Happy New Year!

What a first week it has been!  Happy New Year everyone! 
I fell asleep before midnight New Years Eve, but I did wake up to enjoy the fireworks and gunshots for around 15 minutes.  It didn't last all night like it sometimes does.  Then, I went back to bed.  I was completely okay with this NYE. 
I was off work the next day and we headed to my moms for our New Years Day lunch/dinner.  I ate a lot of black eyed peas.  I could use all the luck for the upcoming year. :)
I started a 101 things in 1001 days challenge.
I've been marking things off my list.  Realistic goals and realistic expectations.
I had Travel Team Try Outs for the Kansas City Roller Warriors on Wednesday and Thursday.  We voted and I made the team.  Our first game is February 9th in Milwaukee.  I am super excited and already planning travel.
Work has been busy.  Super busy.  It's always so.
I made a new to me Instant Pot recipe: chicken tikka masala.  It turned out perfect.  I think Garlic Parm Wings are going to be my next Instapot adventure.  This was seriously the most perfect Christmas gift ever.
My hot water knob in my bathroom decided to get stuck in the open position.  I was finally able to get it turned off, but not without a lot of work.  I went into the crawl space to turn the water heater off
 in case I broke anything and I wouldn't get spewed with hot water.  I forgot to go relight the pilot light last night though, so I'll have to do that after work because I need my hot water.

How was your New Years?  How did the week go?
Happy Friday!


  1. Congrats on making the team. I have to have hot water for a shower! You are pretty good to know how to do all that yourself. I'd have to call someone. Is that 101 things in 101 days? Interesting.

    1. It's a 1001 since 101 is a little short to get that many things accomplished. :)
      I got the water heater pilot back on within 10 minutes of getting home. I did have to have someone help me the first time (my crawl space was flooded), but since then I've been able to do it.

  2. Happy New Year, Morgan! Congrats on making the travel team!
