It must be really cold outside because its cool in the apartment and I have the heat turned up as far as I'm willing to take it. I did some weatherizing but I didn't go all out like I used to when I lived in a house and my utility bill was $200 plus dollars a month. I don't even pay a fourth of that now.
Anyhoo, my family came over last night to spend New Years Eve with me. We cranked up the music and watched the countdown on the television. I had fun, even danced a little (when people laugh at you can you really call it dancing?) and my sis manned the blender for mixed drinks. Virgin for some, not so virgin for others.
I cooked dinner. It was okay. Nothing to brag about, needed more salt and whatnot but it wasn't horrific either. I even played video games with my little nephew and by 4a.m. it was time to turn off the lights and call the party quits.
But then I was awakened by my little niece (six months old) crying and not wanting to go to sleep. It was around 6:30 a.m. when all was quiet again and I closed my eyes to sleep. But then 9:30 a.m. rolled around and I found myself awake again. I'm ready for a nap but fear if I go to sleep now I might not sleep through the night like I should.
I'll have to decide soon what's for dinner and make some phone calls. Some folks don't know what's been going on with me and what they think is going on with me is so wrong, I need to set straight any incorrect information. I'm going to try to keep in better contact with my family this year. 2009 was bumpy for so many reasons, I'm hoping to have a smoother transition in 2010.
