New year, new... what?

Husband & me, ready to go home to bed - New Year's Eve 2010 (technically it was 2011)
This new year is catching me off-guard. I don't know why I don't feel ready for it, but I have this feeling that things are about to change 'round here, and I'm not ready for the changes.

If there's one thing I know, it's not to repeat what I said last year. My mom, brother and I had a terrible 2009, so New Year's Day 2010 I said, "2009 sucked so bad, but it's over now! 2010 is going to be so much better!"

Well... it wasn't much better. Some things were better, I'm not going to pretend that it was all bad. After all, my husband left me, 6 months pregnant, in 2009. Can't get worse than that, right? (And we did get back together in 2010, which turned out to be a good decision, btw.) But the optimistic "it's going to be so much better" attitude was a little much.

So here's to 2011: Year of working hard, scraping by, and being realistic. Happy New Year, everyone! :)

  1. Oh my gosh, I am so right there with ya girl. That is exactly what happened to me New Year's 2010... "Good riddance 2009! 2010 is gonna rock!" ... ha. yeah right... Reality, here we come! Cheers to a new year of working hard and scraping by! :)

  2. I'm in the same boat. 2010 wasn't much better than 2009. As long as 2011 isn't any worse than 2010, I think I'll be ok. :) I'm hoping to aim higher than scraping by because its becoming a bit cumbersome. I've been scraping for too long! My goal is to just exceed the scraping, not necessarily by much though. :)
    Happy New Year!
