Like most of America, we ran in 2021 from the comfort of our own home – and like most people I know, that is how we’ve done it for years. It’s just such a hassle nowadays, to like put on pants and get in the car. Plus – when food can just come to you, like what is the point anymore?
On a serious note, we did have a really nice time. We ordered pizza, played with a karaoke microphone and watched Soul. Which was such an amazing movie – seriously. So good. We blew up a 2021 balloon, wore 2021 hats (even LuLu got in on the fun) all in an effort to bid 2020 adieu.
After we got Sheff in bed – we headed to the basement to watch Tomorrowland. We saw a few of our favorites – Da Tweekaz and David Guetta, but we were pumped for the Snoop Dogg set! It was so fun to watch – a serious blast from the past. We made it to midnight – and then like ten minutes past that before heading to bed.
Despite being up so late, I got up early. I was craving some of that mom alone time – but Sheff found me, and we sat on the couch and snuggled at watched Safety. It was such a good-feeling movie, and the weather was cloudy and crappy, and it felt right to start the new year that way. We snacked and watched football for the rest of day – and then had the pork and black eyed peas for luck.
I have no intention of really setting any resolutions or coming up with any words for 2021. B and I promised to starting making one recipe a week out of one of our many cookbooks – and I made a promise to myself to write more – either here on this blog or through journaling. I’m not doing any crazy diets or saying I’m going to stop drinking soda – but hopefully I’ll read a few more books in 2021 than I did in 2020. That’s really it – I’m making no more goals other than to just survive the best way I can.
I hope y’all have had a great start to 2021 – let’s give each other all a little grace again this year, yeah?
