New Year, New Priorities

New Year's Eve 2006-

"Oh my GOD I am getting married next year! WOW! Let's get wassssssted and party until 4am!"

New Year's Day 2007 agenda: Sleep. Like forever. Take 8 million Advil and cruise through Taco Bell for lunch. Greasiness loves hangovers. Or hangover's love greasiness? I can't think. My head is pounding.

New Years Eve 2007-

"Oh my GOD I am going to have a baby next year. And I can't drink. Shit. And nobody knows I am pregnant but my husband. Quick, self, whip some story about antibiotics or something that nobody really believes. Swig some sparkling grape juice and pretend it is a delicious cocktail. This is going to be a long year."

New Year's Day 2008 agenda: Sleep. Like forever, again. I am so tired! Eat an entire pot of mac and cheese. Go back to sleep. Play some Wii. Eat more. Sleep more.

New Year's Eve 2008-

"Oh my GOD, why won't you stop crying?! Should we take him to dinner or not? He is going to be difficult all night. He will never sleep in his pack and play at our friends house with all of the noise! This is totally going to suck. Give me a margarita and a bottle of frambois QUICK to numb myself."

New Year's Day 2009 agenda: Try to sleep while Paul tends to Mason at 7am after going to bed at 1am. Get up at 8:30am, eat breakfast. A real breakfast. Not hungover at all. Play with Mason and feed him. Watch Mason fall asleep in my arms and smile as he dreams about bottles. Or Elmo. Or whatever nearly-four month old's dream about. Lay him down in his crib and think about how incredibly lucky I am. This is going to be the best year yet.

Hope you all had a safe, wonderful, hangover-free New Year's. Wishing you health in happiness is 2009!

And CONGRATS Colleen and Eric on your pregnancy. Enjoy every minute, it goes by so fast! Love you both!
