Happy New Year

Alas and good golly, here we are at the beginning of another new year.  My household will enter it much like we’ve entered previous ones – run ragged from festivities; at once welcoming and dreading a return to regular schedules; and stunned by the number of incorrectly addressed Christmas cards returning to our mailbox.  

There’s plenty of good in the way we’ll welcome 2019, though, too.  The sustenance we got from reconnecting with each other, extended family, and friends will carry us a long way in the coming year.  Santa got lots right and not too much wrong.  The pups didn’t eat half the number of ornaments they did last year; we mark this as maturational progress.  And, personally, I think I’m getting better at making meaningful resolutions; I mark this as maturational progress.

All best wishes to you and yours for a very happy, very healthy 2019.
