Am excited about this new year and the changes it will bring. Yes, I've had tons of changes since October, but soon I'll decide where I'm going to live, and I'm thrilled.
As for now--I got up early and have minestrone soup simmering on the stove to take to Joe and Cindy's house. We will go there at 11.
Yesterday I went to Mass with Jane. Usually I see so many people I know, but didn't this time. Then she and Kris and I ran errands and ate lunch at Panera. Is it a publicly traded company? If so, I should buy some stock, as much as I eat there.
We went out to the cemetary to bring flowers, but someone had beat us to it. We'll all go out there today around 11:30 for the ceremonial beer drinking and remembering. Then back to J and C's for a scrumptious spread. Joe made chili, Jane made French Onion Soup, and I made minestrone. We'll surely have enough soup choices. :) Then of course, they'll be tons of other things. Around here we never start a diet on New Year's Day, but rather the day after.
Last night we watched Little Miss Sunshine. I was the only one who really liked it a lot. Jane and Sarah tolerated it and kept walking in and out of the room until the end. So it just wasn't their kind of movie. Then we watched part of Bend It Like Beckham (again). I love that movie...but we got tired a little after 11 and went to bed. I knew I'd have to get up at 7 to start my soup, so it didn't make sense to stay awake until midnight. Jordan stayed over at a friend's house, so he probably made it.
Sarah hardly coughed last night. I'm so glad as my heart just goes out to her, she hasn't been sleeping. She stayed in her own bed instead of having to sleep in the recliner, too, so that was also good.
Okay, better get busy. Will write about the details of the day later. Happy new year to all! (Hope I kick some butt in poker.)
