another year has begun
wiping the slate clean
I had to work for half the day. It wasn't so bad. I just had to answer the phone and hand out paychecks. Well, I could only hand out checks to classified personnel because the certificated staff's contract has them getting paid on January 1st for the December check. And yes, of course a certificated staff member wanted their check and I couldn't realize it. Alas for them!
It was a quick half day at work. A few hours later we headed out to Pleasant Hill to hang out with the family. Food and family! Always a nice time. :)
So much food! I had one drink (Bacardi & Coke). Yum! Oh, and I also had a tiny bit of champagne at midnight. My favorite part of the night was just hanging out and watching the babies play and talking with my cousins. I'm glad my parents were there too. They left before midnight, beating the crazies out there.
I missed most of the crazies on the road, although there was a slow down on the freeway. We were home before 2am and I was in bed a couple of hours later. Twas a long day!
Today has been a lazy day. :)
