Saturday, I attended not one but TWO Christmas parties. This is quite exciting for me, as I haven't been able to do anything of the kind in two years.
The early party was a Christmas ornament exchange party that a friend of mine has been hosting for about 15 years. I missed it last year, and was really sorry to miss all the fun and wonderful ornaments. It's an all-girl party except for,
I love this party, and having so many ornament to remember so many years. This is the ornament I got this year,
Then I met Andy at the second party, which was fun all on its own and lots of new people, but one of the hosts is a professional musician around town, knows lots of other professional musicians, and had them bring their instruments. Luckily, it was more of a jam session and playing around than Christmas carols, so we could REALLY hear them play and do songs they had written or played for years. Seriously, they could have charged a cover charge for that party. Fun times.
Sunday I wasn't too sore, but I was thoroughly exhausted and had to rest most of the day, which is okay. Sometimes I have to rest without having done anything fun, so 7-8 hours of attending fun things is okay if it's exhausting. Progress is progress.................
