Happy 2009! As I sat here last night, waving good-bye to 2008 (with my middle finger), I offered up a little prayer to the Universe that 2009 would be a better year… for the whole world, not just me (I’m not totally self-centered).
So… this morning I woke up to gloriously blue, sunny skies and big hugs from my little girl. I happily hiked around in the woods with my equally happy dog, which is one of my favorite things to do. I found a completely unexpected $25 in the pocket of my jeans when I was doing laundry (no clue how it got there). I made a huge pot of my fabulous chicken-veggie soup that’ll see us through the next couple of days. I spent a couple of hours browsing around the bookstore this evening, spending a gift-card I got for Christmas (and I bought 5 books, all of which sound great). My niece came over to spend the night and there were no 9-year-old arguments (miracles do happen). And they went to bed on time! And I’ve spent the rest of the evening reading wonderful blogs, written by bloggy friends who are incredibly talented and insightful and funny (yeah, I mean all of you… duh).
All in all, I’d say my 2009 started out pretty damned well. Hope yours did, too!
