    Happy New Year!!
    It is a little bittersweet that Beloved and I are not off in a Chinatown somewhere watching dragons and listening to drums. It's damned cold this year, though, so perhaps I'm not too upset. We're sitting in a cozy living room with kids who are growing and thriving and a good bit of happiness and comfort (there's even a fire in the fireplace!)

    We enjoyed reading our Chinese Horoscopes for the year.

    Rat : 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
    The clever rat will do well to spend this year planning for the beginning of the next twelve year cycle. This cycle has been a bit difficult, but starting with the rat year in 2008, plans should start to succeed. This year of the Pig is a good time to be with friends and family who are celebrating the fullness of the year. Take care of old business and tie up loose ends that might get in the way of your coming good fortune. Enjoy vacations and hobbies this year. You will need to be well rested when your year begins.

    This is fun for me -- as Beloved pointed out, this difficult 12 year cycle spoken of started in early 1995 when I was approximately 2 months married. The 12 years saw some really dark times for me --- and we know that the future currently looks bright!!! (E. is also a Rat. She was frustrated by the horoscope, though, since she hasn't been alive for 12 years yet. She wants me to find a kid one.)

    Ox : 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997
    The year of the hard working pig brings good fortune for the ox. The energy is there to get more done and this brings prosperity and success to the sturdy ox. Just remember that this is also a year of celebration. The ox should not become so busy with work that he misses the invitation to the banquet table. It is there that new opportunities will be discovered. The ox should take care to include time for romance in this year's busy work schedule.

    Hopefully this is true for him, too, now that he finally has a chance to turn to the work that he has loved and aspired to do on a full time basis for years. Here's to a great year!
