One last hosiery shot for the year.
Hey, kids. I just thought I'd pop in quickly to wish you all a happy New Year! I hope you were able to ring it in in style. I had a nice mellow evening.
Last year, my girls were at their dad's house, I went to a party and a few bars, had a couple of boys chasing me from one establishment to the next, but went home around 2 and talked an out of town guy on the phone until we were both falling asleep around 4. What a difference a year makes. I had the girls this year. Stinky got into a spot of trouble a while back and now has a strict 10 o'clock curfew. Originally, I was going to just stay home, but G. was having a hard time finding people to go out and play with. So, I told her I'd come and get her around 7'ish. We stopped down at the Dublin and found it very, very slow there. So, we went to Mickey's to eat, and a few of the younger regulars, met us there. It was wickedly cold here, and that meant Mickey's was pretty dead too. We went back to the Dublin after that, where I had my one and only beer of the evening. A few more friends had shown up by then, so I had a nice time dorking-out and dancing around. I went home and spent the rest of the night with my girls. Except for a few guy friends, this New Year's Eve was totally boy-free and I am totally fine with that...One less thing.
Me making a bad dance face. No surprise there.
As far as ringing in a new year and a new decade is concerned, I think I'll stick with my usual stance: I can't help what happens to me (for the most part) but I can help how I react to things. So, I'm hoping for the strength to deal with anything that comes my way with grace, compassion and dignity. Wish me luck.
