Don’tcha just love time off?
The sleeping in, the breakfast at 11:30, the shower at 3:00…
But for the life of me I don’t know what day it is. And then once I figure it out, I quickly forget moments later.
But I do love the carefulness with which I am writing “2009” on stuff like deposit slips and checks.
So today I put away laundry, worked on a Mad Science teacher database, re-applied for Virginia Beach teaching positions and whipped up three or so kings (gifts made separately) for the K-1 stage at church.
AND I figured out that it is FRIDAY today. That makes tomorrow SATURDAY, even though YESTERDAY felt like Saturday to me. Go figure.
And a Saturday with NO football or soccer games, practices, or tournaments! Whatever shall I do?
Our New Year’s Rocking Eve 2008 was loads of fun as we gathered with some new family friends for dinner at Tiajuana Flats
(we took up the ENtire restaurant) and games back at the Brave Family’s abode. Hubby and I played a thoughtful and provoking round of Pen-A-Caption-For-A-New-Yorker-Cartoon-And-Hope-Yours-Is-The-Best-One. Then the teens & tweens graciously allowed us old folks the privilege of participating in a Karaoke tournament on the Wii. Daughter and I sang “Living on a Prayer.”
We were not the best.
While Hubby and Friend busted a little “Jenny/867-5309.”
Neither were they.
Then we counted down, toasted, hugged and kissed each other and followed that up by watching some half-baked lunatic jump a motorcycle on AND OFF a building. There was blood…but not too much.
On (what day was it?) Thursday, January 1, 2009 I went in search of some more beauty. Because I’m still stunned from the SC scenery and I just had a craving and felt sure there’s some around me and my camera to be found here too. Sadly, my batteries died. Probably from the overdose of me scrolling through the boat/marsh/kid pictures several times daily from Christmas on. But I got a few:
2009 is off to a great start ya’ll!
