Around 7 o'clock we left for the party and stopped at Glenda's to retrieve her mail and papers. She's still feeling 'loopy' and decided not to make it to the New Years Eve bash at Ellen's. A holiday weekend with no office hours for doctors is not an ideal time to get a dizzy spell. We wished her Happy New Year and headed to the back of Cedar Hills.
How fun to see everyone that we used to hang out with (Joyce and Dan, Robin and Janet, Karen, and of course, Dwayne and Ellen.) We played cards, Screw Your Neighbor, and dominoes, Mexican Train. There was a ton of great tasting food. I ate way too much. The games were fun. I had double 12's when I needed 11's and double 11's when I needed 12's in Mexican Train. Bob held up our family pride and won at our table. We watched the ball drop at midnight and wished each other Happy New Year. We finished our last round of Mexican Train and hit the road. It was nice to not have to drive far, only about nine miles. I can't express how happy it makes me to be remembered by old friends and included in their celebrations. It's hard to feel part of a community out on the road all of the time. It's nice to know folks who welcome us back and make us feel so at home.
Back home we were wide awake so we watched Part 2 of Enterprise until 2:00 a.m.
It's 1:06 a.m. and 63.2 degrees. It was almost foggy out as we came home. You could feel moisture on your bare arm as if the atmosphere was wet with rain.
