It’s New Year’s Eve and it just struck me that this is the first time I’ll be away from LA for New Year’s. I can’t remember the last time I spent this day with my family, but I usually surrounded myself with loved ones, nonetheless. Thus far, it seems I’ll be spending New Year’s Eve at home with Nancy. Ricky is in LA and David will be slaving away at KRON4 until at least 11 p.m. David hopes to be home by midnight for that customary New Year’s kiss, but we’re not counting on it.
This all makes for a pretty tame evening, but I don’t mind. People hound me to go out and act my age, but I truly value the relaxation of a peaceful night in. Especially when I’m paying rent and can’t afford much else.
But I digress. If anyone is looking for me this evening, I will be in front of our big TV, watching the NYE’s festivities while piecing together the Star Wars Battle of Endor Lego set that David gave me for Christmas.
So as we all prepare for the new year, I hope you’re all surrounded by the people you love, and those who love you just as much in return. I hope you’re all looking forward to the new adventures that 2010 will bring, and reminiscing on the wisdom gained from 2009.
We will double the number of times we laugh together.
