I gave up watching New Year fireworks for the thrill of actually keeping a not-quite-New-Year goal of waking up before 7:30 for 7 days straight, and I did it! =) Sure, it's a minor thing to all of you people who actually do get up with the sun (although this is easier in the Canadian winter, because the sun hardly ever wakes up). It's still a nice little accomplishment for me. Check one off my list of goals for 2007!
