For over two weeks I’ve contemplated a post detailing all the ways in which 2007 sucked worse than any other year in my reckoning, but something has held me back. I think it’s that we just did such a good job of ending the year right after all that I don’t want to dwell on the bad. We had a genuinely happy Christmas Day (without going to my sister’s). We spent much of it at home doing nothing but enjoying each other and our gifts. After Christmas, Vanessa and I spent a relaxing 3 days at a charming B&B in Michigan. New Year’s Eve just the two of us spent watching Fried Green Tomatoes and enjoying a homemade antipasta platter and good coffee made in Vanessa’s new coffee press. I knit 2/3rds of Starsky in the month of December. We decompressed like nobody’s business. I feel ready for 2008 and all the promise it holds.
