Happy New Year Everyone!!
Welcome to 2007!! I'm so excited about this year and all that it will bring!! What will it bring, I don't know--a date would be nice, though--but I'm looking forward to whatever it is!! I've already been to a wedding this year...and I have four more to go, thus far. I'm participating in three and attending a fourth. I told one of the soon-to-be brides that I'm going to have to start a "bridesmaid account"--to be set up like those holiday accounts--if things keep going the way they have been! I'm very happy for all my family and friends who are getting married but WOW, it can get costly for someone like me!! Wow!! What with dress, shoes, hair, jewelry, makeup, mani- and pedicure and TIME, it's a lot of money involved! Whoo! But it's all good; I do it because I love them! I also have a few friends who are expecting babies this year...my future godson is due in the next couple of weeks! (My best friend is having a baby boy and is due on January 24th, I think!) YAY!! One of my FAVE co-workers is expecting a baby in March; another friend is having a baby and she is due June 2. So lots of weddings and babies in my future--none of them mine, which is more than OK with me! Earlier, I was having a discussion with some co-workers and I realized that I'm a little worried about when I become a wife and mother. I was watching President Gerald Ford's funeral on TV--I was home because I'm an employee of the federal gov't and we got off for a national day of mourning--and I saw his widow being escorted in by Pres. Bush. I was thinking, "Wow, what will she do now?" They had been MARRIED longer than my mother has been BORN! I was wondering if her whole life had been dedicated to being "Mrs Gerald Ford" and "mother of Sarah, etc". I mean, we all know she had the clinic and all but like, when you've been with a person for more of your life than you haven't been with them, do you become identifiable as a part of them? I am a little afraid to lose myself as I become someone's wife and mother. I was assured though, that it doesn't have to be that way!! I guess not!! Oh well...one day, we'll see!
On a completely different note--I think Chris Brown is a lil cute now...Not as in a "young boyfriends list" cute, but more like if my younger cousin was interested in him, I'd be like "aww, yeah, he's cute!" And my current favorite song is "Poppin" by him right now!! YES! That is all!
