Welcome to our Mets Family Holiday Newsletter! Is it possible another year has come and gone? Gosh, it seems like 2008 just started, all full of hope and yet here we are again.
The big news around here is our new house! Yes, even in this market! Let's just say we got a pretty good deal from the city (and the Citi — ha!) before things started to turn. Our new address is at the bottom. We're so excited! We'd love to invite everybody over, but it's kind of smaller than the last one, so do us a favor and call ahead (way ahead — we're gonna be pretty popular this summer!).
Seriously, if you want to come over, you really do need to plan with us in advance. We used to say come on over any time, that we had plenty of room, and we did, but our new home is a lot more intimate than the old one, so even though we really do want you to see it, you'll have to come over in shifts.
Also, you'll need to park where the old house is — I mean was! They're still clearing it away, but it should be all gone by the time we're ready for visitors. If it's not, don't freak out on us! We're right next door!
We're still decorating the new place. We thought we might have a new banner to display in the great room, but we seem to have lost that in September before the move (at least moving gives us an alibi this time!). It was a good year at the Mets anyway, we guess. Oh, we had to make some changes we weren't anticipating, some of them really late at night when everybody was asleep, but you know what they say about things changing and things staying the same.
Things always change with us Mets! And they stay the same!
The kids were adorable this year again, as you can tell from the enclosed photographs. Somebody got a Gold Glove and a Silver Slugger for Christmas! Somebody else got knee surgery, but not because he was a bad boy or anything. He was quite good, actually! We adopted another couple of kids just in time for the holidays. Santa's taking care of them quite nicely. Alas, we had to kick out a couple of their brothers to make room, but you know what they say about omelettes and breaking eggs. We break a lot of eggs here at the Mets!
We'll try to stay out of trouble in the coming year (we seem to have a knack for finding it — ha again!) and we promise to follow through on our New Year's resolution to finish what we start more often. It wouldn't be the New Year if we didn't make that resolution…before we break it! (ha once more!).
