Starting Fresh

Hello, this is Karina here. The new year has quickly arrived on us faster than I thought. This past Christmas break was very good. On Christmas Eve every year my grandpa and grandma come over after our Christmas Eve service. We usually have oyster stew, but this year we had pork loin instead. It was a very good pork loin. We celebrate my grandpa's birthday since he was born on Christmas Day. A funny thing this year was that he was telling people the wrong age. Our family quote was, "You know you're getting old when you have to use a calculator to figure out how old you are." My family has this wonderful tradition that we have done ever since I can remember. The tradition is to have king crab legs. I am in heaven! I absolutely love seafood and especially crab. We also have prime rib which is also very tasty. At another family Christmas I see family that I don't see very often. Family Christmas's can either be your favorite or they can just be plain awkward. I enjoy my family Christmas's, but they do become awkward at times, since there is no one around my age on one side of the family. It doesn't seem like Christmas has already happened, since there was no snow this year. Over break every year I do inventory, which is a good way to earn a little bit of cash. New Year snuck up on me to this year. Before I knew it I was with friends and the ball dropped. Hello 2012, a year for celebration. My brother is graduating this year which is exciting! I also have a resolution that I need to come up with. I have one in mind, but I am not sure what it is. One that I have in mind is to keep my room very clean, which seems to be my goal every year but it never lasts. I am thinking this year I need to come up with something good. Mhmm, this is tough to think of one. I will let you know later, when I figure my resolution out!
