Happy New Year!!!

Here's my New Year's Eve...


I made a big dinner, that only Bob and I ate.
My mom was too sick to eat (the whole house got the flu last week) and both the kids were too "busy".

Naturally, all the hor d'oerves I made went untouched as well. Boo.

Then, when I reached to get the champagne glasses for a New Year's toast before my mom hit the sack early (party pooper), I got bit by a spider or some sort of creepy bug.

I didn't even notice until 10 minutes later when my fingers started to swell uncomfortably on one hand and my wedding rings got stuck! I had to pry them off. But I still though, hmmm, that's weird, maybe it's the champagne?????

Then about five minutes after that, I could no longer make a fist with my left hand and when I looked at it the top of my palm was all swollen and red and my fingers were all puffy as heck. It was like ninth month pregnancy swell, without the promise of a cute baby at the end.
Actually, it still IS that way, seeing as how my hand is still all puffed up.

Good thing I'm not allergic to spiders!
I'm sure the end of this story will be super dramatic...as per the whole rest of 2006.

I bid you adieu 2006! Adieu, adieu.

I took an antihistamine and iced it, and woke up to a normal hand!!!
Yay!
So much for drama...

I just posted pics of our NY's drama.

Well, the drama came later I guess.

I woke up with a normal hand and icky cold symptoms...
I laid around feeling like crap for awhile. This gave me a "bad attitude"...

Later on I got so cranky I called my mom a bitch and my husband a 12-year-old. In my defense, she kinda was being bitchy and he really was being an immature dork...but still...
No need for outbursts!
