A New Day, A New Year

It took a lot to stay awake until midnight last night. But how can you go to bed when the new year is just around the corner.

Well, midnight finally arrived, with a second added on before the clock struck 12., something to do with the earth going round the sun, or something like that. A few fireworks later, and we were headed for bed.

Warm and comfortable, we were just dozing off, when we were woken by the late setting off of more fireworks. Although we weren't in a deep sleep at the time, it wasn't far off. If it wasn't for the fact that work required an early start today, this wouldn't have been a problem. The fireworks had started our dogs off, and they then barked for the next few minutes. The joys of New Year.

Well, we got through last night, we've struggled through today, and we look forward to this year. It can only get better, or should I say, it can only be better than the last few.

Thanks Donna. Yes, the fireworks have stopped, I think, lol. Or else I'm still asleep and can't hear them. haha

Good for you to have been able to stay up. Many a year we have cashed in early. I can just see the dogs a howling to help bring in the New Year, Be glad they didn't climb in the bed with you too. Be blessed with everything the Good Lord has for you and your family in 2009.
