It's less than an hour before starting 2008, though given my computer and library work I've been typing the new year for about two months now. For the start of '08, I appear to have caught a bit of a cold and I'm babying myself with tea and quite a bit of sleep.
The transition from the old year to the new isn't all bad (and even the cold isn't bad, just a little annoying). I came in second in my fantasy football team this year (my first year playing), and while it would have been cool to win it all or at least have had a closer final game I'm happy with the results. I'll just have to crush them all next year.
Fantasy football is a little odd. I went from being an indifferent fan of the New England Patriots -
almost a necessity for work in the northeastern part of the United States - to rooting for players. While it was great that the Patriots ended their regular season 16-0, it was much more important for Brian Westbrook to make a lot of plays and rack up the points or for my quarterback to not throw an interception. I think I enjoyed football more without thinking about the team rivalries and instead focusing on the individuals and what they bring to their teams.
So, tomorrow (or about 40 minutes from now) is the start of a new year. I already have a few pictures of the scariest hat on the block to post and a new gorgeous project to work on. I have made a ton of ornaments and am gearing up to start on things for my store and life looks like it is going to be grand. So, goodbye 2007. You were a good year and I'll miss you a bit, but I'm looking forward to the new. Hello 2008!
