So, it's 8:37 am right now, as I type this post, on December 31, 2008. The last day of the year! =)
I have always liked New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Watching the ball in Times Square drop on TV; drinking champagne or eggnog; eating rumballs (a total family tradition); sometimes getting to see family or friends. It's a great holiday.
This year, Chris and I have been sadly remiss in making any holiday plans (this is what happens when I leave it to him to make the plans), so unless our one friend comes through about dinner tonight, it's just the two of us and Zoe. But that's ok, cause we'll go out to a movie and get Chinese food for dinner, and then come home and make brownies and watch the ball drop on TV and be happy together. Life is very good sometimes. =)
There's been that "happy meme" going around on people's blogs lately, and I've been tempted to do it. But I thought, what I really wanted to do was name the thing in 2008 that made *me* the most happy, and then I wanted to hear from all of you guys, even if it's something silly!
So for me, here it is:
The happiest thing for me in 2008 has been having a great holiday season. Going to Christmas with Chris' family, and my family's annual Hanukkah party, and feeling loved and happy and enjoying myself at both. A close second is my new bookcases. =)
Your turn now! What was the happiest thing for you in 2008? Leave it in the comments!
