Welcoming in 2009

What did you do to welcome in the New Year?

I was teasing my husband all day about taking me out dining and dancing (mind you I have ni idea how to dance, so he knew it was teasing).  He had a hard day at work and I was just having fun.

Know what we did do? Went to bed…. at 7PM!  We were so tired and had planned on doing something on the 1st so we went to bed. Exciting? Thrilling way to welcome in the New Year? Was to us! We needed it.

On the 1st we had a great time together running around Austin. I saw parts of Austin I had only heard about (I am not a Texan by birth, but a married in transplant, so there is much of this state I do not know).

With all the stresses of life it was fun to just have a nice relaxing day with my husband.  If it was not for a cough it would have been perfect.

The cough!

By that night I was sick. Sicker than I have been in a long time and it is still here with me. Fever, cough, sore throat, ears hurting. I am Vicksed up from feet to throat. Aches, face hurt, what a way to enter the New Year.

I do hope you are having a better beginning than I am.
