It's New Year's Eve here in Naples and but for a few practice fireworks, all is calm. It is sunny and warm and our doorman has posted a sign on the elevator that states, "Happy New Year. Beware of fireworks. Even the stupidest people can cause a disaster."

La Bimba is sickie, so I'm making some chicken soup. The Husband is out catching our New Year's dinner. He wishes he were fishing right now! Hah! No, he's just at the fish market.

I am a little sad, a little cranky. End of the year blues, perhaps.

It is good to be back in Naples after 24 wide-sidewalked days in Brooklyn. Though I had already called a motorist an asshole within 2 minutes after leaving the apartment, I am feeling fond of the city and its rowdy inhabitants. It will be sad to leave in June, but we are so ready.

Anyway, auguri, happy new year, and hope to be blogging in a big way in 2008. Baci!

Hello and Happy New Year! I have been reading your blog for a while and think it's just great. I am a fellow New Yorker who married a Neapolitan. The only difference is we live here, in the Bronx. Where is your family relocating to?

I do hope to see more of your interesting writing this year. Your daughter is lovely.

Happy New Year to you and your family! Time flies as it just seems that you left for Brooklyn. I hope for your sanity that the beautiful little one recovers real soon!
