Last day of 2009

Updating in mostly real time today, since I'm lazy and groggy. Boys had me up annoyingly early after I stayed up far too late. The result: a bleary & cranky mama. Hope I can manage to stay awake for our big spectacular New Year's Eve plans tonight! Um, ok, well, I'm making a fancy dinner for us after the boys are asleep and we're going to curl up and watch movies with an assortment of semi-restricted snacks. And maybe a glass of bubbly. And will hopefully be awake - HA! Or wake up just in time for - the countdown. I know we'll be awake in the first few minutes of 2010 since our neighbours tend to shoot off fireworks.
