today is the day to break out my new "fold a day" origami calendar. this was a christmas present from mike, and i have been patiently waiting for the new year to break it out.
last night we rang in the new year in low-key style over at doug and karen's house, watching football and hanging out. i had a celebratory bottle of cream soda and a pizzelle or two. at midnight we broke out a bottle of sparkling grape juice and clinked in 2009 with our silly glasses on. today i'm working on my list for the new year, including packing my hospital bag, getting things for ninja (bedding, clothing) washed and put away, and finding homes for all the new toys we got for christmas.
