So I read back to skip=380 to get me to yesterday afternoon, and then I sniffled like an idiot for a couple minutes. You guys, 2008. It hadn't really hit me until now that it was over, because yesterday I was so BUSY --

I drove very slowly through a ridiculous snowstorm with [livejournal.com profile] janet_carter to pick up [livejournal.com profile] impertinence and [livejournal.com profile] loveyouallwrong, bought ALL of the alcohol, drove to NJ to pick up [livejournal.com profile] kalpurna, and met THE INTERNET at [livejournal.com profile] fayemeadows apartment for NYE shenanigans, cuddling, and fireworks viewed across the entire horizon from Faye's amazing balcony. I was putting on my coat at midnight so I missed the big moment, and then I went right back to hours of more shenanigans, cuddling, and laughing, until we left to spend the night with THE INTERNET in PA.

This morning, we all got up and dressed with remarkable efficiency, then went to a diner and drank all of the coffee, before hitting the road for home. *tired!*

As many of you know, I had a gastric bypass in September. It's weird, but it seemed to sort of change how I viewed time this year -- in my mind, everything either happened in September (surgery, MissP's baby, the election) or in 2007 (everything else).

But 2008 brought me so much -- more of everything than I ever expected )

It seems to me like 2008 was the kind of year where lessons were (kind of) learned, joy and misery were had in wonderfully unbalanced proportions, much cold was endured for silly reasons, and many mashed potatoes were ruined.

But the things I am going to take with me to 2009 are surprise and gratitude -- for the love so many of you showed me this year, and how deeply and sincerely I love you back.

Happy New Year, you guys. It feels like a good one. <3
