We spent the day hanging out at the house, mostly watching The Gilmore Girls. We went to bed at 10:00 and ended up staying awake talking until after midnight. We were there, in the dark, whispering so as not to wake the baby, and saying… woo hoo! as we heard the fireworks go off somewhere in town. It was nice. Us, together, quietly ringing in the new year together. No better way to do it actually.
We also happened to be awake the next morning at 8:00 am Lancaster time, which was midnight back home in Scappoose/Portland. We were able to say another quiet woo hoo, still together. Nice. Two celebrations in an 8 hour period, pretty good.
As for resolutions… personally I told Karen I want to be kinder. Just kinder in general. I know I’m pretty kind as it is, but I told Karen there’s always room for improvement in the kindness department and definitely always room for more kindness in the world.
