An Uninspiring Start To The New Year

The past few days have been a bit odd feeling.  Usually I like the feel of New Year's Eve and New Year's Day but this year I was a little bit grumpy for no real reason.

The Wife and one of her nieces left on Wednesday to roadtrip to Arizona to cheer on Notre Dame at the Fiesta Bowl.  This left me and Iago to our own devices.

On New Year's Eve I played a little, read a little, and caught up on the latest season of "The Walking Dead".  I considered going to see the lights and fireworks downtown but just wasn't in the mood.  I ended the day as I usually do by watching the clock next to the bed change over and turning out the light.  The difference was I didn't have the Wife to kiss and wish Happy New Year.

On New Year's Day I took down some of the Christmas decoration and lit the candle for Notre Dame.  It didn't work but it sounds like the Wife and niece still had a fun time at the Fiesta Bowl.  I started watching a new show on Amazon Prime ("The Man in the High Castle").  It's an interesting story.

Today I was going to ride my bike in an attempt to kick start my exercise routine that I've been neglecting.  I didn't.  Tomorrow I will ... I promise.  Instead I finished taking down the outside lights (some were frozen to the gutter) and watched several more episodes of the Man in the High Castle.

So the past three days have been a bit aimless and uninspiring.  That will have to change soon.
