Things of Note:

Day 3 of the new year, and it’s gone pretty much as expected (personally, politically, etc.). New Years Eve was spent in a glittery dress, with the hubs and friends. It was low-key.

There are some really good things coming in 2017, on a personal level. I’m hoping all of the very worrying political nonsense doesn’t shade my whole year with stress and anxiety. Time will tell.

How did you ring in the new year?

The Remnants who stayed awake agreed to keep a low profile, not fight one another, and help enforce the Pact on any who broke it. Red Ben Garston […]
