10 years ago

I don't really remember many New Years. We don't really do anything on New Years to be memorable (like tonight. . . wonder if we will actually be awake at midnight?!?) I do remember New Years 10 years ago though. Tug and I were living in Albuquerque. We were newly married. I was pregnant. We tried to go out to dinner with Max, Michelle and Brooke. . . the restaurant was super busy (Great American Land and Cattle Co.) so we ended up at Furr's Cafeteria instead (yum). We then went back to their house and (likely) played games. 6 month old Brooke was asleep until her mom woke her up at midnight to take a picture in front of the ball dropping on the TV. I wish I had that picture but that was before the age of digital (to think we had to use film back then, gasp).
Now we are 1455 miles away and I have no idea what the Wades are doing tonight (they never even called us back to wish us a Merry Christmas, assholes.) Anyhow, I am not sure why I remember this night, it sounds pretty boring. I just can't believe it was 10 years ago. WOW, a whole decade has come and gone. My how time flies! Good thing the whole Y2K thing didn't pan out!

OH yeah, another thing I remember from that time was the incessant playing of
two-thousand zero zero, party over
oops out of time.
so tonight we're gonna party like its nineteen-ninety-nine.

Happy New Year!
We are at home, but I hear there is a huge party going on just up the road.

3 people are laughing with me:

Paula said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Ten years ago I was sitting on the living room floor of my apartment, going through a divorce after 12 years of marriage, and weaning a 10 month old. My how time flies...

Shelly said...

oh Paula!!! But look what a blessing God has turned "that" into!!!

Hmmm... I don't see Michelle's comment on here ;) I'll check back...

Happy New Year!!!

Ten years ago I was lying in bed itching with the onset of chicken pox and saying Happy New Year to a bunch of bumps.
