A Bumpy Start


Well you don’t even have to say it, I know.  This picture is super grainy, super dark and not in any way even kind of awesome.  However, if I start you all off with super low expectations in 2012, I have no where to go but up.

I have no shame.

This was from New Year’s Eve day.  James was taking for-e-ver to get ready and I was getting bored.  Well actually, I was getting impatient.  So I decided to snap a picture of my outfit to prevent nagging.

Anyway, so eventually we traversed from his house to mine and got ready for a down-home, family fun New Year’s Eve.  Complete with:

  • Much ado about my sparkle skirt:

  • Perhaps a fireworks mishap that sent a bunch of people running into a house in order to take cover.  War zone style.  Not us though… that definitely didn’t happen to us.
  • James & I nearly meeting our end as a recycling bag broke and a whole mess of glass bottles fell down the stairs toward our position at the bottom.
  • Several games of Catchphrase that left me pondering just why, oh why, am I so incredibly loud??

I honestly am still having a difficult time processing the fact that 2011 is over.  I feel like we should be in about March still.  It’s that bad.

Yet on New Year’s Day, when I woke up (okay when James’s gotta-get-up-early-to-go-to-the-Patriots-game alarm woke me up) bright and early, I exclaimed to myself ‘2012 is going to be my year!’  I’m not quite sure what made me think that because generally I’m not the most optimistic person, but something feels right about 2012… so I’m going to roll with it!  To be honest, not a whole lot has changed since last year, but I just know this new one has good things in store for me.

Perhaps even if it’s only this optimistic outlook.

  1. I have really high hopes for 2012. It's good to be optimistic!

  2. I feel the same way about 2012- optimistic, which is weird because I'm usually the grumpiest person ever. But yeah, this year is going to rock! But tell your...friends to be careful with those fireworks!

  3. I think I need to adopt that as my mantra;
    "2012 is going to be my year"
    and hopefully, things will start to fall into place and I will stop feeling so lost in the world.

    Here is to 2012 being our year!
