So here is the deal, let’s face it 34 you kind of sucked! Not all of you, but a fair share of you did. I mean it took 6 months to diagnose The Chaz issues, then another month to recover once The Chaz was removed. Add a really long 2 month bout with bronchitis, I have not felt well for 3/4 of this year. I spent more in medical bills than I did on college, and let us be clear I spent a ridiculous amount of money on college this year. So 34 I am not sad to see you go away; you were not my favorite year. Now, before I send you away in tears, I really did have some great things happen this year too … my first trip to Europe was pretty amazing. Seriously can a year be totally bad if it includes a trip to Italy and France? I submit to you that it cannot!! Of course I also went to Spain and I did not like Spain; but I digress. I am now the very proud godmother to an adorable little boy. My 3 nieces and 1 nephew are amazingly healthy and still seriously adorable. Mom is still in remission and really can I ask for more? The rest of the family is doing relatively well; I mean for the first time in a long time everyone FINALLY is employed!! So not all bad of a year. I was able to play onstage again which I loved! I took my first ballet class which was amazing. I was able to see many great theater productions, which to me is the breath of life sometimes. I bought a house and one day I may even actually live in it. I just directed an outrageously funny play. So I guess 34 you did have some redeeming moments.
35, here is the deal, I have great hopes that you will be nicer to me than 34 was. Really can a year that starts playing in Disneyland be all bad? I submit to you that it cannot. Sure last year was Italy, but DL has It’s a Small World and I am sure I can catch a glimpse of Italy there. We get to have a new friend join our family in 5 months or so, and we all know I love new friends in my family. So here is what I would like from you 35: I would like to be able to replace the savings I spent on medical bills and school in 34, I would like Mom to remain in remission, I would like to keep all of my organs inside and functioning, and I would like our family to have a relatively easy go of it this year. I know that is a lot to ask, but it is what I would like for my birthday. Oh and world peace. Too much to ask?
