The family and I were out and about for most of the day Monday. Had quite a few errands to run… dropping off donations before the first of the year… and mostly doing a major shop at Target for all the furniture and shelving we needed to organize the rest of our stuff. It only took us 3 months since we moved in to finally get this house in order, that’s not bad, right?
After a long shopping trip with cranky Sofie, we headed home to start putting all of this stuff together!
I had to leave for a few hours to meet with a client for a trial session at my studio, then came back in time to make some New Years Eve food (traditional Japanese udon for long life).
Last New Years Eve, Sofie conked out way before midnight, but no, she wasn’t stopping this time! She stayed up to party with mommy and daddy, and we even let her try some sparkling cider (non-alcoholic of course!). She loved staying up with us, and we had a nice time watching the New Years Eve celebrations on tv and hanging out as a family. I even had some time to make a little video for my Youtube channel, which has been dormant for a while.
By midnight, the fireworks were going off all around us, and Sofie kept saying “boom, boom, boom!” and “SHUSH!”. Kind of wish we were able to watch some of the fireworks, but hey, there’s always next year.
Not too long after we rang in the New Year, we all turned in for bed. Hopefully this won’t mess up Sofie’s sleeping patterns too much…
