New Year's Eve

I predicted that I’d be asleep by 10 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, but I bought some champagne to toast with before bed. I didn’t remember I had it until about 9:45, so we sat down to have a glass and talk about our resolutions for the year.

One glass led to a second, and before we knew it, the clock said 11:45!

NYE Still Life

Right about that time, Joe woke up crying with some teething pain. So we all ended up in the living room, watching Dick Clark as the ball dropped.

Here are some of the resolutions we came up with:

  1. Read more.
  2. Watch less TV.
  3. Travel more, even if it’s just a day trip to another town and back.
  4. Have more fun with Joe.
  5. Get more exercise.

We also spent some time talking about how different Joe will be this time next year. On the one hand, I’m eager to see the little boy he will become. On the other hand, I want him to stay as little and sweet as he is now!
