Late last week we decided to have some folks over for New Year’s Eve. Mostly we didn’t want to have to take Bella anywhere so we asked friends to come hang out with us. I didn’t want to make too much out of it. If I called it a party I’d have to, like, do stuff to get ready. This was all about just hanging out, so Christina dubbed it a New Year’s Eve Thing. (I did clean the kitchen and vacuum the carpet. My guests always wind up in the kitchen and on the carpet.)
So we had a New Year’s Eve Thing complete with bubbly and the ball drop. We made quite a ruckus at midnight and woke up Bella, so she wound up hanging out with us. We tried to ignore her and let her cry it out, but there was no way she was going back to sleep. People! Must say hello! Can’t miss anything!
Today is going to be a quiet day with naps, Guinness Pie and knitting. We don’t have any groundbreaking resolutions to post or anything—just warm wishes to everyone for a happy and healthy 2008.
