Farewell 2008; You won't be missed

If you're one of the people who read my blog on a regular basis, you know that this past year has been a really rough one for me. Too many hospitalizations and complications with medical equipment made 2008 one of the relatively worst years on record for me. Frankly, I'm glad to leave that all behind me and push forward into 2009 with a sense of hope and optimism. My husband and I were talking about this very thing after breakfast this morning. We've seen how we cope under the unpleasant situations, and we're ready to just enjoy life for awhile.

Of course that's more easily said than done. I've been on disability from work for awhile now and I have to admit that there are days when I feel, well, bummed out about it. Brad reminded me this morning that there's more to life than just working. Yesterday, for example, was a nice glimpse of what it's like to have the pressure taken off.

Every other Tuesday is the day we have a cleaning service come. While they were here we got out of their way by going to a movie. I'm a huge James Bond fan so we finally went to see Quantum of Solace in the theater. The movie was good. Not great, but good. Plenty of action, but not much to slow the pace. After the movie we went to Ruby's for lunch. We hadn't been there in a long time. I ate WAY too much and got a bit of a stomach ache but it was worth it to be out on a "date" with my husband. We finished off the outing with some walking around the mall for awhile, then headed home.

I didn't sleep the best last night, but that's probably a lot to do with the prednisone. I hate that stuff. Hate with a capital H.

Today we're just lounging around the house enjoying the fact that we don't have anything we necessarily have to be doing. I might take a trip to the grocery store later, but right now I'm content to sit on the floor typing this blog entry and watching the bunnies run around.

See you in 2009!
