We observed the Japanese custom of eating long noodles to ensure longevity (both girls love ramen so this seemed like a fun dinner)
Played some Guitar Hero
And got dressed up to usher in the New Year
(the hat is my dress-up costume, the mismatched plaid is just my pajamas. I like to be comfortable when I party)
2009 is almost here, I'm looking forward to what it might bring. I'd like to start biking again, maybe with a new bike. It has the potential to be a strange year as well--2009 will be the year I've outlived my mother, who died when she was 42. My 42nd birthday is next week. I'm still mulling over how I feel about the whole thing and mostly it just feels odd. But I'm ready to explore what lies ahead--Happy New Year, everyone!
