Friday, December 29, 2006 - Feast One Hundred & Twenty Four
Appetizer - How do you usually celebrate on New Year's Eve?
For the last several years, we've had 4-5 families that we go to church with come out and spend the evening with us. This year we're smoking ribs (per Laura's request) and adding a lady whose family will be in New York for New Year's. It's a great time we look forward to all year.
Soup - Name one thing unexpected that happened to you in 2006.
Here's two - I suffered some employment setbacks that had me reevaluating my place there. Most of the immediate problems have at least been addressed, though time will tell what the ultimate resolution will be.
The other would be the fact that, unexpectedly, I ended up in a horn band that rehearsed throughout the year and will have our first public performance at a wedding on January 5. I've never actually played in a band before (keyboards) and I'll also be singing a few numbers, and I'm really looking forward to it. I also had a couple other good experiences music directing shows in 2006 that have put my hobby/career on a nice path.
Salad - Where was your favorite place that you visited in 2006?
We visited Ft. Lauderdale and spent the week there during the 4th of July and had a wonderful time.
Main Course - What resolution is your top priority for 2007?
Same as every year, Pinky...to take over the world.
Well, absent that to perform necessary home repair that we've been putting off for a while. Also we'll be moving BrainyBoy from his small room to the bigger playroom downstairs, and moving the playroom into his old room. He'll be 11 in February, and really needs a bigger space since he's becoming a young man.
Dessert - Using just three words, describe 2006.
Preparing, evaluating, enduring.
