The Seventh Day of Christmas and New Year’s Eve

I usually sleep through New Year’s. At my last house, some of my neighbors would shoot guns into the air at midnight, waking me up. “Happy New Year,” I’d mutter before rolling over to go back to sleep. I could also hear the fireworks at Coors Field. The first time I heard that, it sounded as if war had broken out before I figured out what it was. Unfortunately, I couldn’t see the show because of all the big trees in the neighborhood.

I never go out on New Year’s Eve because I don’t like crowds, I don’t drink, and I’m generally not much fun. I’d rather stay home and read a book, a statement that’s true for me almost any day.

Which reminds me, I need to go to the library today. Then I’ll spend some time figuring out how I’ll fit everything I want to do next year into my days of reading, eating, and sleeping. And petting my cat.
