I’m feeling better after battling the flu and then a superinfection on top of it. I was down from December 28th until this past Friday, the 5th, when I went back to work but still felt pretty grim. I didn’t really start functioning until yesterday, and I’d say I’m still about 80%. Just need to catch up on sleep and recharge my batteries.

Sixteen going on seventeen! 2016 is over, a new year is ahead. Who knows what’s in front of us? I like to start each year hopeful and positive, and 2017 is no different. That’s all of my outfit photos above. The year started with intense knee pain right before a January blizzard, evolved to knee surgery in April, crutches and a cane through the end of May (and a trip to the UK). Summer fun, fall boots, costumes, disappointments, Christmas. It was a year.

I have a word for 2016, and it’s “more.”

“Blah blah blah, new year, blah blah, planning.” This is what I’ve been thinking the past two days about resolutions, and it’s so unlike me. As a compulsive list-maker, New Year’s Resolutions are my SuperBowl. But I’ve been in a funk so far in 2015. All 2 days of it (I was in a great mood NYE). I’ve had trouble focusing in on what I’m excited about for the new year, and everything productive I can think of to get me out of it is a bummer (like taking down the Christmas tree).

It’s just a little new year blues. So many possibilities for a new year, and so many friends on social media already announcing big exciting things for the year. I have decision paralysis. What do¬†I want to do this year? I can’t even decide what to make for dinner in the face of A Brand New Year. But¬†finally, now in the evening of the 2nd day of 2015, I’m snapping out of it. I’m over myself, and ready to make The List.
