Just Jot It January 1 – Nostalgia, the good and the bad

I’ve had a lot going on this week, which was only compounded by the holiday. Thank goodness I’ve had the past two days off so I could start the recovery process (hopefully) from this darn cold that has been killing me. I also spent quite a bit of time at the hospital with my brother and his wife… (Tune in tomorrow and I will give you all the amazing news. I would do it tonight, but I’m pretty exhausted and I want that particular post to be perfect!)

The boyfriend and I decided to go on a date today. It was mostly just a movie, but we also really wanted to do dinner. Sometimes the hardest part of a date is deciding where to eat. We drove around the entire complex and finally decided on a place we have both been before, but I probably haven’t been there in five years or more.

I have to say, it was pretty terrible. The restaurant I remembered from five years ago is not the same place we ate at tonight, despite the name on the sign. My boyfriend is the guy who will eat all of his food, even if he is miserable afterwards. We both left a lot of food on the table. He even said that if he’s leaving food on the table, that means it was really bad.

Thank God the movie was the nostalgia I knew it would be.

I was the person who wanted to see Star Wars the Force Awakens on opening weekend and everyone scoffed at me that it would be insanely busy, or it wasn’t worth it. And yet, everyone else saw it opening weekend except for me and the boyfriend. We finally had a few free hours today and two free tickets.

It was amazing! I loved everything about it. I loved that it had some of the original characters and I fell in love with all the new ones. I particularly loved that Rey was a strong female character who ended up saving Finn’s life on multiple occasions, rather than the reverse. It could have come across as forced, but I don’t think it did.

It was a fabulous way to start off 2016 and now I’m putting it down here to start my blog’s new year. (I was trying to think of how to use the prompt word, but I didn’t want to be persnickety, so I decided to let it go)

Happy New Year to my WordPress family! I hope you had an amazing 2015 and I’m raising my glass to you and the start of another amazing year.
