Superstitions (Happy Drunky Drunk Day!)
I got to thinking this morning whilst twittering about things that people are superstitious about.
For instance, I don't like odd numbers and tend to think only bad things will happen on odd numbered years. So, tomorrow being the first day of 2009 does not sound great to me.
I'm not necessarily a superstitious person- I've had more black cats than I can count! I've walked under ladders, rocked chairs when no one was in them. But, I like to make wishes at 1:11, 2:22, etc. And if I don't get it in before the minute changes, that's bad news bears! I don't like the color red, I bless the roadkill... I'm sure I could think of more.
Ringing in the new year brings up many thoughts for many people. It's a time for resolutions, new beginnings, new problems, new solutions. My resolution for this year is to be less judgmental. My hope for this year also is for L to be less stressful to me. He turns one on Jan. 2 and has been not even remotely as easy as his sister. He still has sleep issues, is still clingy and quite the whiner! I love him to pieces, but am hoping that being one will change some of his baby problems. I'm sure it's wishful thinking, but there's nothing wrong with wishing!
Well, Happy New Year to all my readers (the whole 5 people who may see this, lol) and maybe in 2009 I will pick up a third follower! *fingers crossed*
