Happy New Year to everyone. Today we have many of the bowl games on TV. Many families will will have relatives or friends over to celebrate this holiday. I hope that everyone helps in getting ready for the company. Bring a dish if you are visiting. Offer to help in the kitchen. Help after the meal to organize and clean up everything. Doing dishes should be done with guests participating in this work. End the day watching bowl games on TV or any other show that is special to you and your family. Relax and enjoy this holiday. Tomorrow work and school days resume. Get some sleep and get ready to resume normal day to day activities. Have a very Happy New Year.
