I can’t believe it’s already 2012! I hope you all had a happy new year! Our new year was spent the way it is every year. At home. We really enjoy just being with each other for the new year so we usually make some sort of dinner and watch a movie. This year was no different. We got our traditional shrimp ring from Publix (which I missed so much while I was in Chicago because they don’t have Publix there) and ended up cooking hot dogs. We thought about grilling, but with all the prep for little Miss Carly, we were just too tired. So we watched friends reruns while we made dinner. We ended up watching the episode where they have to name all 50 states in less than 6 minutes. Colby immediately said, “I bet I could do really well with that.” Long story short, we, too, played the 50 state game. Now, Internet, before I go further, I have to say, between Colby and I, he is the smart one, but on the last day of 2011, I was the smart one. He missed 8 states and thought Washington DC was a state. I missed 5. I was quite entertained to feel smarter, intellectually, than my husband, but the glory didn’t last long when I realized our missing link was Utah. After that, we took the pooches for a walk and then watched the movie “Crazy Stupid Love” which was actually pretty good. I love Steve Carell and he didn’t disappoint, though I do miss him on The Office. The movie ended 5 minutes after midnight to which, yet another new year, Colby and I said, “We made it to midnight!” Then we went to sleep. Lame. I know. We’re oldies, what can I say?
I try to blame as much on the baby as I can, so in doing so, I blame the baby for the fact that I have yet to pick up my camera this year… Since we’re all of 36 hours into it and all haha! We are still waiting for her to arrive. COME ON CARLY! My due date was yesterday but she has decided that I have to take her to court to evict her. Apparently my eviction notice means nothing to her. Hopefully I won’t have to be induced but if she isn’t out by the end of next week, I will likely have to be induced by Friday of next week because they don’t let you go past 42 weeks.
So, until then, I will probably be slower on the blogging. I REALLY thought she’d come before the end of 2011 and I thought I was good with my 3 weeks of prescheduled blog posts to last me through the end of the year, but Internet, I’ve found myself on the second day of 2012 having to write this blog post. Thanks a lot Carly. Fo realz. haha!
