CAROL PERKINS: Ready for a New Year

'This entire season caught me unprepared. I wasn't ready for it when it came upon me,' Carol Perkins writes. But it was still quite eventful, with traditional reunion in Sulphur Well, a hurried trip to Nashville, Christmas with the family, the loss of a treasured item of jewelry there, and a realization that now the last of the fruitcake is gone, there's no need to turn on the outside lights - time to get ready for the new year.

By now you have probably opened all your gifts, taken back the ones that didn't fit or you didn't want/need, and overstuffed the garbage can with boxes and wrappings. By now, you are probably sick of the tree, don't turn on your outside lights, and have eaten the last of the fruitcake. By now, you are ready for a new year.
