Talked to my sister last night for the first time in a year. Her husband is apparently on disability now. This is depressing; on the other hand, it means they have some money to live off of. I also found out Jason mailed them a gift certificate for Christmas, and that made me happy.
Meanwhile I think I made my New Year's resolution: do not spend Jan 1 2014 sleeping in an airport. It's what I did Jan 1 2012 and yesterday and I think it's really not that great. My hope is that I can spent Jan 1 2014 on the beach in Melbourne with my roommate (because she will have moved back to Australia). That, I think will be an ace New Year's day.
