Wow! We only have a couple of days left in 2011. It's hard to believe another year has come and (almost) gone. Personally, I hate to see it go -- I didn't have a problem with 2011, did you?
I've been thinking about all the years I've seen come and go. Each of them was good. Some were actually great. I can't really remember any years that were only so-so. Come to think of it, I don't think I ever lived in a year that I wished was over. It's just like what Forrest Gump said in the movie. "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
I believe I've touched on what excites me about another new year -- the surprise of it all. Of course, it would be nice to have a crystal ball. In 2012, will I sell five million books? Will I finally be rich and famous? I'll just have to wait and see ...
So, come Saturday night, I'll pour myself and Robert a glass of bubbly to greet another new year ... too bad we'll probably be asleep on the couch by the time midnight arrives.
Happy New Year!
