Back Among The Living

Barely, but here I am.

We went to Hubbs Christmas Party Saturday night, and we looked smoking hot if I do say so myself. I was still a little sick, but beer helped that feeling. It was a little uncomfortable because we didn't really know anybody, then we ended up at a table with the owner and his wife. Nice people, but we were very nervous. We had a nice dinner, gambled for a minute (my $20.00 a year habit)then left.

We decided to stop by our old favorite dive bar on the way home, still dressed to the nines. We ended up staying out until 3:00 am! So not like us, I'm usually in bed by 11pm, even on weekends. Had a few million beers, a couple shots of some nonsense, then dragged our butts home.

Needless to say I felt like death warmed over yesterday, but it was family movie day so nothing much was required of me.

Today and tomorrow are half days for me at work, then I'm off until the 29th. I'm very much looking forward to spending some time at home with the family. My bro and his family are coming over for dinner and gift exchange on Wednesday, and I think I'm going to have Little Wing and her family over for lunch this week. "Aunt" C (My mom's best friend) is coming over for dinner tomorrow with her boyfriend, and Youngest is going to play "Pretty Woman" for them on his guitar.

The only thing that could make this week better is if Oldest lived close enough to visit. Other than that,I'm pretty happy with the way things are.

What are your holiday plans?

My holiday plans?
Hit the lake early early early in the morning, try to catch a BAT, then maybe swing by my folk's house and bum some dinner from them.
I LOVE being single again!
No obligations, you know?

Hope you're feeling better now. Your holiday plan sounds great. A lot of family and friends' get-togethers. I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun. For us, we don't celebrate Christmas, not much of the new year either. We celebrate Chinese new year which is around the end of January in 2009(sometimes it's around early February depends on the year).

wirecutter-Big ass trout? Sounds like a great plan!

I am feeling better Miyonao, thanks. I love being surrounded by family and friends! Don't you have a week long celebration for the new year?
