And so today begins my much-needed not-quite-two-week vacation. The past month has kicked my ass, and I am very much looking forward to turning my brain (mostly) off for a while. As a precaution, I've posted a reminder:
We'll see if I stick to it.

This year has been HARD. Between work, the To-Baby-Or-Not-To-Baby thing, more work, hurricane, more work, stupid bullshit foot surgery, more work, panic attacks, more work, not to mention all the scary real world shit that I have sort of ignored because it was all I could do to handle my own business...I am SO OVER 2008. And while, realistically, 2009 does not appear to be any less challenging - it's likely to be just as grueling, if not more so than this year - I'm hoping to have learned enough about myself and what I can handle (or not) that I can at least manage it all a little better.

Now I wash my hands of the remaining 8 days of the year, and 2009 can Suck It and wait until I'm ready. Bring on the food, friends, family, and more than a couple glasses of wine. Let's all enjoy the In Between, shall we?

2008 sucked ass. I am very much ready for another year. Not so much 2009, because I just found out that Emmi needs TWO surgeries in the next three months. So that is how I am rining in the new year. Can I skip to 2010? That year might be okay for me.

Happy Holidays and stay off the email!

Excellent wine + Farkel + More good wine + Apples to Apples + Another glass? Sure! + Trivial Pursuit Pop Culture = One hell of a night with G&J (plus the husbands).

Eff off, 2008. Bring on the goods, 2009. God knows we deserve it.
