It's New Year's Eve.
The sun has not risen, nor have I slept yet. But the last day of a difficult year has begun. I can't say a lot of positive things about 2009, and I look forward to sweeping it out the door tonight.
But for now, it's time to brush my teeth, curl up under a warm blanket and prepare for the wintry mix that will greet the sun as this year - and this decade - winds down.
More words when I have coffee and daylight.
