There are many going-ons at the beginning of the year, namely, the playoffs and the Super Bowl, as well as the Academy Awards. Those things are all watched at the Lewis-Baker household (or at a bar).
Another thing that happens at the beginning of the year is the reassessment of my budget, in which I look at December’s spending, which then leads me to cursing myself over how much I’ve spent on holiday funtivities.
