New Years Eve

Today has been a just-right kind of day. We slept in a little bit, took our time getting up and around, and slowly got around to making a plan for the day. Of course, by that time it was nearly afternoon!

I needed to pick up a couple of things at Walmart, so I left Jim here and went on my own. It was crowded, but probably not any more so than any other day I've been there.

I got our reservations made for the next week or two. We're leaving here on Monday and will have the oil changed and transmission checked at a facility in Temple, Texas. Then we'll spend a few days at Granger Lake with Karon before heading down to Port Lavaca, where we'll be set up next to Sandra and Gordon for a week or so. Then we'll be heading over to Rockport for a little over a month. We are certainly looking forward to staying where it's more peaceful and quiet after our time here on the interstate!

We did a little shopping this afternoon and went to see Ruth and Wayne for a little while, then we met Dortha and Mark for a dinner at Applebees.

A big New Year's Eve celebration hasn't been part of our routine for many years, and this year is no different. Jim is watching college bowl games and I'm just enjoying the quiet evening.

We hope you all have a very Happy New Year! May all your resolutions be easy to keep and may your 2009 dreams come true!
