Happy New Year
Hola compadres! Yes I know....been almost 2 months since my last entry. I did go to confession for not blogging and Msgr Fater gave me 50 Hail Mary's and about 100 Our Father's and also told me to wash his car and Craig's car. So...here I am.. back for 2007 journal writing.
Today Paul and I watched President Ford's funeral service. Sad, but a nice service indeed. The music always make me cry and even though Paul may not know what I was saying--I was telling all about Pres Ford and we told him we were sorry MI lost in the Rose Bowl. At least they could have won for him. Next time we visit Crystal Mountain Resort in MI--Mom and Wayne will take us to Grand Rapids so we can see his burial site. Being a former History teacher, I must write that the pardon he gave to Nixon was the right thing. We all know it cost him the election in 1976...... The media sure did show Betty a lot during the service. She is a strong woman and remarkable person. I only hope to be a strong woman like her when I grow up.
To recap--Mom and Wayne came for Thanksgiving. We had a grand time. Paul really enjoyed playing with Grandad...especially reading books and going thru flashcards. I made a full mean, but cheated a little with the turkey. Picked up a Fried Turkey from Acadiana and only had to heat it up a little and baste it. It all turned out well. Made 2 pies....pumpkin and a choc, caramel pecan pie for my honey. They went to Denver from here for a week. Returned to SA for a couple of days--but Wayne was sick so we laid low.
Went to Houston/Friendswood the weekend of Dec 9-10 to visit Danny's family. We had a nice time and I think the cousins were happy to see Paul. Danny and Chris went to the Texans fb game on Sunday---really to see Vince Young (UT grad) and the Titans....and wouldn't you know..Vince Young ran for a TD and beat Houston in OT. At least I think it was OT--or at least the very end of the game. Houston SHOULD have drafted Vince..BIG MISTAKE..BIG..as Julia Roberts says to the snotty sales gals in PRETTY WOMAN..as she shows them all her purchases from other stores!
GNO gathering at Maile's house in Dec. Our husbands were all quite nice to allow us to gather without them for some girlie time. Good food..good drinks and loads of laughs. Bob made an appearance...Tort Tort was the lucky one who got to take him home. He may show up again next year! We played TABOO....2 teams......my team was myself, Maile, Courtney and Tina.....losing team was Kristy, Pam, Andrea and Judy. Score was something like 26-8. Judy is kinda competitive...like myself..but I think worse. Pam was trying to get her team to say LIP SYNC..so she was dancing and lip syncing to a song being heard on the radio. Well, Judy about lost it..I watched her get madder and madder..until she said..."are we playing a game here or what?" I guess you had to be there..Pam WAS playing......silly Judy..... I thought Tina was going to bust a vein...she was laughing so hard..cause she knew what Pam was doing! :-) While I understand it was kinda mello compared to other Christmas GIRLS parties..I had a great time! Thanks to Maile for hosting and all the other lovely ladies for a memorable evening!
I must go now..but have lots to write about Paul over the past 2 months and Christmas and Hew Years. So check back soon for more exciting info...or not.
