I have been moaning about 2016 for a while, but honestly? Most of my objection is that it piled a good chunk of things on top of each other in the latter part of the year, especially the holiday season. This is not to say there weren't sad and even terrible things this year, because I can't type that with a straight face.

But 2016 did have some good times too, and I'm glad for those. I'm glad for the snow gamely trying to cling to the lavender and the cars out front. I'm grateful for Scott's recovery which is going well. I'm glad Andrew is enjoying school and Cub Scouts. I'm glad Ian got to move to a great new preschool with more outdoors time/space, which he is loving. I'm glad I made a little time for photography. I'm glad for some new recipes we've found that we enjoy. I'm glad for the good friends who were with us physically or virtually (or both) this year. I'm glad for sharing, and smiles, and pears. I'm glad for tea, and kindness wherever and whenever it manages to creep in.

I'm glad for improving my accountability and tracking of various things, including budgets and to-do lists.

I'm also glad for sleep. I hope 2017 will manage to be a good year - I'm a bit worried about it, but I can't do much of use about those worries at this very minute, so right now I will just hope - but however much I hope that, I still let it ring itself in last night. I watched the ball drop for midnight on the east coast, and then I finished chores and went to bed.
