New Year's Day

I managed to have a good New Year's Eve day despite the circumstances. I went to a movie for the first time in ages. We visited with mom for awhile but then she asked us to leave. She set us free which meant we could leave without guilt. My sister, my nephew and I went out for dinner and had a fabulous time talking. Later, my sister and I watched a movie at home. My sister left and I fully intended to go to bed and sleep right through the New Year. The problem was that I couldn't go to sleep.

I watched a sappy movie and did laundry. I talked to Luisa on the phone a few times and wished so much that I was with her, the children, our close friends. They were all together and I was here, folding bras alone. Not that I usually need company to fold bras but, you know, company for bra folding on New Year's wouldn't be so bad. I believe this is the first time in my entire life that I have been completely alone when the clock struck twelve. I lived to tell the tale.

The New Year begins today. If 2007 sucks, I'm gonna be spittin' mad.
