House Update: When last I updated you guys, we were anxiously waiting to find out whether or not the seller had secured a new place to live. Thankfully, we have cleared that hurdle and moved into normal closing procedures. We’ve done the home inspection and appraisal, both of which came back pretty much as expected. There are a few items that will need to be fixed before closing, but nothing major. We are excited, but also still cautious at this point. This has been a fairly non-standard and very stressful process thus far, so we don’t want to get our hopes up. Our closing date is currently set for January 18, and we are keeping our fingers and toes and eyes crossed that everything goes well.

My only New Year’s Resolution this year is to give up Facebook.┬áThe main reason is that I’ve been wasting WAY too much time endlessly scrolling lately. I hate being sucked in so much, but can’t really seem to self-limit. The other issue is that too often I find myself mad or sad at what I’m seeing on Facebook. Political drama, personal drama, unnecessary photos of animal cruelty designed to make you feel bad and donate money… I’m not saying I don’t want to be aware of what’s going on in the world; I read the news and discuss politics and world affairs with friends and family. I just don’t need to be bombarded with that stuff constantly. My mental health is more important to me than following along with all the minutia. So I’m deactivating my FB account at midnight on New Year’s Eve. I don’t know if this will be a permanent thing, but I’m planning to stick it out as long as possible. I survived before Facebook, and I know I’ll survive without it now.

I got a new Funko Pop to add to my Lady Army: Captain Phasma! It was a lovely Christmas surprise from my friend Kellie, and I couldn’t be happier to add another badass lady to the gang.
