Crazy busy day. I wasn't going to work today, but ended up doing just that, since I had a bunch of work and personal projects that needed attention before the long holiday weekend. Then off to run a slew of errands this evening, which took much longer than I expected, but I got everthing done. So now maybe I can relax this weekend with reading, my blogs, writing, and photography projects (and probably some exercise and a little house cleaning thrown in).
The past few years I haven't been in the mood to go out to the bars and restaurants on New Year's Eve the way I use to. Most recently I've been relaxing at home, ringing in the new year in a simpler more spiritual way. This may in some small measure be a sign of age, as I just don't bounce back as quickly anymore after an evening of eating, drinking and partying. Recovery that use to take one day, now takes a couple days. Maybe that's good in at least one respect: it forces me to stick with my two drink limit during an evening out. More healthy and no hangover!
So, I'm looking forward to tomorrow and the New Year - especially in regard to moving my new blogs, writing and photography projects forward. And my two tabby buddies, Bugsy and BJ will be right here with me! For now, I'm going to finish my newspapers and reading then hit the sheets. Better 'get to it'.
