That's the guy I'm married to (just short of FOREVER) braving the wind and cold for some pictures while I snapped one from the doorway and closed it again.
December 26th we were both right back to work. We spent Wednesday evening with a group of good friends and neighbors laughing and celebrating some more. (then going back to work Thursday after 6 hours of sleep) Zzzzz But it was worth the good time, we'll catch up on sleep eventually.
After work on December 27th, my SuperDave and I went out to dinner because we have been married 33 years. (and who wants to cook after a day at work?) Yes, 33 years, people! During dinner we tried to name all the people we know who have been married longer than us and toasted to 33 more! We are very blessed - two of the couples of our list are our parents - both sets married over 55 years!
Our cold wet weather is continuing today. Tomorrow we'll be driving six and a half hours round trip to have Christmas with my family. So we'll be off once AGAIN, bearing gifts and food for another whole day of noisy family fun. My family is sort of loud, but in our defense any group of people that large is noisy, right? (20 to 40 depending on who can make it)
I'm thinking Sunday I'll be sitting by the fire all day again resting up for my New Year's Eve "not" party. It's not going to be a party - just four or five couples trying to stay awake until midnight. Unless friends hanging out eating and drinking and laughing until midnight IS a party - then it IS going to be a party. I'm going to need a nap when 2013 gets here.
my apologies for any typos, transposed or left out words....the short nights and Christmas cookies are starting to addle my brain
