Happy 2009! Ow.

Well, hello, and why yes, I am hungover. What better time to write a blog post?

I've tried to write a wrap-up of 2008 but every time, I get a little weepy. I don't want to say that the entire year was a wash-out. Amazing, wonderful things happened this year. (Then some other stuff that wasn't so good.) But in general I just want to MOVE FORWARD! And look to THE FUTURE!

The future, it seems, is now. Here we are in 2009. So far, 2009 is quite cold. My 2009 head hurts a little. Scott and I stayed home last night, making up ludicrous toasts by the light of our crackling, carcinogenic Duraflame fire. I tried to get him drunk, Internet, but only succeeded in getting myself drunk, which as my friends know is not hard to do. I can get tipsy just smelling some wine. In fact, the thought of it—whoops, I'm drunk now. Crap.

I don't usually do resolutions, but this new 2009 me is thinking hard about them. First, though, I need some Tylenol. Meanwhile: Happy New Year, folks. I hope this year brings you everything you wish for.

It's January 5 now. We gotta know: did the Tylenol work?

oh don't make resolutions! it will put me to shame. I couldn't face another year of a list of things I'm NOT going to do. If I cheat and put things down I know I will do, I won't do those either. The pressure. The arrogance. Telling myself what I'll do. It leads to all out rebellion. Against myself. Is there any wine left? Happy 2009, Finslippy!

I had an up-and-down 2008 as well. Glad as hell to have survived it. Yay, 2009. Thank God you are here, 2009.

OK, the whole drunk thing cracked me up. The ONLY time I've ever had a hangover was after a night of my husband and I doing shots in the kitchen after the kids were in bed. Two hours later, I ended up barfing over the back deck (only time I ever puked from drinking too). I was so loud I woke my two year old. He started crying thinking that the monsters were getting me.

Come to think of it. I'm not going to sign my name on this one.
