Happy New Year!

Thank you all for stopping by this here blog in 2007. I appreciate all of your support, and the friendships that have been established through this endeavor. Best wishes in the new year!

My only resolution this year is to give up the dc. Or get to a "normal" level of consumption (Oh, all there is to drink is Diet Coke, versus ohmygod - where is the Diet COKE!?!) That is, after tonight and making it through this insanity

After 32 years living in southern California, I decided to brave the elements and the masses to stay overnight and see the parade. I am very scared of having a breakdown at 3:00 in the a.m. when I find it impossible to get any rest, and/or get my core body temperature up. Drink a toasty drink in my honor tonight! See you in 2008!!

OMG, I am soooo jealous. Did Charles get to you? He suggested to get a spot at the end of the parade route. He doesn't even go until 8:30! Someday I'll do this. The parade is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Happy New Year Jen!

I am giving up the DC too. Well, at least trying not to drink 6 cans a day anymore. I have done well so far. Just one yesterday and one today. It is rough. Good luck to you!
