As I write this, we’re in the dying hours of 2007. I’m trying to think of something pithy to write, some witty and astute observations, some phrase to sum up the year. I’m not having a lot of luck.
2007 was a good year for our family, but I’m hard-pressed to come up with any defining moments. This is not a bad thing. Life-altering events can really upset the old apple cart. I am not someone who likes an upset apple cart. I like knowing what I will have for breakfast tomorrow, what I will be doing at 6:30pm on Wednesday evening, and who will be home for dinner. So an uneventful year, spent with the people I love most, well that’s just fine by me. Daily life with Hannah and Jon and Dorothy the Crazy Cat is eventful enough all on its own, thank you.
Here’s to uneventful years. And to seeing what 2008 has in store for us all. May it be another good year, spent with those we care about.
Now I’m off for a very uneventful New Year’s celebration. Jon and I will sit on the couch and watch the ball drop (although, really, it’s already down), and maybe drink some ginger ale. Because that’s just how we suburbanites with small kids roll, yo. Happy New Year!
