Goodbye 2008.... hello 2009!
This was the first year that I did not post a Christmas greeting, but simply put I had ample reason: BabyGirl, Lil Man and I all came down with strep throat within 3 days of each other and our Christmas kinda sucked.... hardcore. So, let us thank the stars for antibiotics and get ready to say goodbye and good riddance to 2008 and offer a big welcome to 2009. May the New Year find us all healthy and happy and hopefully on a much better path than 2008
offered us, eh? As we look towards '09, let's all cross our fingers and hope that we can soon pee our pants in glee as we watch O'Reilly have to choke out the words "Senator Al Franken of MN!" And let's all say a prayer that the bloody insanity in Gaza ends mutually, although when news & images like this and this are seen, it's hard to imagine any resolution arising peacefully, as both Hamas and Israel are literally going out of their way to ensure the destruction of the possibility of a 2-state solution. And let's also pray that America gets set on a path that can finally make us proud and prosperous. Now Hubby and I are off to welcome guests for a night of entertaining... and oh yeah... plenty of champagne will be cracked open. We have much to be hopeful and very very worried about in this new year, so a wee bit of alcohol will take the edge off. Happy New Year!
