The atmosphere was right up my alley.
Bill pulled out all his connections to get us in and we DIDN'T have to "wait to be seated". I know, your jealous.
Even with all the strict rules, we were still able to enjoy ourselves. We had a nice waitress (whom we rarely saw, but she was nice)
Then we went home and waited for Kerri to call for some games and Brent and Joan and
Scott and Cheryl stopped by for a 2007/2008 visit. They are so fun to talk to and a wealth of information (not important information)
My mom and dad got a tender call from Aunt Claudette at midnight, wishing them a happy new year, although she is very sick right now. I felt gratitude for the sweet relationship my dad has with his sister and her thoughtfulness and this hard time.
Mom was just happy to be awake - me too.
