Things Aren't Always What They Seem...

First of all, Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!  Ours was fine, but I have to say I'm glad it's over.  The kids are back in school and I can rest, lol!

Sooooooo...if you read my last post (from 3 weeks ago, sorry!) you may remember I mentioned some bug bites in a highly inconvenient area of my anatomy.  Well, they weren't bug bites.  Turned out to be poison oak.
We'd gone hiking in a beautiful park in Marin.  It overlooked the city, and we had a great time.
There were no bathrooms.  So I had to hike into a copse, and drop trou.


In exactly the wrong spots, obviously.

I went to my GP, who tried his hardest not to laugh and gave me some cream to rub on  Then he had me take blood test to rule out Lyme Disease.
I'm glad he's thorough.
And so is my bottom.
(The test results haven't come in yet, due to the holidays, but I'm pretty sure it's NOT Lyme disease.)

Other than that, it's been fairly uneventful around here.  We watched the Doctor Who Christmas special, which was a lot of fun.  I don't want to give anything away, but The Doctor + Santa's sleigh=ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!

This Saturday I'm going to a concert.  The first one I've been to in 10 years!  It's Midge Ure, who was the front man for Ultravox back in the 80's before embarking on a solo career.  I saw him in 1989 when I was in college, and now he's doing a solo acoustic tour.

I'm so excited!!!!!!!!

And lastly, there's a new yoga studio that opened up down the street, and they have a $30 for 30 days special, so I signed up this morning.  It's nice to get back into it, and I'm feeling stronger than ever.  I was even able to run on a treadmill at my mom's hotel without having to call the paramedics!

OK, one last thing:  I'm not usually one for New Year's resolutions, but I made 2 this year.  I'm going to stop pretending everything is fine if it isn't, and I'm going to learn to, in the immortal words of "Frozen",  Let It Go. When need be.  Which is a lot more often than I think it is.

And on that note, I will leave you for now.  Take care!

Sounds like a good plan for the year to me :)

This was the first christmas special we've missed ever for Doctor was tempting to turn cable back on just for it, but hopefully we can track it down soon. We picked up the box set of Season 8 and have been making our way through it over the holidays. LOVE the new opening credits. And Capaldi's doctor as well...a good change I think.

Completely irrelevant, but I keep giggling that below this post it's asking me to click a box to prove I'm not a robot :)
