Happy New Year, everybody! Let's give this tired old year a decent burial, and start fresh. Passing the popcorn and champagne.
What's something that was good about 2012?
Is there something you are looking forward to in 2013? I'm not asking for resolutions, since mine are generally broken within hours -- but if that is your cup of tea, do share!
I'm pleased that I got 2 giant projects done this past year, that my big election issue made progress (even if we lost), and that now I have not smoked for 13 weeks (which I pretty much viewed as impossible, even though I didn't like being one of those people who scurries out to a secret location during good times and bad).
In 2013, will finish one more giant project (that I know of, so far); we will do some long-delayed work on the house; and my husband wants to take me on a real vacation! We'll see how all that works out. Crossing fingers that my daughter finds work soon.
Right now, I'm preparing for the major work-a-thon. Some important stuff got lost in translation; must recover it. Updating virus software on the laptop. We'll celebrate the new year in a convenient time zone. Tomorrow, the Christmas stuff will go back to storage.
Regular whines and anti-whines welcome, too!
Meanwhile -- Liz has set up the Wednesday Book Club! We'll start by asking everyone for one book suggestion -- a favorite piece of fiction that you want to share, available in paperback so everyone can get them easily -- and then we'll work out some kind of schedule.
It is fine to invite folks to join the Book Club! But lets keep the whines over here and private. OK?
