Like New York-New York, right?
Best wishes for a Happy New Year to all of you.
These holidays at the start of the week throw off my internal clock because of all the football watching. We are in college bowl marathon mode, and with all the channel switching and commercial muting it's hard for me to keep track of which teams are outstanding, so my focus is a play at a time, hoping for something interesting to happen, like an interception or fumble or game ejection-worthy penalty. College football is more exciting in some ways than Pro football because the players aren't as polished so make more mistakes.
I've got some projects to get out of the way, have to tear myself away from the gas fire to get started on them because our winter goal seems to be to get through the whole winter without firing up the forced air furnace. We haven't discussed it, but that seems to be what's going on. The house is around 55 degrees most of the time. I get by with lots of layers and an electric mattress pad.
This wasn't my favorite Christmas by a long shot, so I'll work on making the next one better somehow. Heck, that goes for the whole year - thinking about what I can do to make it better than last year on the personal satisfaction scale.
