Can’t Christmas trees take themselves down?!

I was eyeing my tree last night.  It is already becoming a dried, shriveled up mess.  It’s sad, really.  I like leaving my tree up until the new year, but I don’t know if it will make it that long.  I think the only negative to having a real tree is the task of taking everything off, then having to dispose of it.  I will probably also have the pleasure of taking our office tree to be recycled (can a tree that has ugly red icicle tinsel all over it be recycled??), as I am the only one with a truck.  Yay.  That tree is definitely being taken down this week.  Mine will be coming down on the 1st, unless I get all productive on my day off and take it down the day before.

Speaking of New Year’s Eve, I’ve resolved to spend mine at home this year.  I have a great view of the Strip from my house, so I’ll be able to watch fireworks, have champagne in my brand new flutes that I got on clearance over the weekend and ring in what is sure to be the most awesome year ever with a kiss from my love…all in my pajamas, if I so choose.  Oh…and I’ll have caviar, because my mother re-gifted me some that she got from her landlord (I see myself having a taste, then getting rid of it. I seem to remember not liking it, but I can’t remember).  I suppose I should get some fancy pajamas or something, because I don’t want to be too under dressed. There will also be some sort of Festival of Meat and caloric intake going on in my home as well.  Mike is becoming a pescatarian and will continue his triathlon training next year, so evidently he wants to eat as much red meat as possible on NYE.  We’re talking a huge roast, stuffed with steak, wrapped in bacon kind of carnage.  Not really, but…close.  We’ll hike some of it off the next day.  I, however, am not cutting out meat…EVER.  Sometimes a girl just needs some semi-cooked flesh on a plate, even if it is only a few ounces of it.
I am so excited to begin a new year.  I feel like I just kind of skated through 2010 without actually accomplishing anything as far as goals are concerned.  That will change next year.  I have several things that I want to do for myself and my family…all of which I will post here, but I’m still reflecting and coming up an actual “To Do” list.

So, what are some of the things in store for this chicken in 2011?

That’s just a taste.  2011 is going to be EPIC.  What are you going to do?
