It’s hard to believe another year has flown by. This past week alone has been a whirlwind. I feel like I’ve traveled and visited more people than I did all year!
My friend Kris & I went out to dinner in Olde City on Thursday and then to see my friend Tim
in a singer/songwriter’s circle at a little venue. I hadn’t realized how long it have been since I’d seen Tim – but it has been too long. The show was great – it was wonderful to be out, to see Tim, to meet his wife and to just have fun.
Last night we had a youth group game night for new year’s eve. I don’t usually do anything on new year’s eve because I host an open house on new year’s day and always spend the night getting ready. But this year I decided to try something different. We had a pretty good turnout and I had a good time. Michelle & I especially had fun playing Scattergories as a team…lol. (You’d have had to be there to understand…but we were loony!) I was so exhausted by the time midnight rolled around; I was ready to go home.
Once home though, I still felt like I should do some things to get ready for today so I didn’t get to bed until about 1:30…and boy, did I feel that this morning when I had to be peppy & raring to go to lead teach sunday school. Thankfully, the kids were tired too and we had a quiet craft to work on! Then I rushed out of there to come home and get all the food and stuff ready.
Whoo. It was a nice night – it was good to see friends and relax. Some of the usual suspects weren’t in attendance this year…and I missed them. : ( It is so hard to find time to get together with people these days…and that makes me sad. It shouldn’t be so hard.
Well, now I am totally exhausted. Thankfully, the new job doesn’t start until Tuesday, so I have another day off. I am hoping to sleep in and indulge in some real R&R. We shall see!
I’ve got some thoughts about the new year, resolutions and what not…but that will have to wait until later. Must sleep!
Wishing you all happiness in the new year!
