A Couch Potato Day

December 26th, 2013 at 08:20 pm

Today was the first time I stayed home all day on my Christmas vacation. While I've loved hanging with the fam, I really needed to regroup and relax all by myself. I caught up on laundry -- three loads. I did some housework. And I did fun things, like reading, watching movies, playing computer games. I was intending to go get a haircut, but at some point I decided I was just in for the day. I'll get my haircut tomorrow. My hair is in my eyes and driving me crazy.

I've made a commitment to have the (local) family come over on New Year's Day for brunch. Some have not seen my place yet, so that is the main reason I'm doing it -- also to pay back a little for all the times I've pigged out at the others'. I'm planning on a breakfast casserole, a fruit salad, sausage and bacon, and some kind of roll or pastry. I may also make the family punch, which is one can of pineapple juice, one can of frozen concentrated orange juice, one jar of maraschino cherries, and one liter of 7-Up. Easy and good.

I work on New Year's Eve, and I'm having the grandsons overnight that night, so the timing really isn't good. I'm kind of kicking myself. But I will try to get things done ahead of time as much as possible.

My goals for next year are the usual ones. I want to increase savings and decrease my waistline. I guess a new one is that I want to kick my leg/hip pain by following through on physical therapy. I can't start it, however, until I get my new insurance card.

Not much financial to report. I did have a rather expensive day at Navy Pier - $31, just for food. My other outing with the grandsons -- a visit to Santa at Macy's -- was pretty cheap, but involved a two-and-a-half hour wait. Yikes!

    I made a Biscuit Breakfast Bake for a Christmas Eve breakfast and it was out of this world. I found the recipe through a Facebook post. It's easy to make and can be made the night before and baked in the morning. Let me know if you want to try it!
