Happy New Year!

Can you believe it's 2007??? What an unreal number, not one I thought about much when I was a kid. By the way, how do you explain the New Year concept to an almost-six year old? She has the basic calendar idea down, knows her months, but I don't know how much she understands them. And to her, if it's a new year, then today must be her birthday!

Yesterday, Jason travelled back to Virginia and now we begin our 63 day separation. (But who's counting?) He'll finish out his last couple months with the Army, find out what the home inspector wants us to fix on our house, and, most likely, play lots of Playstation and Tug-of-War with Gracie while the stereo blasts through the house. Tomorrow, I sign Emma up at her new school, and next week, will begin the process of getting George into the special education system here. It's no fun being apart, but I think these couple of months will go fast.

My wild New Year's Eve celebrations? I fell asleep. No surprise there, we never bother staying up to watch the ball drop and listen to neighbors light firecrackers. My resolutions? I'm still working on those. I don't usually pay much attention to making resolutions, but I think I want to make at least one this year. This is going to be a crazy year, as Jason transitions jobs and we find a new house, etc. I want to resolve to RELAX!! Go with the flow. Bend with the wind. Take it one day at a time.

Yeah, it might happen.

Happy New Year to you all!

Happy New Year! I resolved to stay up until 10 minutes after midnight...I'm not sure why, all our guests left at 10. The new year comes whether we're up to see it or not :)

Happy New Year, Meg! I fell asleep on the couch waiting on the ball to drop with my kids (we let the eight year old stay up this year... and I'm paying for it now... what a grumpy head!!)

Good luck being able to relax. I always thought that was an antonym of the words mom and wife!!!=)
