Happy New Year's

I suppose I should say something about the New Year, even though Ben and I have been party poopers about it. We went to bed- exhausted- at 9:30 after a full day of traveling on New Year's Eve, and neither of us has really put much thought into it being a new year. My thoughts are pretty much summed up in this quote:

Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on,
with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
-Hal Borland

It doesn't seem to me that all of a sudden everything is going to change or be different just because the calendar changed. Life continues to go on, we just get older. I suppose I have made one big "resolution" for this year- to get our food storage. But even that started in 2009 and is just continuing on into 2010. Resolutions are funny to me. Why do they have to be at the beginning of the year, and only once a year? I think goals should be a continual process- not a one time deal. So, I guess I am a party pooper. But, nevertheless, I do wish you all a wonderful, happy new year with many happy suprises!

  1. Yah, I actually find New Year's to be kind of a bummer because 1) it marks the passage of time and 2) it is a reminder of all the things I said I was going to do in the previous year and didn't actually do.
