making a spreadsheet of what's owed when, how much, etc. It's something that I've been meaning to do for awhile, and I feel better having everything down on e-paper. It actually looks better than I thought, which is nice. There are things that I'm hoping to do this year, and it's looking like I'm off to a decent start. Y'know, other than the health thing.
Hope everybody's holidays went well, and here's to 2011.
