This post is dedicated to the young lady in my life. Um, that didn't sound quite right. I mean, the young lady in my son's life. She is one of my biggest blog fans. And I am happy to have her in my blogs. She fits right in.

Happy New Year to all my blog world friends. I wish you all the best in the new new. Here is how we rang in 2010. I don't think Brian and I have ever gone out for New Year, and really I don't miss it. Because we have the best parties, right here, at home! The kids strive to stay up to watch the ball drop.
Nate made it to 11:30pm. We did wake him before midnight.
It has been an interesting holiday season. I have spent a lot of it with my leg propped up. So, our "party" goods were set up within my reach, on the large storage box that has become my foot stool/end table. Yes, that is my foot propped up along side the cider.
If you look close, those are NOT his ears!
Happy New Year 2010! That it "the ball" on the TV, lol.
What a New Year's celebration without noise
Awe, first New Year's kiss
My first kiss of 2010
That IS cider. Target was sold out of plastic champagne flutes.
Someone was shooting off fireworks, so we went outside to see. Nate got cold. Joshua is the bestest big brother.

For those who do not know, the earlier part of the day was interesting. A few weeks ago, I had an incident that involved Christmas lights and a step ladder. Well yesterday, I had a follow up appointment with the orthopedic doctor, to go over the MRI I had done of my knee the day before. Well, in addition to the fact that I tore up my meniscus, they found a blood clot in my calf. This had everyone in a tizzy and got me an ultrasound in the hospital, after hours, on New Year's Eve. Fortunately, I got home in plenty of time to ring in the new year properly. The good news, is the clot is tiny and with warm compresses it should re-absorb.

As for that pesky meniscus, we'll be taking care of that soon surgically. We are looking at Monday, the 11th. The silver lining? It got me out of jury duty. Serious, I got a summons for Jan. 11th. What a way to start the year.

I wish you all the best. I am confident that its only going to get better from here!

Yikes about the meniscus. Double yikes about the blood clot. Do they have you on coumadin or anything? I had a pulmonary embolism almost 7 years ago, so I get a little panicky about blood clots. Hope you are healing well now after the surgery.
