We spent the last few days enjoying a visit from Number One Son and his family, which includes our two delightful grandchildren. New Year’s Day meant a feast and festivities with them and also my younger sister and her family. Of course it was wonderful.
It was also a passage.
Next New Year’s we won’t be here. We’ll be in Mexico.
So, the passage to 2007 was a big one for us – one that makes us feel very excited. We’re like kids before a birthday, or graduation, or other big days…half sleepless and hyper and half overwhelmed with with the magnitude of the transition.
Everyone enjoyed their “recycled gifts” as I gave them things that had been in my household for years. I think this maybe made it easier for them to accept the reality of the upcoming changes.
Anyway, we are really looking forward to our move to Mexico in 2007!
