Happy New Year

We were in bed before 11 last night, so we didn't watch the ball drop! Under normal circumstances we would have stayed up late, but I started to feel bad again in the evening and David had to get to bed at a decent time so he could get up and go to work today. yuck. Yes, they made him work today. I guess that's what you get for taking 16 days vacation and getting Christmas off. Oh, well. He will be home for dinner though. Good thing because I am making the traditional dinner. A blend of David's mom and mine. Mom R. used to always make an eye of round roast and serve it with sauerkraut. I guess black eyed peas and cornbread were part of her tradition too, but I don't remember that. My mom always made Hoppin' John on New Years Day. So we're having both! Mmmm... It smells really earthy in the house today with the blackeyed peas slow simmering on the stove. I took a shortcut and made the roast in the crockpot. Mom R. used to make it in a pot on the stove all day. I didn't want to risk burning or overcooking it.
We spent about two hours at Dad R.'s house last night. We had pizza since we missed it Friday due to me feeling bad. Dad taught us a new card game called "Golf." Fun game. No real skill needed. My kind of game. I can't stand the kind of "games" that make you so stressed out you forget you're supposed to be having fun! ha!
I'm off to spend some quality time with My Girl. Take care all!


  1. I agree with your comments about games not being "games". I am the same way.
