Our Weird Little New Year’s (Video)

My feeling is that when you spend the day traveling across the country with two children and a husband with a broken foot for the second time in under a week, and all four of you have recently recuperated from the stomach flu, and oh yes, it’s New Year’s Eve, you should probably get naked on the plane.

To give you a sense of how this day went, let me tell you how it started. I woke up at 3:45 AM, put on my very best snowman costume, and started a cup of coffee brewing in the Keurig so it would be ready when I got back from walking the dogs in the pitch-black. When I returned, what I found was an overflowing cup and a kitchen absolutely flooded with coffee. Upon closer inspection, though, what I discovered was that the cup was not, in fact, overflowing at all. Nope, it was upside-down.

I put a mug in the coffee machine upside-down.

And I think it’s safe to say the day just went uphill from there.

I’ll let the video do the talking.

We’re heeeeeere! We’re here we’re here we’re here. I went a little MIA for the past three days because…well, because “busy” is a little bit of an understatement, but also because I didn’t have Internet. But now I do, whee....
