Veronica (mother of adorable Amy) gave me flowers! What a great start to the last day of the year.
My husband is fixing the floor, and set off all the smoke detectors. Slightly iffier -- fixed up floor! YAY! Endless beeping and attendant howling by dogs, not so YAY. But...fixed up floor, all windows wide open, fresh air pouring in on all sides...hmmm...just a more convoluted but ultimately good start to the last day of the year.
