Had a minor knitting setback on my way home last night; one of my bamboo DPNs splintered in my hand. I only had a set of 4 with me, but at home I have many DPNs so today I’m back on track, and no stitches were sacrificed during the mishap.
And I’m getting other things in order. While I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, I do like to view the upcoming year as a chance to improve upon things in my life. I have already re-worked my student loan payment plan to pay it off in three years (or less) instead of the 8 that it is set up for (it has a nice, low interest rate of 2%, so it’s not a huge incentive to pay it off other than not carrying the debt). I’ve also accelerated our house payments to get that bugger paid for ahead of schedule.
I was doing pretty well in 2016 with cleaning up my eating habits, but my willpower fell victim to the holidays and I’m feeling the results. There’s nothing like a cookie binge to make you realize just how crappy all that sugar and wheat makes you feel! But I’m back on track today, with simple meats, eggs, cheese, and veggies. I can do this. I got a couple of new cookbooks for Christmas that have simple and clean recipes that I look forward to trying.
Happy New Year!
