Looking back on 2005, I do not have any regrets, it was a very stressful, difficult year, riddled with some wonderful, memorable times. 2005, will be looked back on with much favor, as Allison has been such a blessing to us. I cannot believe this year is almost over. I am looking forward to the coming year.
Tonight we are going to spend New Year’s Eve with Eric’s friends he had before we got together. Jeff & Heather have a baby that is 2 weeks younger than Allison. I have pumped milk and will be partaking in alcohol consumption, while my wonderful and sober husband watches the baby. I do not think I will feel comfortable having too many, as my mother’s instinct will be very strong. I am looking very forward to some adult conversation and hanging out with a couple that is neither single or childless.
I am going to Urgent Care to have my knees checked out. We went to the drive-in theater to watch, “Chronicles of Narnia.” I had to walk to the bathroom and on my way back to the car, my knees buckled and it took me 5 minutes to get back into the truck. I was in so much excruciating pain, I was in tears. I was in pain all night. I still can barely walk. I can only take Tylenol because I am breastfeeding, so it is not relieving very much pain. I have been icing my knees with frozen peas, slathering my knees with Icy/Hot, and just cringing with pain to walk up our porch steps. Something just is not right. Just OUCH!
