2008 had some serious highs and some incredible lows. If it wasn't for the fact I had a perfect wedding and honeymoon I'd say the whole year was for the birds. And not the pretty ones people like to take pictures of, but the dirty seagulls or annoying crows. The nasty birds.
In true sucky fashion, my dad called this morning and said my 91 year old grandmother was admitted to the hospital today. Apparently she has Atrial Fibrillation and her sweet 91 year old heart goes from beating 80 times a minute to 141 times a minute (holy nasty crow). There is a risk of blood clots, heart attack and stroke. I guess I can be thankful she is not in ICU and the doctors are saying she is responding to treatment well. It's just never great for a 91 year old to be in the hospital. Especially when that person is my grandmother who lives 10 hours away. *le sigh*
I spent a large part of the day in bed sulking and feeling bad for myself. There was a snowstorm outside, and I had no desire to get out of bed. Luckily I got lots of great cuddles from my pup and my SH and could eventually drag myself up to face the day (at like 2 pm, for reals).
We ordered some Chinese, watched a movie, played Guitar Hero on the Wii (I rock), played SceneIt Squibble and had a really decent afternoon. Then I remembered I had a goal to take at least one picture a month together with SH. Seriously I thought I'd have a ton of shots from Christmas but he's a picture-cranky-pants a lot of the time. Today, however, he indulged me. He suggested we bundle up and get a picture out in the snow. We were going to do snow angels, but once we actually got outside it was way too cold. How cute is he in his dad's old Air Force Jacket?
Now we're just watching TV (seriously why does Dick Clark continue to do these New Years specials? I mean I know he's done them forever, but it's so sad to watch him try and talk). I feel slightly less old because this year I have actually heard of the Jonas Brothers (although I still don't know their music, and don't see how girls find them attractive. They are no NKOTB!) and I'm going to make it to 12:00 without falling asleep (thanks to me staying in bed most of the day!)
Happy New Years everyone - may 2009 be everything you wish it to be and more.
