Two weeks of vacation are nearly over for the girls. I have been so busy at work that we have not had time to do anything "special" together. Twice they came up and helped me and I know we could never have finished our project if it weren't for them. They are work horses! I come up with these "brilliant" ideas at work but the execution is always way more complicated than the idea made it seem. We have packed up a library, two offices, and a reception area, moved it all to another location, and unpacked. Since it was the holiday week all the supporting departments were shorthanded, so we had to do ALL the work ourselves.
All that being said, I am glad we had a great way to bring in the new year.
Yesterday we rented enough DVDs to ensure we would still be awake at midnight, plus purchased new nail polishes in case we got bored. Then at midnight stood on our porch and banged pots and pans until we were sure the neighborhood was aware that the new year had arrived.
Today we joined our friends downtown for lunch and the New Year's parade. It was a beautiful day and great fun to see all the bands, floats, and made even more fun sharing it with friends.
After we got home we returned the DVDs, took some black eye peas to some church members, and fed our friend's fish. Then we enjoyed dinner with Mom and Dad and had our own black eye peas. Annabel has discovered another new favorite food!
Hope your new year is bright!
