Oh my gosh, December felt like a whirlwind. I’ve been to Mexico (blog post to come later), did some cooking/baking, and then went to San Francisco for NYE.  I was so excited Sunday morning when I woke up in my own bed to a quiet house and enjoyed my cup of coffee (okay, pot of coffee) in the glow of my mini Christmas tree. I’m not really ready to get rid of my tree. I like the soft lighting in my house; it’s pretty. Is there some rule about how long you can keep it up? I hope not. I’m not talking about leaving it up until June, but maybe February-ish. I always feel like the Holidays come to such an abrupt end. I mean they cram the holiday spirit down our throats before Halloween now. I remember the days when you didn’t hear a Christmas song until the day after Thanksgiving. Those were the days… Here is my cute tree. My friend called it a pygmy.

I also have some news: I decided to quit my job a while ago, but today I made it official and gave my notice! I don’t have a plan, but I do have a mortgage. Crazy, I know. I’ve been feeling as though I need something new in my life and change was in the wind. I operate very well when I am scared to death, so this may work out perfectly!

I am preparing for the GMAT, soon to be unemployed, and wondering what I am supposed to do next. I am anxious, terrified but most of all excited! I’m thankful for the knowledge I’ve gained in my current position and the friends I’ve met along the way. Here’s to new beginnings!

I’ve just leapt off the cliff. Please feel free to share you thoughts… or just tell me I’m a nutter.

hori hori dig dig!
