Sleeping Through the New Year

I'm getting old.

I couldn't stay up to see the ball drop last night.

I don't mean the one that drops at midnight. I mean the one that drops at midnight in New York - 11 o'clock central time.

Chris and I were watching the Auburn-Clemson game and I fell asleep midway through the 4th quarter. Next thing I knew, I woke up and Chris told me the game was over. I got up and went to bed.

Good thing too, because Lily is teething and I was up with her from 4-5:30 a.m. (Now it makes sense doesn't it? When you have little ones you catch sleep when you can!)

New Year's Eve just doesn't hold the same excitement for me anymore. I would much rather hang out at home with my family or friends than be out on the road or at some party. Call me old. I guess I've just changed. Motherhood will do that to you :)

Happy New Year to all of you! 2007 was a good one for our family - full of new beginnings: a new career for me and a new experience of being home at night with my family. 2007 allowed us to watch Lily grow from an infant into a little tot who's constantly on the go and Ann Catherine just blossomed into this little person with the funniest personality.

Here's to 2008! We hope it's just as good - even better. I hope the same for you. May it bring you lots of blessings.
