To celebrate 2007 we each wrote down things we wanted to do/change in the new year and used one of our HumanLight candles to burn it. It was a nice ceremony, especially since the kids do enjoy burning things.
Each new year it is usually hard for me to remember to change the year when writing the date. Well into February I am usually still writing the previous year. However, for some reason I had been writing 2007 on my checks since October of '06. I figured that it would be easy for me to make the change this time. The other day when writing a check I accidently wrote 2008. Always thinking ahead!
