I can't believe this post! I don't know whether to laugh, cry, scream or all of the above!
I must have just missed everyone up in the middle of the night. There were a few of us in the chat I think around 2 or 3 am. I can't remember. But believe me in my case it wasn't from partying! I spent the evening as I do most New Year's Eve's in recent years - home alone. But I kind of have grown used to it (or so I tell myself) and last night was pretty resigned to watching all the tv fireworks and not thinking much about
others when around 11:30pm my cousin calls from a restaurant where she and others are partying....she had good intentions but all it did was remind me of things I can no longer do.
So the emotional pain brought on more physical discomfort. Then in the middle of the night I was in the chat here. Finally went to bed around 4am or so, but was up and down and on one of the "up" trips noticed all these lights in the neighborhood. Firetrucks with their big bright spot lights and twirling red lights. No sirens, as they're usually pretty quiet when they come into the neighborhood at 6am! (it was still dark, of course) I couldn't see any fire.... was probably a Christmas tree or something but the ambulance came and looked was there for awhile. I used all of this as an excuse to stand at the kitchen counter and eat M&M's. Of cousre then I was wide awake. Turned on morning tv. i can't remember when I went back to bed but I just got up a couple of hours ago. I swear some of us are becoming vampires!
I have to admit, though, gunfire takes the prize!!
Now I sit here with heat wraps around my neck. Something is getting worse in my spine, and I'm afraid to even think about
it. Scarred, those new symptoms in your feet are no fun either. I've had those for years, and it seems to slowly spread. I hope yours doesn't.
First day of the new year and I feel like I'm falling apart!
