I managed not to put an eye out when I opened my bottle of champagne. I tired to drink the whole bottle over the course of six hours, but there was too much for one person, so I ended up dumping two glasses worth down the drain. I tuned in to watch the ball drop on TV; I actually went to Times Square one New Year's Eve with some college chums one year. It was a wild and crazy time! Did you know it was the 100th anniversary of the ball drop?
I plan to get out more for "me time." Not an easy feat with work, various writing projects and Web sites to keep current for a handful of Web Clients, but I'm tired of being tethered to a computer all the time. I've come to realize that on rare occasions that I'm not working, I'm either talking about work or thinking about various projects on my plate--that's not healthy. This year, I'll strive to maintain a balanced life, with equal parts work and play. I have plans 3 weekends out of 4 this month that will help!
