Hear this! I've been dared by Fr. Bill to toilet paper his home. He thinks just because he has a forest for a backyard that it can't be done. I think I could easily put together a fine team of TP'ers that would put any high school job to shame. However, he's the type of guy that thinks along the lines of "don't get mad, get even." I'm thinking woo hoo, I have one small tree in my yard. ;) But honestly it is the whole getting even thing that scares me, that and getting caught. His whole "revenge is a dish best served up cold" comment makes me nervous but oh, I've been dared! Hmm...I may need to ponder this a while longer.
Fr. Bill's annual Christmas party is always a wonderful time. It's a highlight of the year. It's so nice in January because the major hustle and bustle is over and we are able to enjoy the season with friends and without the stress. He puts on a lovely yet casual meal and we all just let our hair down. We laugh so hard every year over the silliest things. Crop dusting in church probably drew the biggest laughs last night. I could hardly breathe we were laughing so hard. Laughter is so good for the soul. We hit a new record and stayed until 10:00 last night, we were all just having such a great time. I truly am blessed to work at such a great place with great people!
In other news, I did make it to Tommy's game today at 7:45 even though he didn't think I would. It was a great game, 3-3 tie. I just love hockey. He is in a tournament next weekend so we will get our fill then.
Joe took Austin ice skating last night. He is doing ok but is so scared of falling. It is so hard for him with that weaker right side. Hopefully he will get some confidence soon. He loves wearing his skates in the house and is walking well in them. He also has a hockey glove that he will wear and has been shooting. I sure hope he can play on a team someday, he loves hockey so much.
I've made it through my first mini-week getting to work earlier. I hope I can keep it up but it was certainly harder the last two days. Endurance! I can do it! I'm also doing better keeping my desk area organized. I am certainly trying so you can't fault me for that.
I hope everyone else is still sticking to their resolutions, have a happy weekend!
