II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

new years eve PITY party

okay dont read this if you dont wanna. i shouldnt even be typing it. i know im being a whiny baby and that is why i am typing without punctuation--to try to make it look as insignificant as it really is--but this sux. i am sitting here at home on new years eve checking my email in my jammies bored out of my mind. matt is reading the news paper in his recliner. brooklyn is playing a spongebob video game and grant is hopping around on one of those big balls with the handle that you sit on. we went to church watched a BOGUS movie. it was more of a documentary--by ben stein about evolution and darwinism. 99% of everything that was said in the thing was over my head and what parts i could understand--totally didnt interest me. besides that, i think that a discussion like that is just unnecessarily opening up a can of worms. if a person isn't wrestling with the concept of creation, then why present a 2 hour discussion on the subject--and especially one that isnt even presented from a strong christian standpoint? (though ben stein is jewish).
anyway--just totally NOT what i was expecting to be spending my new years eve doing (watching). then on the way out of church-got in a little spat with my other half and now we're keeping to ourselves. that's just sucky. i know the right thing to do would be to have a little heart-to-heart with myself and get over it and my little pity party and turn the rest of the evening around...but im not sure i care enough to bother. maybe ill just play a game with the kids and then go to bed.
we tried to get my parents to come over and "celebrate" with us...but they're fuddy-duds and think it's "too late" to do something if its anywhere near the 9 o'clock hour. (rolling my eyes).
you know what else i wanna complain about while im at it? on new years day-why do classes at the gym have to be cancelled? couldn't that very possibly be their BUSIEST day of the entire year? everyone is anxious to get in shape...and what better way to get started than to go on Jan 1st and take a group fitness class? i tell you, if i ever do pursue becoming an instructor--you can dang sure bet ill be having class on Jan 1st.
okay, enough is enough. i'm starting to tick myself off...so thats not good. i promised the kids a game -- better go make good on that while we're all still awake. hope you're having more fun than i am--no wait--thats dumb. of course you are. hope i end up having more fun than im having currently. there-thats better.
sorry for the negativity. what a lousy way to end 2008! I should probably just delete this whole post--but then i would have spent the last 20 minutes typing for nothing--so im posting. sorry if you read it though. okay-really-goodnight.
Here's to a much happier mood when I wake up in 2009~!

I had myself a minor one of those too. We were invited to two parties and were all prepared to take Easton and the pack n play and monitor out for a night on the town. :) E usually goes to sleep anywhere without a fuss so we're VERY lucky that he's so easy and we can still hang out with our friends even if it means toting all that stuff around with us. BUT last night Easton was getting fussy because he was tired, it was FREEZING cold with really high winds and we just decided to skip it all together. I was really bummed out because I had made chocolate truffles to take to the party, bought a bottle of sparkling cider for my pregnant self to enjoy at midnight and bought a new shirt that made me feel really cute. In the end, I was in bed by 11:30 and didn't even get to watch the ball drop on tv or kiss my hubby at midnight. BLEH! Oh well! There's always next year, right?
Let's hope today finds us both in better moods than last night, right?
Love ya!
P.S. We totally would have come over and celebrated with you if we lived closer!

Hope the first day of this year is a little happier :)

If it makes you feel any better - we canceled our plans and decided to chill out at home too. I did laundry and Chris watched football. Yippee!!!

I've heard the same things from so many people and am now wondering WHO decided the way NYE "Should" be spent? It's so much pressure!!! Why do WE have to feel bad for being safe and snugly at home with family? I saw an article yesterday (the 1st) with photos of bloody people who go hurt during their partying, photos of people passed out on the street with their "goods" showing, and photos of people sitting in their own vomit. Made me think twice about wanting to join them in their reveling. Maybe, deep down, THEY are jealous of US and wish they had a loving husband/wife to be at home with, bringing the New Year the same way EVERY year: with love and loved ones. ???

I'm just tired of the pressure and tired of feeling bad for not doing something that OTHER people have decided I ought to be doing. Hmm...

I hope your "NEW" Year started off better than the old one ended. We went to my Mom and Dad's on New Year's Eve, to spend the rest of the week with them. We spent New Years Eve at their house, watching movies, snuggled up on the couch. I think we even went to bed at 11:45! LOL! We may be old fuddy-duddy's, but we were safe and happy. What better way to bring in the new year, than surrounded by love and family.
