Happy New Year! I write this from the house of Steve and Renae in Iowa, where a group of us has gathered to spend the holiday together. We watched the tape of the ball dropping in New York, one hour after it actually happened, and enjoyed champagne and phone calls. All in all, it was a very nice New Year celebration, followed by drinking games and heavy sleep.
We got up this morning, cleaned up last night's mess, and watched some football. After an amazing fit of Iowa football from Orlando, we turned on ELF, a Christmas present Renae received, and I promptly fell asleep on their generously huge couch.
Now, we're contemplating getting some Chinese food. I'll fill you in when more happens, this year.
