Yes, I married a New Year’s Eve baby. I fondly call him the last gift of the year. He dislikes that his birthday is the same day everyone is partying for a different reason. I suppose he has a point…
BUT, we do make the best of it. We don our hats. Present our gifts over dinner and cake. Sing HAPPY BIRTHDAY at the top of our lungs. From morning to almost midnight is birthday, birthday, birthday!
Then, we quickly switch out hats for the countdown to midnight.
Phew! What a rush.
A good Happy Birthday, Happy New Year kind of rush.
So far this year, I have eaten a BIG BOWL of black-eyed peas.
I have driven my new car – every day. See, I bought a car on my husband’s birthday. Well, I leased it.
We planned on using one car for the next three years and that is why I traded my car in a year ago. It did work out the last year. There were a few challenges. The break-in hit me especially hard. No car in the driveway…but really, that wasn’t the only reason to get a car. There were many. It was time and I needed it.
I didn’t think my credit would be good enough to lease, but lo and behold.
A brand new car!
I love it.
So, a very HAPPY NEW YEAR from our family to yours!
2015 – Be good to me.
How is yours going so far?
