I don’t know about you, but I am very happy it is 2007. Last year was one of the worst that I ever had – and I am looking forward to moving on.
I had a strange feeling last night – yesterday was the last day in the final year of my mother’s life – I don’t know why I started to think that way, but I did. There was a sadness that she would never know 2007, but after what she went through in 2006, I know she is in a much better place
I got a chance to see some movies over holidays – I saw the movie "The Holiday" -which I really enjoyed. Jack Black, who I never really cared for, did a phenomenal in job in a romantic comedy – if you can believe that. I saw "Night in the Museum" and although it is raking it in at the box office, I found it to be pretty predictable and mundance. Today I saw "Dream Girls" and although I felt the screen play was weak, the vocal performances were very impressive.
Nick and I welcomed in the New Year last night by having a steak and lobster dinner at home and just relaxing. I did a lot of relaxing over the holidays, and it really helped me. I am facing the new year with some renewed enthusiasm.
Saying goodbye to the holidays is always hard for me. I just love the holiday season, and there seems to be an emptiness when it is gone. I usually keep my tree up until the middle of January. This holiday was not as bad as I thought it would be – I do believe that there was an angel up in heaven who saw to it that there was still joy and magic around Christmas. Thanks, Mom – I am grateful for that.
So, happy new year everyone. The best to one and all in 2007!
