8697 - Hap-Pye New(t) Year! 2007

Something I post at the top of every new year, and I appreciate the words more with every additional trip around the sun.

Love is
is not rude,
it is not self seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices in truth.
It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes,
always perseveres.

-1 Corinthians 13:5&6



Newt didn't make it to the countdown, apparently.

The boys like to wrestle, which worries BHK a smidgen, but I think they'll be jim-dandy.

618 entries this year... lower content this time around, mostly due to my living life, and not having much time to report it. I haven't had any time recently to read much LJ at all, though I have tried to poke a nose in here and there when I could. (975 in 2006, 716 in 2004) - one of my new years thoughts is to try to write at least 30 minutes a day in the journal, just to hone my skills.

We move into the bigger house on or about 1/15... once all the utilities and such have been activated. The big TV and some small amount of furniture is already over there, but we haven't begun the big move in earnest as yet.

I'm going to miss our Tannenbaum... I've enjoyed the giant beastie in the living room the last month or so. When it goes, I figure it means we'll be headed to the new place shortly thereafter.

Danny turns 45 tomorrow. weird thought. That means I'll be 38 a month from then. The years seem to just fly.

Last night, we got together with the normal motley crew to dine on tacos, rodeo beans, assorted fixins and far too many holiday pastry-type goodies. We watched "Failure to Launch" until about 10 seconds of midnight, counted down, and then watched fireworks over the Chesapeake bay. After, we started to watch Prime, but got tuckered out due to it's general suckitude. Chick flicks were remedied by today's viewing of Buckaroo Bonzai, Kung Fu Hustle and Fierce Creatures
