Happy New Year!

I went to bed early last night, around 9-ish. I figured that the new year had plenty of chaparones to usher it in without my help. Plus I was tired. Plus I had to get up at OhGawd O'Clock to go to work this morning.
I watched a little TV, and then fell into a nice comfy, warm, dreamy sleep. At straight up 11:58 the neighbors let off a few M-80's. At 11:59 they let off a few more. (You know, just in case someone didn't hear the first ones) At midnight the floodgates of boomers opened. I am so glad that I let others usher in this brand new year!
But you know? I woke up a half hour before my alarm. I feel rested, and ready to tackle my day. I will probably fall asleep at work. I don't know many people who are going to be coming in to buy new hammers to build things today. Correct me if I am wrong, but the pounding of hammers on New Years Day? Not something I think is a good mix. Nor that neat sound you get when you turn on a drill. Hardware is noisy, I am thinking there should be lots of quiet going on today.
I hope your day is wonderful!

I agree - I don't think you will be selling many hammers today!

Happy new Year to you and yours!

Sounds like you had a good Christmas, how great that your daughters pulled together like that. Sorry your plan to usher in the New Year was a bit interrupted on the sleep end, hopefully they didn't continue with the fireworks to much after midnight. As to noisy work around the house today, I think most households were keeping it fairly quiet. Hope your day at work went well. Happy New Year, I hope 2010 is a great one for you.

Never thought about it they way you pointed it out.....I bet there was very little work going on that day. From either your end or the publics! I actually chuckled out loud with those thoughts.
