Who gets to determine when the old ends and the new begins? Itâ€™s not on the calendar, itâ€™s not a birthday, itâ€™s not a new year, itâ€™s an event â€”big or small, something that changes us, ideally it gives us hope, a new way of living and looking at the world, letting go of old habits, old memories. What’s important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning, but it’s also important to remember amid all the crap are a few things really worth holding on to. -Meredith, Grey’s Anatomy
I’ve been looking forward to New Year’s Eve with Match pretty much since we first started dating. There’s just something about New Year’s eve that seems romantic to me. Ringing in the New Year with the one you love, kissing at midnight, all of that. I’ve had some pretty lame New Year’s in the past, and I was hoping this one would be different. Well we caught the nasty cold bug that’s going around, so both of us are feeling pretty lousy.
Match and I both started feeling sick right after Christmas, and I’m hoping we’re at the tail end of it. We’re supposed to go out with Baker Chick and LAX Guy tonight to BC’s house. I think as long as Match and I don’t drink a lot of alcohol we should be ok. But that’s kind of the point of New Year’s Eve isn’t it? I was kind of looking forward to getting a nice buzz on. 🙂 It’s been awhile since I did that. Still, I’m thinking positive. We only have to work half days today, woohoo! There’s only so long on a holiday eve that I can handle talking about the virtues of used cisco routers with my coworkers. I know I work with geeks, I know I am a geek, but sometimes it’s a little much.
I guess even if Match and I end up on the couch bundled up in blankets and wishing each other Happy New Year over hot tea instead of champagne, I can still be happy. Because this will be the beginning of a New Year with my Match, my other half. And I can’t think of anything happier than that.
