Farewell and Good Riddance

Today is the last day of 2007.

Thank God.

Yesterday, I was watching CBS Sunday Morning as they did their annual memorial to those who passed on this year. (Didn’t they use to dedicate an entire show to this? Now it’s barely fifteen minutes!) This piece almost always makes me slightly teary, but I was doing okay until Charles Osgood mentioned the World War II vets who passed this year and I realized that included my dad. I lost it. At that point I stopped watching and veered off into my own personal list of losses for 2007: my dad, my cousin John, my kitty Samantha

It’s been a really crappy year.

2006 was crappy, too. I think I’m due for a good one. So I’m saying a big ADIOS to the year(s) just past and I’m opening my arms wide to embrace the New Year. That doesn’t mean I’m going out partying. I’m too old for that. I’d have to stay up way past my bedtime. No, I’m just preparing myself mentally for new projects. I hope to clear a few things from my desk today and then take in a movie with Hubby this afternoon. If I play my cards right, maybe he’ll buy me dinner.

If you’re going out to celebrate tonight, don’t drink and drive. An emergency room is not a good place to start the New Year.

Have a good one, folks!
