Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a great time bringing in the new year! Wow, what a week we had.

We had dinner at my Dad's on the 30th. Ryan met my aunts/uncles and grandma. Afterwards we went to Old Chicago and Brothers with Berg, Farmer and Flannery. Then we decided to go to Perkins at 3:30am. Because that's what normal people do.

We met back at my apartment at 6 or so on New Year's eve. My Dad and Nancy came over for some wine and to take in the fireworks display. They came with us to Manny's, had a glass of wine and sat with us for an appetizer since they seated us in a 6 person booth. We had crabcakes, ordered my favorite red wine and enjoyed each other's company. We had a fun waiter and the food was absolutely fantastic. I could definitely handle more new year's like that! We got home at about 1. Fell asleep until 3:30 when Hyser and Sutherlin came home. We talked, laughed, stumbled into each other and finally got to bed at 7am.

We stayed in bed all day Thursday, getting up only to meet Tim and Danielle at Champps for the Rosebowl. Got back home, took a nap, had leftover Manny's for dinner and went bowling at Elsie's. Watched Temple of Doom and stayed up until 6:30am. This is starting to feel normal.

We had lunch with Ryan's Mom and his sister at the Mall of America on Friday. We shopped, then got in a workout in the lovely workout facilities at the apartment and headed to Best Buy to get his CD player installed. He loves it! We met Farmer at Applebee's, had dinner and went to Gastof's. I talked Farmer into coming over for another beer and we laughed until we cried. I don't think I stopped talking until 4am. Thank God I don't have a video camera!

We went out with Jill, Jill and Pam on Saturday. We actually stayed at the Refuge the whole night! I decided to try mixed drinks on for size. Unfortunately, they fit. Ryan and I went to Perkins at about 1:30. We walked in with an older man. He said, "Brr! It's cold out here!" to which I replied, "No! It's drunk out here!". Also, halfway through my meal I set down my fork and made this brilliant observation "There was a lot more food on my plate before I started eating." It's scary. And don't worry, I wasn't driving.

We had dinner with Shelly and Brent last night to exchange birthday and Christmas gifts. Bowling starts up again tonight and class tomorrow. I'm so excited, can you tell?

I hope you're having a great start to 2004!
