Happy New Year!

January 8, 2010

Happy New Year a bit late!!  I hope that your NYE celebrations were everything you wanted them to be.  We certainly brought in this New Year with a bang, but not the same type of bang as when we went to NYC and stood in Times Square for 7 hours to see the Waterford ball drop.    Which I highly recommend to be on your list of things to do in your lifetime.  It was great and I hope to do it again…now if I could just convince my husband.  Anyhoo, as I said this New Years was certainly eventful in a way I could have lived without.  It started on New Years Eve with a little GI distress which kept progressing thru out the day.  By the time we went to our New Years Celebration, I was feeling flat out nauseous.  We pulled up to the par-tay house and I warned my husband, that this could be a short visit.  I stood in the house, trying to focus on what people were telling me, all the while sure I was going to pass out.  We made an early exit, which was just in time.  As the ball descended into Times Square, my dinner descended into another type of porcelain bowl.  If you get my drift.  I then proceeded to have various forms of GI disturbance  for THREE days.  At one point, it was so bad I was sure I was going to have to go to the hospital.  I usually get the stomach flu once every three to four years and it is not fun, but this was abnormally bad.  At least my parents were here to take care of the wee one.  I finally recovered Sunday evening just in time to get a head cold.  Yay for me.

Despite the above, 2009 has been one of the most blessed, surprising, and hectic years of my life.  It included the birth of our daughter, the progression of our adoption, a career move, building a new house, selling an old house, and living in a run down duplex until it was finished.  It exhausts me just thinking about it.  As I look forward to this year, I can’t help but get excited!  All the referrals to be had by friends and life surprises that I am sure will come our way (if last year is any indicator).  It is interesting to think that one day, something will happen, and everything will change.  You will get a phone call or take a test and your life will change course dramatically in the course of just one year or even one day.  Bring it on!

Happy New Year!

    Thank you for mentioning those life-changing moments. We forget how the tiniest thing (a phone call, a decision that seems small at the time) can make the hugest impact in our lives. Happy new year!

    So sorry you were sick – and that’s the worst kind of sickness. But I’m glad you’re better now. Happy New Year to you!
