Easing into 2007



Here's the thing about the Otis clan. We're easily bored. Some of us have short attention spans. The rest crave adrenaline and juice. It's the way we are. So, how are we celebrating the beginning of 2007?

1. Get home from a one-week family holiday trip. Pick up dog from kennel. Do a lot of shopping.

2. Next day: Host a New Year's Eve party (and going away party for Uncle Ted) for a couple dozen folks.

3. Next day: Unpack from Missouri trip, clean the house, and prepare for arrival of family (note: much of the cleaning happened while I was at a poker tournament--thanks, hon).

4. Arrival of family/baby and dog sitters. Pack for next trip.

5. Next day: Leave for 10-day Bahamas trip (it's a work trip, so don't get all bitchy on me).

6. Get home from Bahamas, unpack, and re-pack for another four-day-trip.

7. Figure out where January went.

That said, I have high hopes for this year. Looking back, my moods, karma, and luck tend to run in 400-day cycles, so I think I'm at the beginning of a year that could be a good one. I've certainly set myself up for it. Now it's just time for it to happen.

Regardless, New Year's Eve was great and well-spent with some fantastic people. Plus, sharing a kiss with my best of friends at midnight...well, there ain't much topping that one.

With thanks to T for the photo at the top.

So does G-Rob use tongue?

And I gotta believe that Badblood curses under his breath and sets goals for next year?

Ahh, making myself laugh. I love it. Happy New Year to you and yours Otis!

Despite being for work... the Bahamas are not a bad way to start the year.

Oh...seeing that picture hurt. My crush on Mrs. Otis and my vote for hottest Blogger wife still roles with her...although, there are many close seconds.
