Wow, 2014. Time flies by so quickly - I still remember New Year's Eve 2000 like it was yesterday (my mom and I sat around watching the ball drop, drinking champagne in our pajamas.. as a 13 year old, I was happy as a clam, even though I think I only had one glass!)
Each year, instead of making resolutions and goals that I will never keep past March, I've picked a word that I would like to have reflect the upcoming year. My word for 2014 - fun!
My life, in general, is pretty quiet and I usually spend most spare time I have watching television, reading, blogging and taking in the odd local hockey game. Which is usually fine for me, and I LOVE being lazy and just relaxing at home. But, in the same aspect, I don't want to take any time or moments for granted. So - more fun will be in my life in 2014.
We started the year off well - we spent New Year's Eve at a casino, which has now become our yearly tradition. We had a blast, although, if it wasn't for me winning a small jackpot at the end of the night, we probably would have come out of there with less than we did!
I've already started planning this by waiting online for 45 minutes to get tickets to next year's 2015 World Junior Championship that starts at the end of December/beginning of January. We had to buy a package of 19 games, but figure we will take in a few days of hockey and sell the rest of the tickets. It's something my husband and I are both interested in, and it's a once in a lifetime thing.
We also have our anniversary trip planned for April. We aren't traveling too far, but will have a blast exploring Ottawa.
And, I think it is about time both of us fly on a plane. We don't have passports, so we will either be going to the west coast of Canada (British Columbia) or the east coast (Nova Scotia / Newfoundland). I'm thinking the East, because I have always wanted to see Newfoundland.
Overall, I just want to have some new experiences this year, lots of fun and share a lot of moments with my husband and our family! I also want to have a more easygoing and less stressful time in 2014. No more letting little things get to me!
