Anybody have any suggestions on how to get through this part of the holidays? I am dreading going through this one - all the "Auld Lang Syne" stuff and no one to kiss at midnight, etc., etc., etc. I don't drink, so boozing my way through it is not an answer. Every time I turn on the tv they're running yet another "look back at this year" including all the famous deaths - as if I'm not already spending enough time "looking back" and thinking about deaths. I have two large sons (19 and 24) and I think they are looking to me to figure out what to do. I bought us each beautiful 2008 calendars and am trying to look forward, but feel like this last holiday of the season may hit us the worst. Any ideas?? Thanks.
