ringing in the new year early

so I think we were cursed for ringing in the new year at 9:30 p.m.  There's probably some karmic rule that says if you are too lazy to stay up till midnight at least ONE night a year than your whole year is destined for misery.    

we and many other friends with little kids all thought it very sneaky to start the new year celebrations at 5 pm and ring in the new year around 9 and everyone can be snug in bed by 10.  perfect planning....but so far 2009 has brought...

a broken down car
a new car
a broken down car that miraculously now drives and we sold it ...I guess that's good luck

a scary trip on an ambulance with Eva

a first week of school

3 horrible colds

 a double ear infection (Eva)

2 bottles of antibiotics
an Adelaide throwing up all day

one fall down the stairs with a possible broken big toe (graceful me)
 and a partridge in a pear tree

Well, maybe if you get all the annoying crazy stuff out of the way the first week, then you'll be in the clear for the rest of the year!! YES!! =)
