I can't believe it is 2009...in an hour. I am a huge loser right now because I am sitting at home alone, well, Reese is in bed. Lance went to the Tech game tonight which turned out to be a horrible game. Reese and I spent some time earlier at a friends house with their family/friends. It was nice to get out of the house a little bit for the evening.
I am never a huge celebrator of New Year's. It is neat to see the year change but other than that it is not too exciting to me. I also never really set New Year's resolutions. I have goals for myself for the year but why make it January 1st that I am going to start getting in shape? We also don't do all the crazy eating things that people do to start the new year. I never did that as a kid and I don't plan on starting now. I really don't think that black eyed peas and collard greens are going to do anything to spark something new in my life. One thing that I do remember from being a kid was if we were acting up (probably because we were up way past bedtime...we were usually perfect, right mom?) our mom would say, "How you are acting at midnight of the new year is how you are going to act the rest of the year. You don't want to be bad the rest of the year do you?" Haha!! That was probably paraphrased. I always remember that every year and I try to be as sweet as possible at midnight because I want to be sweet the rest of the year.
Happy 2009 to everyone! May it be your best and most blessed year so far!!
