My parents and little brother surprised me at my apartment last night when I got home from work, and we had to use something other than my coffee cups to ring in the new year.
My mom brought everything but the kitchen sink- pots, pans, a huge piece of roast beef, vegetables.
They stayed the night, and as I was covering the Capital One Bowl today, they were cooking, and cleaning, and fixing my apartment.
I came home from work and dinner was ready, my laundry was all done and folded, my refrigerator was cleaned out and practically color-coordinated, and that knob that had been hanging off my laundry room door for months, was back to normal.
I gave them all a big hug and kiss before they left and told them they could come back anytime.
So here's to a new year; no matter what kind of glass you're drinking out of, may you be toasting with the people you love and cherish every moment.
