I woke up today with an unusual sense of excitement about the start of a new year. But then I realized that might not be excitement I'm experiencing but perhaps it's simply the feeling of not being hungover on January 1st. Regardless, I woke up refreshed. The benefits of not going out last night just keep on coming in. I think I've found a new tradition for myself!
Anyway, we've been celebrating the first day of the year by doing a lot of playing in the snow. The park was absolutely packed with children and their sleds, and dogs and their snow boots. Harlow saw that the playground area was free of any children so naturally that's right where he ran. We played on the slides and ran through the jungle gym until both of us were absolutely soaked in snow. Chris looked at us like we were insane. And that's okay because we are.
Resolution #27: make more friends that aren't dogs. This is going to be a hard one.
Now we're cozied up on the couch watching the Huskers play the Georgia Bulldogs. Tree will have to come down tomorrow. Or maybe the next day, I'm in no hurry.
Happy 2014, everyone. I've got a good feeling about this year.
