HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Wow, it's 2009. I can't wrap my brain around that, yet.
I feel like as I get older, the years are just flying by in rapid succession. It's a scary thought! I'm not afraid of getting older, not exactly, but I think I am afraid of "losing time" and not feeling like I have accomplished enough in my life. With this pregnancy, one piece of that feeling has been chipped away. I feel like Daryl and I have made THE MOST impressive change in our lives, thus far. Am I freakin' scared as hell about where it will lead? Hell yeah! I'm not going to sugar-coat it. I'm scared shitless about being responsible for another life. I can't even pay my bills on time, or remember to grab that gallon of milk from the grocery store that we need, or keep up with the laundry (yes, I often wear Daryl's socks when I run out of my own clean socks!). But I also feel honored and eager and in some senses, ready, to enter this next chapter in my life.New Year's Eve was pretty uneventful. 2008's holidays were all really low-key this year for us. New Year's Eve night was no exception. I had fast food (healthy, I know) for dinner, watched some boring tv while Daryl broke out and used the snow blower on ours and our neighbors driveways, and I was in bed by ten p.m. I wished everyone a Happy New Year in the morning and that was just fine with me. I remember all the crazy New Year's Eve partying (drinking!!) of the past, and how much fun it was, and the crazy part is, I really don't miss it in the least! I love my quiet nights at home with Daryl. And I will love it even more when we have this little bundle of love at home to cuddle with.
After all that rambling, I guess all want to say is that I hope you all had good 2008 and now head into a bigger and better (and healthy!!) 2009!
