Happy New Year, I Hope

What’s new, besides the year? Here, we had snow on the last day of 2003 and again on the first day of 2004. Henry made snow angels yesterday; he’d seen the characters on Oswald doing this and had to try it himself!

We took down the Christmas tree, a fine New Year’s Day tradition. We’ve been enjoying Christmas gifts received, especially playing with Henry and his new toys.

We’ve been mulling over the future, the state of the world, and changes we want to make in our lives. (For me, the usual: spend more time with family and friends, travel more, lose weight, ride my bike.) I’ll turn 36 this year, and somehow that seems more shocking than turning 35 was. I haven’t lived enough in those 36 years. I’ve gotta do more.
