2008 Randomness

I have to apologize for my lack of writing over the holidays. I have no excuse - I was just being lazy.

Outta curiosity, how many of you played either Wii and/or Guitar Hero as part of your New Year's Eve celebration? Add some fondue, and that sums up how I brought in the new year.

My one New Year's resolution is to shred my papers.

In pregnancy news, I haven't yacked in over a week, and I seem to be able to eat a normal meal with only occasional "issues" thereafter. I may be entering the "all you can eat" trimester. Woo hoo!

Pumpkin slept in a big-girl bed for the first time. I've been reluctant to switch her over because she is such a good sleeper in her crib, and I haven't wanted to mess with imperfection. She slept at my mom's place last night, where there is no crib option, which is why we've started on this path. I was hoping to keep her trapped in the crib until she was about eight, but it doesn't look like I'm gonna be able to do that. Incidentally, with no programs or classes on the go during the holidays, I have managed to get her sleeping in until 9am on most mornings. The evenings have gotten a little longer, but it has been worth it. I'm so sad that I have to change this pattern.

My brother-in-law arranged his move back to Toronto from England, and took back all his crappy furniture that we have been storing for him. It has been taking up space in our house, and we have been blaming it for our inability to properly decorate, but now that it's outta here, our house is sadly lacking anywhere to sit, sleep, or put down a drink. Yes, I'm bitching about important issues such as furniture again, but we now seem to have a lot of work to do around here. I never thought I'd miss the furniture that smelled funny and had chew-marks from a badly trained basset hound, but...

That's all I've got for day one of this year. Maybe my one resolution should have been to create more high-quality posts. Nah, that's too much work. I'll stick with the shredding.

Happy 2008 to you all!

Great that your feeling better! You'll hate me when I say I yacked not in any one of my 4 pregnancies...lucky me?
Happy New Year to you too!

I wish we were playing our new Wii for New Years. But sadly, we just couldn't find one before the holidays :(

Happy new year! We did a lot of shredding yesterday, too -- so satisfying!

Wii and fondue in one post that is high quality posting!

Good luck in getting to the "all you can eat" trimester! 2008 promises to be a good one...

So glad to hear you're feeling better.

Yup, we too rang in the New Year with a Wii, although sadly, not Guitar Hero.

And seriously, you can't send them to university in a crib? Please don't disabuse me of this notion. :)

Happy New Year to you!

We got a Wii for Christmas and wanted to play it on New Years ... but the TV hasn't arrived at our new house yet so we sat and looked at the box.

Glad you are feelling better!

We are Wii-less and envious. Of the Wii, not the yacking.
