Christmas is over and now we get to gear up for the New Year -- even though I'm more into constant goal setting versus once-a-year resolutions, I feel so hopeful looking at the beginning of 2015 where it is sitting on the horizon.
It's been a tough year. But we're shaking it off, right?
This week, both comments of the week come from the same article. People had some very strong feelings. The article in question is "IT HAPPENED TO ME: My Boyfriend and I Live With His Parents" and I understand why it got so many people commenting and upvoting.
Let's start with this gem from Bess, the landlord's daughter:
That's a great point about the sacrifices that parents might make to host their son and his girlfriend, particularly since a lot of parents really anticipate having their privacy and lives back after raising their kids.
Our next comment is from Jeanneee, who definitely went all "mom" in a great way:
It's all so true, Jeanneee.
Here's my "in case you missed it" article pick: "Rub-a-Dub-Dub, Drink Booze in the Tub With This Ultimate Last-Minute Gift Idea" -- I am ordering one of those in order to elevate my bathtub drinking game.
So, what do you have going on for New Year's Eve this upcoming week? We're planning to go to a small party at a friend's house, low-key and enjoyable. There are some great drink specials going on downtown but I don't think this is the year for that kind of celebration.
Thank you for spending the weekend here with me. It's my favorite part of the week. Well, other than putting Freya in this Christmas dress. That was pretty great, too.
