Hello 2012

I know that New Year's Eve was two nights ago, but to me tonight feels more like the end of the old year and the start of something new. On the eve of going back to work after a long vacation, I find myself making lots of resolutions and invisioning a whole new start. It seems the time to evaluate, so here goes. On this the last day of the old I find:

  • There's finally snow on the ground (please let this be a sign of lots of snow days but not a late spring!)
  • My house is an absolute catastophe. And I've tried cleaning just about every day.
  • I have absolutely nothing to wear tomorrow.
  • There are precisely two Christmas cookies left and I consider it my duty to eat them tonight before the resolutions kick in.
  • All the work I said I would do over my vacation has not been miraculously done by elvesas I originally thought it would be. (That may have been a bit naive.)
  • I just discovered that my Christmas shopping is not done.

When I told Maddie I was going back to work tomorrow, she said, "Yea!" I'm trying not to be insulted (she followed that by "Grandma's House!" which hey, I'd be excited about too.)Well, tomorrow is a new day. So I guess there's nothing like a fresh start with no mistakes.
