Hope your holidays were happy and magical.
I've been a bit out of it, as I left DC more than a week ago for Iowa and was then in NH for Christmas. During that time, I didn't look at blogs at all.
Steve graduated with his Master's from Iowa State last Friday (December 18) and then I flew to NH that next Monday, where he then met me on Christmas Eve. We drove back to DC Saturday, only to discover that the nearly two feet of snow that arrived last week is nearly gone. Booo. My apartment is a complete disaster and I am already feeling more than overwhelmed by everything that comes with the new year and all that jazz. I'm not sure why, but I lacked holiday spirit this week and have been feeling a bit out of sorts lately, to go along with that.
I think I need a vacation, an actual vacation. While I love going home and visiting family and friends, I don't consider that vacation (unlike Steve), because there is always so much to do and people to see in a short time, and I feel like I always disappoint some people who I don't get to see. It is moments like this when I wish I could move home, though I know that isn't the answer.
(more positive post later in the week, I promise)
