Another year is underway. As is our wont, Susan and I stayed home and did nothing exceptional; since I don't drink, don't enjoy overly loud music that I haven't personally selected, and don't care for fireworks, I'm out of touch with the rest of the world and their way of welcoming in another year.
While 2008 has been a challenging year for many, it's been a good year for me. No family member died, no family member suffered a debilitating illness, our cats were healthy and happy, and Susan and I finished up 2009 not too much the worse for wear. Ultimately, you can't ask for much more than that!
