Happy New Year!

Its a new year now and hopefully it will be even better than the last! 2008 had its problems FOR SURE, but Tom and I have been fortunate and we feel very blessed to have our health, jobs and friends and family all in tact.

Last night we opted out of the Times Square New Years (actually, we never planned on it but many people we talk to outside of this area assume that of course we'd go. Yes, we are movers and shakers, but NO THANKS in Times Square. Seriously). It was below 0 with the wind-chill and those people we watched on tv looked COLD.

We were invited to celebrate with our neighbors Marc and Donna. They had us and our friends Frank and Patti over and I am not going to say that we DID Karaoke, but I am not saying we didn't... :-) (one song).
Donna made gourmet munchies and Marc was the bartender! It was a great night. They live just up the street from us so we chose to walk to their house. Bad idea. It was so cold!! The kind of cold where your ears, skinny little things that they are, begin to hurt so bad you begin to think there are actual needles pricking them. Brrrr.

We managed to fight off the temptation to nod off and proudly stayed up to ring in 2009 with streamers and the like! Today we spent the first day of this new year getting our house back to its pre-Christmas state. There are now zero Christmas decorations to be seen and its hard to believe actually that the Christmas season is gone already.

Back to work tomorrow. Happy New Year everyone! Make your resolutions, be safe and may you have nothing but success in 2009 regardless of your ventures.

Take care. Di and Tom
