'Tis the Eve of the New Year

So out with the old, in with the new and all that jazz. Today is the day bloggers everywhere are supposed to write some great pensive post about all the highs and lows of 2008 while extolling the yet-to-be-actually-lived-through wonders to come in 2009.

Mostly, I had a terrible sleep last night, the LG had a terrible sleep last night and I messed up my shoulder so badly exercising yesterday that it's hampering my ability to breathe without pain. Bring on the New Year!

The great year of 2008 was pretty good with the exception of a few things, most notably my Mom's getting sick. However, looking ahead to everything we are anticipating in 2009 - all the things we can tell you about like a trip to Manitoba and the impending arrival of Sibling 'X?'* - and all the things we can't tell you about like that ___________ for _____ and we should _______ if _______. We are _________! Also, that ___________, which would be ______ for ____ and lots of _____________. Lucky ___________!

And so on.

So here's to 2008. And here's to 2009 trouncing it completely!

Happy New Year!

*For now, we will refer to The Baby as "Sibling X?." As you know, gender is determined by either an 'X' or 'Y' chromosome and since we know not which is it as this point, we will stick with a Question Mark and keep you posted. And yes, we WILL be finding out because surprises of this magnitude and me? NOT. FRIENDS. Actually, surprises in general - hate 'em. Hate.

I'm with you on the surprises of that magnitude. Every time I was pregnant I lived (LIVED) for the day I could find out what we were having! I had to know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

I haven't even done a post for the new year. Nevermind something great and pensive. I'm bucking the system.

One thing I'm glad for in oh eight is getting to know you better. :) You're a sweet treat from the past year. So, with that, Happy New Year to you, too!

A: I didn't read your previous post carefully, but now it dawns on me you are expecting again. CONGRATS! That's awesome.

B: What kind of exercising were you doing that you injured yourself that badly? That's the kind of think I'd expect from a washed up hockey player like myself.
