Hello bros, and Happy New Year! I missed you dudes.
I just took a three week breather from the old blog and I’m not gonna lie, it felt pretty great! I really needed that time to prepare for the holidays and enjoy a bit of R&R with friends and fam. I hope you all had happy and safe holidays and NYs celebraishes too!
We celebrate the New Year the same way we always do, a few of my pals jump into a freezing Minnesota lake, on a freezing New Year’s morning – and I watch them. Then we drink and eat a lot.
I’m really looking forward to getting back to house projects and blogging in the coming weeks and months. I’ve almost finished up this bedroom makeover thingy – I swear. I’ll have more to share with you on that real soon and hopefully a reveal by the end of the month. Also we (the old man and I) are starting plans for a basement renovation (coming this spring) and I’ll be sharing all the dirty details with you as they begin to be realized. I’m really excited about all the possibilities for that space.
Anyway, there is stuff going on and many home projects to look forward to – hopefully it’s enough to painlessly make it through these coming winter months. Also, I got a bunch of tools for Christmas and am looking excited to put them to use ;)
I want to do this so bad! But oh dear god doesn’t it feel like you got hit by a truck (a truck made of ice)??? Are wetsuits frowned upon? I honestly am not sure I could force myself to jump in. I guess I have almost a year to work up the nerve.
I hear it does feel like that. I’ve watched people jump every year for the last 9, people don’t even scream after they get in – they are just silent, their breath vanishes from their body. It seems miserable, but they seem to like the adrenaline rush. You should try it, I think about it every year, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. I’m a baby like that though. Think about it.
