the new year was brought in with fire, friends and rounds of trouble, not the ooh-you-are-gonna-be-in-so-much-trouble, but in the miltonbradley sort. i don't think that i have stayed up until 6 am in years and that was the first for the womanchild, too.
this year, i can't bring myself to make any resolution, except for one. okay, two. i want to maintain my 4.0 for this next year, too.
a year ago, i had no idea that i was to apply for graduate school, contemplate picking up and moving, actually doing just that, rehoming us and digging deep again. do we really want to know what is ahead of us? maybe, being fed slivers of an apple from a knife is easier to digest than the whole shinysweet apple at once.
the weather is insanely wonderful today. we have already done the vet appointment for dmitri, cleaned the chicken coop, washed and folded clothes (hot out of the dryer which is a first in maybe a year!) and thinking about taking the tree down.
this year is gonna be so bright that we will need shades or just more tinsel to throw on the glitterflame. happy new year!
