Here's to new beginnings. We can use all of those we can get.
New Year's deserves to be more of a big deal than it turns out to be around our house. I can't seem to work up any enthusiasm among the troops, probably because there are no presents involved. If I didn't demand we observe the kiss, the toast, and the ball-drop in Time's Square, everyone would just go to bed early. This year I made it home from work just in time for the kiss/toast/ball-drop thing. And that was pretty much it.
New Year's at Times Square is on the list of Things I Want To Do Before I Die. So is seeing the sunrise from the Great Wall of China. And who knows? It is a new year, after all. Anything could happen.
