HAPPY NEW YEAR!

1 01 2007

It’s almost midnight on December 31, just wanted to wish everyone a happy new year. We were drinking some nice red wine from 1997 and playing Apples to Apples with the kids (and Favorite Daughter’s boyfriend) at home, and now we’re watching a DVD movie he brought, Hithchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. There’s a big open celebration with fireworks downtown on the plaza by the Capitol, first year ever, but it’s been pouring rain for hours and no way any of us will be going out in this. Still getting used to this boyfriend thing, but I have to say I’d rather have them here than out on the road, and I’m doing better than her dad!

HAPPYY NEW YEAR ALL! 🙂
