Ringing it in...solo!

Friday, January 1, 2010

Well, 2010 is here and a brand spanking new decade is amoung us!

This New Years Eve I did something I've never done before in my entire life....I welcomed in the new decade....ALL ALONE! Yep, that's right, Chris is back to work in his new county and won't be back home until Monday and well, Kyle left about 4pm to go spend the night with a friend(TRADER!). So I sucked it up and took it like a girl(which included running out to grab a qucik dinner and a trip to Blockbuster for movies). The dinner was wonderful and the movie I watched was so funny it made me snort out load....don't judge me...it was funny! If you have not seen The Proposal, you HAVE to rent it(I give it 2 thumbs and 1 wine cooler up)....anyhow....back to my oh so fun filled New Years Eve night....

....are you asleep yet, reading about my boring evening???? If you are, I would not blame you in the least bit...I barely made until midnight myself! So at 11:58 I dial Chris's number, that is something we have always done ever year he has had to work. We would always just be on the phone together when the chimes rang out 12...but what was that I heard on the line....just a constant unanswered ring......WHAT???...no answer???...doesn't he know what time it is???.....and then just like that, with his voicemail talking in my ear....

the clock struck 12....
it was over....
it was here....
where was Chris.....
2010.....
a new decade.......

....and I was all alone just holding the phone. No one to scream HAPPY NEW YEAR to, no husband to blow kisses over the phone to.

At 12:03 he answered his phone with a very gruff "HELLO!"
"well Happy New Year to you my wonderful hubs"
"where the hellopete have you been?"
"I had a car stopped"
"right at midnight...are you serious?!"

...didn't he know it was coming...DUH!

...couldn't he have just driven with his eyes closed for just a few minutes so as not to notice all the drunks driving on the highway?????....NO WAY! Not on his watch, no sirree!

So, we talked a few minutes and wished each other Happy New Year and told each other how much we loved & missed one another and then hung up. I went straight to bed and he went back to make some ones New Year the best evah! hehehe

ahhhhhh, the wife of a State Trooper.

...and to add more pity to my party...I never got a text back from my bf in Kentucky to say Happy New Year(she better have lost her phone in some bar cause that's the only good excuse I am taking right now cause other wise, I will start taking applications to fill her best friend position first think Monday morning!)

...and Kyle, I still haven't heard from him either! He never called or sent me a Happy New Year text either, so he is now grounded until his wedding day!

so enough about my night, how the heck was yours??????

Mine was very low key. Husband went to bed before midnight since he had to work the next day.

Happy New Year!

Bridget said...

I've had to ring in the new year by myself before...I watched a movie and gave myself a pedicure. This year, Michael and I were actually together. Happy New year!

Tamela said...

aw I would have partied with you!! I hope you have a great new year even thought you had to spend it alone.

Two of our friends got engaged at midnight. It was a great new years!

Becky said...

Awww... That's terrible. But now you've got me wanting to rent The Propasal:)

I have spent Many New Years On the phone with Mike and the kids in bed, so I know. (although he always picked up...he doesn't have the excuse of being a State Trooper. He better let those pizza's burn for one dang minute when a New Year rings in:)

Oh, that's a bummer. I'm so sorry you had to spend the night alone. If I'm being honest, the reason there were so few photos at the party I went to is because it was pretty SAD. Seriously.

But some of the people there read my blog, so i couldn't say that on my blog.

Happy New Year, my friend!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Real bummer....Wow...can it really be 2010....So glad I found your blog and look forward to many reads in 2010..Happy New Year..

Kristi said...

My evening was about as exciting as yours! We sat here and watched the ball drop, while I rolled over on the couch and "rested my eyes" on commercials. Watched it drop and a small kiss and headed to bed! Exciting I know! Happy New Year!!!!!!!!

I loved this post! So real and funny! We I was fast asleep at the stroke of midnight! I had gone to lay down with the little one to her grumpy hiney to bed, but momma feel right to sleep too. Wishing you and yours a wonderful New Year!
Hugs and Blessings,

Sounds so fun. I was in bed by 10:30. Sean went to duck camp and called at 12 to say happy new year but I was knocked out :) I'm a wild child!
