We woke up one morning and, lo and behold, it was 2006 already!
Mae and I pretty much slept right through the turn of the year this time around. We didn't stay up for fireworks. We didn't drink wine and eat cheese. Or run through an endless chorus of "Auld Lang Syne". Or do whatever else people do to usher in the new year. Instead, we slept.
Yup, our new year celebrations have been the same for the last few years. Fact is, after we turned 30, there was only so much we could do without feeling the ravages of time on our bones. Compounded to the fact that Mae and I are neither athletic nor healthy in our lifestyle, we just burn out pretty quickly these days. Yes, the wild party animal inside of me has been laid to rest for awhile now.
So what's the big deal about yet another new year? It's just a marker that we're another year closer to the grave. Hahah. So, no thanks, we're not celebrating the new year. We will, however, celebrate the close of another year. After all, surviving yet another year unscathed must surely be reason to celebrate.
So, happy new year, people. Glad you made it. :)
