I brought in the new year by making money. Seems like a good omen, and seems like something I would do.
What made it more awesome, however, was that the twins' mom invited V to come with me, and bought us cake and crackers and champagne to celebrate. So we played with the twins, had a sweet time putting them to bed, and then curled up on the couch, snacked, and kissed at New Year's. And then got a check.
Welcome to what I think will be a very good year, everyone.
