I am such a party animal. I was in bed by eight fifteen and sound asleep dreaming sweet dreams by midnight. I heard several texts coming in on my phone but I didn't even look at them until this morning. They were Happy New Year wishes from several people and one from someone whose number I didn't recognize. Either someone who had a little too much to drink and dialed a wrong number or maybe straight from Jonathan up in heaven. I prefer to think the latter.
I know that this is going to sound really a bit strange but as soon as I woke up this morning things seem different. I can't explain it and maybe I'm putting way too much hope on this brand new year. I can never remember feeling this way before on the start of a new year. I just seem to have such hope for myself, for my family, for my friends, and for our country. So we shall see what happens.
I have to work today but it is only a short day, we close at three.
Since my mother is out of town, I will not be having black eyed peas and collard greens today, I am instead having PIZZA. My co-worker and I have already decided that we are having one delivered and it will also be the last of my bad eating, I'll go back to lean meats and veggies.
And so that is my plans for today. Hoping you all a good First Day of the Year. I am glad to see its arrival. Hope it is good to us all!

I was just saying that I love New Year's morning. A whole fresh new year , filled with hope. The problem is, I mess it up so quickly!

And I thought of you tonight as we ran into WM to get a birthday card for our granddaughter, and we pased right by the eye place It was closed, but I thought about you as we walked by!

Keep that attitude. This is going to be a great year for you......I say so.

We're in Athens, Alabama. Florida tomorrow night!
