Happy New Year’s to everyone!
I did end up going over to my Brother Joe’s house and a good time was had by all. There were plenty of snacks, and dinner (homemade lasagna and salad with great bread) was excellent, with the pleasant addition of my sister-in-law Jean’s apple salad. Dessert was cheesecake and mixed berries, along with a ton of homemade cookies. I couldn’t eat nearly as much as I wanted, but I gave it a good try.
My back did get in the way of the festivities and I had to leave the table way too soon (the chair was killing me). So I felt dumb, sitting in the living room while everyone else was in the dining room. But, by doing things like that, I was able to stay much longer than I thought I could.
I really didn’t like everyone fussing over me, especially as you could tell Carl was a lot worse off than me.
Anyway, I was glad to see my brothers and sisters after so long a time! Thanks, everyone!!
When I got home, I had to sit in the recliner with the heating pad until about 1:00 AM, and then I finally went to bed.
