. . . thank goodness.
It was a tough year; I'm very glad that it's nearly over. I hope that the coming year will be a better one! No resolutions for me; I intend to keep working on learning whatever I can, and doing my best to deal with whatever life sends me.
We're seeing the old year out with an appetizer dinner; I've been making nibbles all afternoon. It's a fun tradition that we all enjoy; everyone gets to eat exactly what they want to eat, one bite at a time. No "eat all your veggies," from me tonight!
And I'll actually encourage everyone to eat lots and lots of dessert.
