The boys are back in town.

It looks like the vacation on the cape was good for everyone. They came home with good moods, bags of Christmas gifts and lots of stories. There’s another four days of vacation left and the older boys are already making plans to see friends and go to dances. Nobody’s even mentioned New Year’s Eve. Last year we set the clocks ahead 3 hours so that Doc would think it was midnight and we counted down and then he went to bed happy. The rest of us stayed up to watch the chilly crowds in Times Square watch the ball drop.

This year? Well... I never cared about watching the ball drop but Lady Gaga will be there and Kit is gaga over Gaga. So my guess is the TV will be tuned to that all night. Maybe this year we’ll let Doc fall asleep on the sofa with a belly full of junk food and soda, then wake him up when it’s time to go to bed.

Hmmm. That sounds good for him and me both...
