We rang in the new year at home. The weather made us change our plans this year; freezing rain, sleet, and snow. It just wasn't worth the risk traveling in this weather especially with the holiday drunks on the road. We were disappointed to miss meeting up with friends but there will be plenty of times to get together in the coming year.
We had dinner at home then bundled up to go out for our evening walk. Actually it was more like 3 miles of skating and slip-sliding along. We must be crazy to go out trudging around in this weather but I definitely feel better afterwards. At midnight we popped the cork on a bottle of champange, drank, kissed and then A went to lay down because her back was aching and I washed a dirty dog butt. What can I say, we get more wild every year. They say what you do on new year's is what you do all year and I certainly hope dirty dog butt is not a sign of times to come. Kissing A and champange...yeah as difficult as it is, I might be able to handle another year of that.
No resolutions either. This year I only endeavor to enjoy life and live for myself and my home family. I've been working to cut down on the un-necessary stress both external and internal. I'm coming to terms with the reality of my parents. I'm thankful for the all the positve and wonderful things in my life. As I read back over this it really does sound like resolutions, don't you think? These have been on-going things though and I'm not just starting today.
Whatever! Fine, just call these are my no resolutions resolutions.
