….what a week.
How was your Christmas holiday? Hopefully it was a good day.
Mine was. At 8:30 on Christmas morning, there was a knock on the front door, and we all thought it was the UPS man with a last-minute Christmas delivery.
Even better. It was my dad! We were not expecting him at all, so it was a nice surprise.
And then….oh, there’s just so much to say and talk about. I don’t know where to start.
My cousin Gina is getting married next month, and Older Sister, Younger Brother, and I are all going to the wedding. It’s down in Savannah, Georgia, which should be really nice next month in terms of weather.
Guitar lessons are going really well. I can play so many songs now. For last week’s lesson, I played a song by George Harrison, my second favorite Beatle, called “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” That’s a good song.
The weather is finally getting colder. I don’t mean to complain, but the weather was so mild all month and we didn’t have a white Christmas. I’m sort of glad winter is making a comeback. I miss a little snow. (Notice I said ‘little,’ not ‘a lot.’)
Really missing Father Mike. Understandable, given it’s the holidays. I’m sure everyone at St. Mary’s is missing him.
I would like to tell you more about my friend Johnny, who has been one of the better things about this month. But again, I don’t know where to start. That would be a whole post in and of itself. Still processing. I’ll get back to you on it.
And, well, that’s it for now. Just providing an update.
Oh, I know. For the first time in my life, I’ve made a couple New Year’s resolutions. Yeah, I know I don’t really believe in those, but these two resolutions need to happen, and it’s time for them to happen.
One is pretty typical – I resolve to lose weight. I need to. My current place of employment has fitness centers on site, and I have access to them, so I really need to take advantage of that. Older Sister agreed to go with me, so. That’s one.
The second is I resolve to read more. All I got for Christmas were gift cards to book stores, which is fabulous considering all I wanted for Christmas were books. (Though I neglected to mention specific titles, which is why I got gift cards. Neat, huh?)
More later. I’ll try to do better next post.
