2008 – The year I sorta-kinda thought would never happen

Jan 2, 2008 | Uncategorized

I had a moment this afternoon where I realized that I’m getting married this year.

This year.

In 2008.

I’m getting married.

I understand that when I said “yes,” it started the ticking clock. And of course, I immediately started to plan. But that was 2007.

Now it’s 2008, and in 10 months and 2 days, I’m getting married.


. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I haven’t even constructed resolutions. Usually, I try to have about 4 or so. A nice, even number that isn’t scary.

So, here’s a nice, even 4 that I just came up with:

Put up a fence and adopt a dog (so I have something to cuddle with that doesn’t make me feel like I’ve contracted the flu)
Learn some Spanish (so I’m not the silly white girl and can actually hold short conversations with Oscar’s family)
Get married (you know, because I’m like, in love, and stuff)
Become 1/4 the domestic goddess my Mom is (ie, learn how to cook things in my crockpot, keep the house clean, and redecorate in some fashion that isn’t college-graduate chic.)

Holy jeebus 2008. You have a lot in store for me.
