Happy New Year!

Well, it's 2007!
I can't believe I'm actually awake this early (10) when I stayed up until one last night!

I'm afraid I can't think of anything too spectacular that happened last year, but then it doesn't even seem like it could have been a year already!

And speaking of un-spectacular, at midnight last night, yes exactly at midnight, I was kneeling on the floor with a washcloth in one hand and carpet-cleaner in the other, because for some annoying reason, known only to her, one of my cats decided to pick that time to upchuck a hairball...
*sigh* Happy new year to you too! Ugh.
I think it may have been a sort of chain reaction: we were watching something on TV, and there were people playing bluegrass music, which got Gracie racing around the house (I don't think she liked the sound), and then she started fighting with Petunia, which is probably why Petunia was feeling a little queasy.
And of course, right after that it was midnight, and people somewhere in our neighborhood started shooting...they don't seem to go in for fireworks around here, just gunshot.

Anyway, that was my very un-spectacular New Year's Eve...maybe next year will be better...

Happy New Year! And enjoy 2007! I have to try to remember to write '07, not '06... :)

This brought me much laughter and smiles! THANKS... Gunshots, huh? I thought you would be too close to the city for gunshots. CRAZINESS!

Hee-hee! I'm glad you liked that!
Yep, gunshots...we're far enough out on the edge of the city I guess! :)
