The Circle Game

December 31st, 2008 at 09:51 pm

I know it really is time to bid farewell to 2008 and say hello to 2009 because the following happened today:

- I wrote my first check dated 2009 ... Wrote the check for the rent due Jan. 1st and dropped it off at the apartment office when I took the dog out for his afternoon walk.

- DH, bless his prompt little heart, printed out the year-end profit statement for his business this evening. I do our taxes (with a lot of help from Turbo Tax), and he knew I'd be asking for it.

- I put a new manilla folder in our financial files, labeled "2009 Taxes"

Gee ... I seem to recall having a very similar day (with just one digit changed) ... oh ... about 366 (2008 was a leap year) days ago! Happy New Year everyone!

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
Wer'e captive on the carousel of time
We can't return, we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game
(from "The Circle Game" by Joni Mitchell)

    Your post made me dig out the song after not listening to it for a while... it's in my iTunes now.

    Happy New Year! Hope 2009 is far better for everyone than 2008 was.
