All her dreams are made of strawberry lemonade . . .

Here's to an amazing 2008.

Wishing you all a very happy new year. All the best to you and your loved ones.

On a side note, even though I'm very unhappy about tonight's arrangements, I'm feeling very positive and excited for this new year to come. I know it's going to be great. : )))

Not unhappy because of where I'm spending New Years. I'm happy I'll be with my family and people who are excited to bring in the new year with me.

Not happy because ultimately, it was you who chose not to be with me. Not me. And I hate it so much that you despise the holidays and ruin it for me because of that. And I think it's something big enough to destroy us.. though I wish it wasn't.

This is how it is: I remember growing up and all the excitement my mom would have trimming the house with decorations and being always so content and happy around all the holidays.. and my dad not giving a shit and being such a killjoy. He hated them all. I don't even know if hate was a good word to use.. he was just indifferent and could give a shit about any single thing. And he let it be known. Over and over again. And he'd kill my mom's spirit. And she had lots of holiday spirit. So, there. You have it. Why it bothers me so GOD DAMN much that you hate the holidays. I don't know how to be ok with that.

So, happy new year everyone... here's to the end of this rocky year.
I'll drink to that.
