I made a few orderves for us to munch on (we were going to make our "lucky" meal...black eyed peas, cabbage, ham....all the lucky stuff your suposed to eat on a New Year to make it lucky....we don't like any of this but ham, we normally just make ourselves eat a couple spoon fulls of black eyed peas and thats it....but this year we are eating it ALL...but like I was saying we were going to make this stuff last night, but we remembered it's the 1st day of the New Year that you eat this stuff so we are making all that tonight) It may be the the nastiest 1st meal of our year, but I be darn it WILL be the luckiest!!! :o)
OK, so after we ate our orderves, Zach popped open some wine and we enjoyed our night of doing nothing, we watched a couple movies...played with our doggies and when that time came to ring in 09' we held each other. When the ball dropped and the clock hit 12:00am Zach gave me a kiss, looked in my eyes and said "THIS WILL be OUR YEAR"...I teared up b/c at that moment I really felt like he was right...I had this feeling that this WILL be OUR year!!!! He heard that at midnight you are supposed to open up your doors (to let the old air out so the new air could come in....and if you can't tell from above what our meal will be tonight we are not missing out on anything that will help our luck this year...call us stupid or superstitious, we normally arn't but this year is different, we want all the extra luck we can possibly get :o)
So after we let our "old air out"...and had a good laugh at our silly behavior, Zach went and got the champange so we could toast in our New Year...."To OUR year, to lots of Blessings and to each other always" after our toast he took me by the hand and we danced...there wasn't any music but we danced...this by far was the best New Years yet, I couldn't have asked for it to be any more perfect or any more special!
