Happy New Year!!!

It was an uneventful evening. I managed to stay awake until midnight, but just barely, when my honey came upstairs to say Happy New Year and give me a smooch. I wasn't feeling super good so I went to bed around 10:30 and chilled until that ball dropped. Just in time for the heartburn to kick up. So I had some toast and Zantac, then off to bed.

In honor of the new year, I stole this from Whoorl.....
