Well, I've made it through the first full week of January without actually accomplishing anything. Many thoughts have percolated through my head. I'm contemplating what seems to be the newest New Year's trend - the word-of-the-year. I haven't yet found the word that I want to encapsulate what I want in my life. They all seem incomplete. I will keep pondering.
I got to see the smallest house in the whole world...
... and I got my first-ever letter from Ellie:
"Mom, can you please not forget me."
