If the year goes according to my theory, we will be spending the year in Calimesa, hanging with family, playing games and eating yummy food. Sounds great!
We drove out yesterday morning loaded up with an air mattress and pomegranate margaritas. My sister did all of the cooking and made a great prime rib and lots of roasted veggies. Before dinner however we played a raucous game of MGM Monopoly. I totally, TOTALLY, could have won as I had the Tribute Theater and the Michael Jackson Theater (think Park Place and Board Walk) and they had three chips each (think houses). But after several hours the game disintegrated into pandemonium just when I was about to start raking in 1300 payments.
Dinner and overeating was had, then games of Cards Against Humanity, which was hilarious playing with the sweetest most rational Pollyanna (Vicki). Then some exhausted skipbo while we all waited for midnight. Wished everyone a happy new year in the quietest celebration ever because the baby was asleep. We were all in our beds within ten minutes of the new year.
We all went out to breakfast this morning and then we headed home. I already had purchased ingredients to make my usual black-eyed peas with greens and cornbread. Hopefully this will bring the luck, health and prosperity for the new year….this year can use all the help it can get.
