We were supposed to have a few friends with kids over tonight to say goodbye to 08, and welcome in 09, even if it was going to be a bit early (before the young kids all needed to be tucked into bed). But, just like most of 2008, our plans were foiled and I am sitting at home with 2 sick kids and one sick husband. And I know I'm next to fall.
I've never been so glad to see a year end. It's been a year (or several) unlike none other, and one I hope to never repeat. Here are things I hope to NOT do in 2009:
Sell a house
Buy a house
Look for a new job
Watch someone die
Go through a lifetimes worth of possessions
Be sick for 9 months
Recover from birth
Be sleep deprived
For 09, I just want to be. Be happy, see friends, play outside, sleep and watch my children grow. I want nothing monumental to happen. I just want to be non dramatic, and maybe a touch boring.
Cheers to that and a good nights sleep.
