It’s a new year!

Posted on: January 1, 2014

I remember when I sat watching the fantastic fireworks displays in 2000.  As I watched Sydney and all their lights and computers worked, I knew that Y2K was another one of those fear factors that the media hyped for its own end.

But now 14 years later which is unbelievable, I’m over psyched anticipating my visit in Arkansas and the readings of Nurnberg High School history and my mind is swirling with possibilities of how to tell my story of living there.

It’s 2 am and I’m awake!  Guess I’ll play a couple games of solitaire.  No RLS, just hyped.

Didn’t get much done today – exercise, drove to Cartridge World only to find they had closed at 2 and I was about an hour late.  Stopped at GE for New Years food and spotted Bailey’s on sale.  It said there was a rebate, but the printing was near the floor and I couldn’t see it anyway.  What I thought was going to cost me $6 turned into $13.  I picked up the larger size  because it was difficult to read the leaflets!  JOY, JOY!!

Played Puerto Rico with Simon and Jeff.  Fun game once we figured it out.  Jeff won!  Another new game called Upword is a little like Scrabble, but more challenging because the board is smaller.  Of course I had the worst letters, no vowels!  Jeff won that game also.

Ate our New Year’s dinner of hot dogs, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and black eyed peas.  Yumm!  Annalise didn’t try much, but Simon liked the black eyed peas.  Thought we were joking since there’s a band called “Black-eyed Peas.  Went home early to pack!!
