January wasn't too exciting, it went by very quickly. The highlight of the month is that we went on a mini vacaction to Vegas the last weekend of the month. We stayed in a fountain-view room at the Bellagio and it was very nice. They even have a TV channel that plays the music that accompanies the fountain show so we had an awesome view of the fountain performances. We also saw "Le Rêve" at the Wynn and it was breathtaking. We ate at some favorites, as well as some new places, and we went to the new Aria casino and hotel which is just gorgeous. We didn't take any pictures because we've been to Vegas several times now and just didn't want to lug a camera around. We also did pretty well gambling and didn't spend all of the money we went out there with!
Other than that, not much went on which is good because we had such a busy past few months that we are a bit fried and just want to lay low for a bit and spend some evenings and weekends relaxing at home. We signed up for a set of adult hockey clinics at the YMCA near our house for Saturday nights, while JC is no longer playing in leagues.
Work for me is in its busiest time of the year (Dec-Mar is just chaos), and I think I am pretty much out of the woods in terms of worrying about job security because my business unit had a record high revenue year in 2009. Huge changes are coming in how we handle projects, so on top of our usual mass chaos, things are going to get ugly. I come home just utterly drained these days and spend my evenings starting at hockey games on TV and going to bed early. Fun fun!
So sorry this update is so lame, but it's been nice to slow down the pace of life a bit! Just so this isn't too terribly boring, here's a cute cat pic.
