We had a very quiet Christmas. I spent the day cleaning the garage, and some friends came over for a while in the evening. The kid had already opened gifts already. We did go to the Christmas Eve service at church, and that's about it. I can't say I'm not glad Christmas is over. Maybe next year I will feel ready to celebrate, but this year, I wanted to hold onto last year.

I have recently discovered a new solace in reading that I had lost for a long time. Why? Because I have discovered that I just don't absorb the material in the same way when I read on my kindle. Paper books make me happier, make me feel more as I read them. I had been slogging through A Winter's Tale for months on the kindle, then I suddenly had an itch that I wanted the physical book. I went out and got it, and I've ready about 30% of the book in the last three days. I'm trying really hard to not be as materialistic, to use sustainable resources, to not clutter my house or my life, so I'm resolved to go back to using the public library and reading actualy books.

I don't have any goals for 2015. Find more pleasure in my existence, I guess. For now I still take everything one day at a time, and don't really look at the future. It's the best I can manage.
