All right, I realize that my posts are making me sound like Debbie Downer, and while, yes, I do tend to have a strong streak of the melancholy in me, I’d like to think that I’m mostly a positive person. So I’m going to write about something positive.

I have a new nephew! Colin Matthew was born January 3, weighing in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces and 19 ½ inches long. He came quickly so there was no time for drugs (my sister-in-law is my hero). I can’t wait to visit him and big brother Caleb. My brother is well on his way to having his own soccer team.

The other exciting news is that my new dining room furniture is being delivered tomorrow. No, seriously, you have no idea how exciting this is. I was convinced I would die an old woman with that hand-me-down table and chairs (they actually have “1973” stamped underneath them). Our new set was the floor sample so I got a mission-style table, 6 chairs, buffet and hutch for what a buffet from Pottery Barn costs. A good deal to be sure.

See? I can be happy!
