Starting Out The 2010 On A Jim Dandy Note

I am so thankful my friend's had pity on me and invited me and my boys to their home to share the evening with them and our mutual friends. They are one of the neatest couples! We had all kinds of amazing food: crab legs, smoked salmon, pork chops, and baked goods too numerous to count.

I brought a movie for the boys to watch since there aren't typically other kids at the party. We had a nice bit of time while we watched that. I think we spent the time trying to get the food to digest so we could go gorge ourselves a bit more!

We played Catch Phrase, where at the very end I decided to cheat so that we'd stop playing and watch the ball drop in Times Square. heh heh heh I kept giving my group misleading descriptions that had nothing to do with the word I was given. I did this to my pastor's wife last year and handed it to her right as the buzzer went off. Well I was able to do it again, to our friend sitting next to us, but not everyone thought it was close enough to midnight. We had nearly 10 minutes left!!! Our pastor's wife took away a point, which our pastor tried to sneak back after we won the next round. tee hee hee

We turned the tv on to watch the ball drop and I had to shield my boys eyes from what was on regular tv. All kinds of making out in some promo for a movie coming out or something. It was ridiculous!! No one could believe that it was Jennifer Lopez on stage with that guy from American Idol. She was all of a sudden the talk of the room.

The boys and I headed home about 20 minutes later. We got here and let our 1 1/2 year old Border Collie into the rest of the house from the entryway where I have him boxed in so he doesn't destroy anything. When he was even younger he would've spent the time we were gone in his kennel.

As he got older he received more privileges to the rest of the house when we were gone. Then he got bored, even with his chew toys and bones. He started taking things off the shelf and destroying them. So, back down to the entryway he went.

When I went down to let him out, I found he'd shredded the bottom step carpet!! We had the carpet replaced back in May, and he'd destroyed that first step also. I thought we were beyond this!! I mean, there was a pile, yes, a PILE of pieces of carpet. I was so upset because I have no idea when I can get this fixed!!

Not exactly how I wanted to start off the new year/decade. Things must get better from here, right?

I sure hope things do get better from here! That food is making me hungry--what a feast. Happy New Year!

Sounds like you had a fun time. I was in shock at what J.Lo was wearing. She may as well have been naked. Tacky, in my opinion.
Have a great 2010!
