It’s been entirely too long since I have posted. Winter break was refreshingly good. By far the best break we’ve had. I’m not entirely sure what exactly is different. Caleb’s changed a lot. So have I. We really enjoyed each others company and I didn’t have to (try to) entertain him the whole time. He still struggles a little with boredom, but today he’s so much better at finding solutions instead of going into a panic. This relieves me and allowed me to enjoy him. Nothing was a chore with him like it used to be on breaks.
Also, the last several weeks of classes kicked my butt and I was grateful to spend time away from the computer over MY winter break. It’s been really nice to have time for leisure reading. I realized about a week ago (as i downloaded a bunch of free stuff from iBooks) that i still had 4 books that were 3/4 finished. I finally finished one of them and have vowed not to begin any NEW books until I have them all finished. I don’t know why i do that. I’ll get *almost* done with a book and then never finish it. The nice thing about ebooks is that it’s easy to pick up where you left off. 🙂
I’ve been finding tremendous pleasure in rediscovering all of the stuff i have on iTunes. According to my status bar, i have 4,849 items, 14.8 days, 33.06GB of music. i haven’t even listened to half of it, i’m sure. Some people hoard things. i hoard music (apparently).
I don’t do New Years’ resolutions, so i can’t really say that this is my New Years’ Resolution, but… i have decided that I am going to finish things. I’m good at following through on things for other people. I need to start following through on things for ME. So i’m going to finish all of those books. i’m going to listen to all of the as-yet-unlistened-to music on my iTunes (and purge the crap).
