Happy New Year!

I started these when I started my trip, finished them yesterday, and pulled them off my feet with real regret. They're mostly wool, and I thought they'd be too warm, but it is only in the 20s today, so they are not.
This year my family met up in Boston and went to NYC for a couple of days.
The pink hat from the Squee-Up proved invaluable–as the shortest person in the family it's good to wear something that can be spotted in a crowd. Notice how my face matches its color.
We went to the Met!
The show was "Tales of Hoffman," which we didn't actually know until the tickets were in our hands–it was the Met, and Dad was determined to take me, and it was marvelous. In the first act, the listed performer was replaced by an understudy (the blur in the short pink dress in the above picture) and she got her chance and knocked it out of the park–she got to take several bows in the middle of her act, and got roars at curtain. Just like in the movies!

At the Museum of Natural History, we got to see a nice young man pop the question while standing with his girl under the whale's tail:
Back in Boston, we went to the Isabella Stewart Gardiner Museum (the museum Howard Finster would have made if he'd had the money) and the House of the Seven Gables, and the Witch Museum, but generally it was just quiet family stuff. Also there was snow.
When I got back home Sukey gave me a hiss ("Who are you? You look the one who is gone!") but allowed pets and snorgles later. Sally was her own sweet self, and it's very good to be back with them.
My life converges

I think 2010 is going to be a year of change–I don't know where yet, but that's how it feels. Be happy, be healthy, be better than before!
