New Year’s Eve

MemoryI will not be unhappy when the clock changes from 11:59 to 12:00 tonight. 2008 has sucked completely for me, with a few brightish spots.

On the plus side, the boy and I moved in together, I started school, quit a job that I hated, got some good grades, met some new people, and made my current friendships stronger.

On the negative, my grandfather died, Eric’s grandmother died, his mother got diagnosed with a brain tumor that was taken down to MS of the brain, my sister had a miscarriage, and my father was diagnosed with leukemia.

So, 2009 will be a nice change for us.

Happy New Year!

snow storm 08

Possibly the last storm of the year has finally arrived here in Eastie a few hours later than the weather people predicted. Its been going strong for about 2 hours and with the setting sun, the sky has turned a lovely shade of purple with large swaths of white streaming by.

I have been productive today already! Ihave a few presents that need to be made, mainly a blanket for my nephew’s puppy doll and onesies for my new niece who will arrive in May. Soon, the tree will go on and I might nip out to the back porch to sip some of my cider once the wind dies down a bit. The storm is supposed to have a wicked tail, though, that is going to hit coastal areas fairly hard. They really mean Gloucester and Ipswich, but its entirely possible that it might here too.
I’ve also gathered the stable food stuffs from the pantry that we aren’t going to eat. Salad dressing, green beans, corn, tomato sauce…all are not being eaten by us and can make someone’s Christmas a bit better. Now I just have to figure out when I can donate it before the holidays (There is a food pantry down the street at a Church).
