January 2, 2003
The most amazing thing has happened! I got a message on my answering machine from my ma, saying my dad had been looking for something in the basement and instead found…
My coffee maker!
One and a half years…I thought it had just been lost in a move…but no, it was apparently in a storage box, along with other things she didn’t mention in the message that I apparently didn’t realize I was missing. It’s like a late Christmas/early birthday present.
January is all very NEW and I love that. For those of you who like losing sports teams (*cough* *Orioles* *cough*), you understand even more how I feel.
That anticipation and excitement over what could be, over what could happen, and the shedding of all the “bleck” from the previous year (or season).
I have high hopes for 2011 and it better not let me down or else (hah). I’m watching you, New Year.
