2012 vomit, bird beaks and a fedora

The new year didn’t start out so great.  I was up at 8 AM, waking my little ball of sunshine up so she would be ready when her father arrived at 9 to get her.  While she got dressed, I walked Ying.

Ying and I hadn’t been outside long when my stomach began rumbling and my mouth began to water.  I recognized those warning signs but it was too late to go back in the house.  Linda Blair style, I began puking in the front yard.  My eyes watered and stomach heaved uncontrollably.  If I hadn’t went to the bathroom before taking Ying out I would have wet my pants.   Now I would have been cursing myself for drinking too much on New Years Eve, had I even had one drink!  After the wave of nausea passed I sheepishly looked around to see if there were any witness. (no, my head did not spin around)   I didn’t see any sign of my neighbors being nosey so I guess Ying was my only witness.

Tesla was dressed when I came back in.  We snuggled on the couch until her dad showed up.  After a week together,  it was hard to see her leave.  She didn’t get upset or argue with me about going with her dad.  I think she was still half asleep.  I saw John pull up so I said my goodbyes and gave hugs and kisses to Tesla before I opened the door for her.

As soon as she went out I said “I love you baby!” and closed the door.  The less I have to look at John, with his bird beak nose, wanna be beard and goofy fedora, the better.  I found this man attractive at one time?  Love is blind.

I am actually psyched about 2012.  The Mayan calendar (which is very accurate) predicts the end of the world as we know it to be December 21, 2012.  That might freak some people out, but I am fine with that being my last day on earth.  What could happen that day that will change the world as we know it?  Hard to say, other than it won’t be a flood.  🙂

God Bless everyone with the start of this new year.  Times are difficult, the economy sucks and no one should take things granted.   Enjoy everyday with the people you love…there may be less than a year left on earth.  Tell your friends and family you love them because everyday is precious.

Love you!!
