jon and i didn’t go out on new years – mainly because i had a migraine and a sinus infection (which i am still suffering from the tail end of). honestly though? i’m kind of glad we didn’t have big plans. 2008 was a hard year for me, both personally, and through seeing what some close friends of mine went through. i didn’t much feel like celebrating a year where i saw dreams, love, trust, and many more things completely shattered.
i myself went through some stuff, and i have to say, i am glad 2008 is over. 2009 is a fresh start. a new year. a beginning to what i hope will be the best year yet in my marriage.
2008, granted, wasn’t all bad. i developed new friendships, that i feel are lasting. i started a new job, which so far, i love. my baby sister got married to an amazing guy who is absolutely perfect for her. i discovered the twilight series, and realized i could crush on a fictional character, and am completely unashamed to let people know. friends graduated, got pregnant, engaged. i got my second tattoo, which i love. and so much more. i have a lot to be thankful for.
tonight though, i sit in bed, and am having a hard time focusing on the good, because some of the hard, trying things are outweighing it right now.
and this is why i should probably be sleeping at 12:30am, instead of blogging. ha. that’s what i get.
