Annette and I had to get up at 4:30 in the morning to get out of the hotel and catch our 7:05 flight from Philly back here to Florida, so we were in no mood for a big New Year’s Eve celebration. So it was a pretty low-key night around here. We all went to the beach to see the fireworks shot off of the Naples pier. Here’s one lame attempt at capturing the fireworks:

We came back here and I was in bed by 10 pm. I did hear some fireworks at about midnight, which are supposedly against the rules of “the compound;” will heads roll?
As far as resolutions go: My big one is to of course get back on the diet. I just now got onto Annette’s parent’s scale, and depending on how accurate the thing is, my goal is to lose around 16 or 18 pounds by my birthday, which is March 25. That ain’t going to be easy, but it is also not beyond the realm of possibility. I have a schedule during the winter term where I will be able to go to they gym at least 5 days a week. So if I stick to that and stop my pattern of holiday gluttony…
