Happy 2008



Happy New Year! What did you do on the first day of 2008?

I woke up early, a bit disoriented. What day is it? Oh yes — the first day of a brand spanking new year. And I had plans… big plans.

I was going to get to the gym by 9am, then jump in a Zipcar and buy groceries, budget for 2008, replace the black gloves and scarf I left in Massachusetts over Christmas, do five loads of laundry, clean the kitchen, set up a blog for my brother, and read through all my email.

But one look outside and I decided to burrow into my white down comforter and read one more chapter of The Third Secret. Ten chapters later, I put on the tea kettle and after a quick scan of the cupboards, convinced myself to put off that trip to social Safeway.

Naughty girl that I am, I almost talked myself out of doing laundry too. But three loads later, I was still reclined on the couch reading Steve Berry’s thriller.

I phoned some friends, left messages with family, and finally let go of my well laid plans and vegged out to the last six episodes of Battlestar Galactica Season3.

In all, a most comfortable start to the new year.

  1. That sounds like a LOVELY way to start the new year!

  2. So you go to Fitness First, huh? I go to their Alexandria location. Since I moved to Old Town it’s not quite as conveniently located as it was before, but their location in DC is over a mile from my workplace — so even though I like walking, it would be a lot of back-and-forth.

  3. Sounds like a great day to kick off 2008! I’ve heard really good things about Zipcar, actually.
