Happy new Year

We wish you all the very best for 2010!! May all your dreams come true and that is gonna be a wonderful year.
So far I started the New Year with firsts..
It was the first new years eve that I spent completly alone, at least for a couple of hours. I woke up in the middle of the night on the 31st feeling sick. I threw up twice, went back to half asleep. So far it was ok, maybe I ate something wrong.. In the Morning when Caleigh woke up, I hardly made it out of bed, my whole body ached, headache, shivers the whole nine yards. I felt exactly like when I had the flu this October. What a nightmare!! All by myself, with two small children and getting the flu... I took some dayquill and waited to feel better... but I didn't. By 10 am I called my dear friend Tina, I know she would be in the Springs tonight, so I was hoping if she could come just for a little bit so I could lay down and get warm (I was freezing like crazy) After 1 I took some Motrim 800 and finally the meds kicked in and I at least could function halfways.
Tina and Matt came at 5 pm and they took the kids to their New Years Eve Party. As soon as they left I dropped on the couch and barley moved an inch until Tina brought the Kids back around 9 pm. I brought the kids to bed and went back to the couch. I was not sure if I should really go to bed.. I mean isn't it sad to go to bed before midnight on New Years Eve. But that was my next First. I did!! I went to bed at 11 pm. Why? Well, why not??? In Colorado it's against the law to do fireworks, so there was nothing to see (later I heard that they had a firework on pikes peak, that I could have seen), nobody to kiss and wish a Happy New Year.. so I went to bed. It was actually not too bad and not as sad as it sounds.. I really needed the sleep anyways.
This morning I felt much better, so thank Goodness it's not the Flu.
We went out for our morning walk and the New Year greeted us with another beautiful Colorado Winter day.
We didn't do a whole lot for the rest of the day, just hanging out. I tried to teach Caiden how to play Memory and Lotto and it worked suprisingly well. He lost intrest after 20 min or so, but when he pays attenion he does really good (we play modifid versions, he is not a genius;-) )
So 2010 started quiet for us.. which is good. One good thing happened already! It's 2010!!! Means my husband is coming home THIS YEAR!!!! Is that cool or what???

IT is okay to go to bed early on New Years...I couldn't stay up either and fell asleep by 11 too. This pregnancy thing is really exhausting now that it is close to the end.

Da is nichts schlimm dran!
Von 2008 auf 2009 lag ich den ganzen Tag auf dem Sofa und habe mir alles noch ein Mal durch den Kopf gehen lassen. Mario musste mich kurz vor zwölf sogar wecken ;)
Wenn bei euch eh nicht geknallt werden darf, wurdest ja noch nicht mal von der Böllerei geweckt :)

LG und ein tolles Jahr wünsche ich euch
