it’s now 2008, which means by my birthday in 3 months i will most likely have stopped writing 2007 on things. it always takes me a while to get used to a new year.
new year’s eve was fun. we had four friends over, ordered pizzas and played games. tim brought guitar hero, and i didn’t even want to give that game a chance. joe and i both thought it was dumb. but, after one song each, he and i were hooked. it is a lot of fun, especially when you get better at it and get more than 3 notes right in a row in a song. we liked it so much that yesterday we went looking for it for our xbox, but that’s the one console it wasn’t made for. bummer.
after guitar hero, we turned on dick clark’s rockin’ new year’s eve and played phase 10, stopping for only a minute to toast at midnight. by that point, i was so tired i was ready to go to bed, but everyone wanted to finish the game. we were done playing around 1:30 a.m. yes, people, that game took 2 hours. by the end, joe and i were so tired we were both ready to give clayton the cards he needed to win. haha.
yesterday felt like it flew by, probably because i slept until 10. after tim and mindy left, we went to ihop for breakfast, came home for a couple of hours and then headed to joe’s parents’ house for their annual new year’s eve dinner. when we got home, i got a good workout in, even though it was 8:30 p.m. joe and i worked out for about 75 minutes, which was really good.
now i’m off to get ready to go take a tour of the gym i’m thinking about joining and then to a luncheon at work (even though it’s my day off!). blah. happy new year everyone!
