I know I should put my siggy tag at the end of my entry, but I like this one so much and appreciate so much the giver that I want it here, right on top.
We have under 6 hours to midnight here on the west coast. I am sure that I won't make it to midnight. My eyes are already drooping. The girls have asked to stay up. We said yes. We said go outside and bang on pots & pans, ask Hank for his foghorn, enjoy ringing in 2007. Last time I stayed up till midnight was to bring in the new century. We banged on pots and pans, let the kids do it too. All 18 of them. Mexico was very noisy then. Lots of guns in town. We lived on the beach then.
It's been a stressful day for me. I had a couple of conversations I was concerned about having. I can't talk about it just yet, but will when the time is right. I feel good about it now that it's done.
Rob is sick. I think he's got the flu. He didn't get the shot. I am truly grateful that I did. I can tend to him without worrying about getting as sick as he has. I feel bad for him . . . he's freezing . . . he's roasting. It was a beautiful sunny day here, yet he froze most of the day. Best I can do is hang in there with him until its over.
I've thought about so many of you today as I visited your journals, prayed for you while stopping there. I am sorry for not commenting today or for some time. I try, resolve not to lurk but that's just what I do. I'm here, guys. Really I am. I love you all so much. You have been a rock for me over this past year. It's been a tough one, though filled with much love and joy as well. I won't resolve to do better. I'll make it a goal. If I fail then I will start over until I succeed.
As always, you are in my prayers and thoughts and may you:
