In Response

Shannon- I'm impressed you could find anything of note between Memphis and Nashville! Plus, if you're going to do Tiff and Cullen that way, I figured you needed your own link. (Doesn't she know Lee is a boy's name?)

C-Dog- I'm glad you had fun at the beach. We were so glad to see you when you got home! Connor loves to play with Charlie, and we love to see you and the Prof. But I have to ask: Weren't you supposed to host Christmas THIS year? (insert winking emoticon here)

Sassy- Most of you know that I love to make resolutions, mainly because I love the idea of a blank slate. Tiff and I used to love buying school-year-length calendars in August, getting our new syllabuses (I know, syllabi- it's not as fun, though) and putting all the assignments on the calendar. It was a shiny new semester, and we were going to make the most of it! (P.S. We never did.) Anyway, this year I resolve to lose the weight I gained over the holidays, make better financial decisions, take at least two trips without the kids, read more books written for adults (see below), watch more movies and drink fewer, but higher quality, bottles of wine.

SAM- Here's my list of things I love about my home state, West Virginia:
1. I don't live there anymore.

Spicklers- I'm glad it's not just us! It's time for Connor to start getting less stuff.

Aunt Elizabeth- A list of books I read in 2007:
1. Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris
2. Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner
3. Waiting for Birdy by Catherine Newman
4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
5. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
6. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
7. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
8. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
9. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
10. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
11. Can I Keep My Jersey? by Paul Shirley
12. Television Without Pity: 752 Things We Love to Hate (and Hate to Love) About TV by Tara Ariano and Sarah D. Bunting
13. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
14. Seven Seconds or Less by Jack McCallum
That list is sad. If I hadn't read all of the HP books in preparation of book seven, this list would have one work of fiction-one I've read countless times already. Horrible. (See resolutions above.)

I recently finished reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I highly recommend this book to everyone. It's a good one.
