I was really hoping I'd start the new year off with more of a bang, but Jack and I have colds and we feel like crap. We've both had runny noses and a cough for a couple of days now, but still no fever so I have no idea what's actually going on with us. Dennis and I always spend New Year's Eve with our friends Roger & Liz and we pop a ton of fireworks and then lounge in the hot tub. I barely made it to midnight this year and didn't even get in the hot tub. I meant to get a picture of the fireworks finale we did at midnight, but I was too focused on going to bed. I also didn't get any pictures at 1:30 am, 2:45 am, 3:50 am, or 5 am when Jack kept waking up because he felt so bad. It was a long night.

I made it about 15 minutes into the movie before I passed out from exhaustion. No pics of Jack's midnight, 1:15 am, 2:30 am, 3 am, 3:30 am, 4:45 am, or 5:30 am wakings. Poor baby. I wish there was more I could do for him.
This definitely isn't how I would've wanted to ring in the new year, but a rocky beginning to the year doesn't have to mean the whole year is going to be crap. Being sick is one thing, but the leaky ceiling is another. I really want to gut that bathroom down to the studs and start all over, but I want to do that in our time and on our budget. We'll see how that all works out.
How was your new year? Better than mine, I hope!
