I totally forgot to tell you guys about New Year’s Eve!
I go to the retirement home and sign in. I go up to Ms. 96 year olds room and of course was early. She loves that I am always early, she says it shows that I care about my clients. We chat for a little bit and she says she is ready to go down.
She is all dressed up and looking very nice and I am as usual in my workout gear but put on nice shoes and a sweater so it looked like I was wearing black pants and a nice shirt (if you read my post a few days ago you saw what I was wearing).
We go downstairs and there is no party. It’s just this lame guy singing softly to the oldies on his karaoke player. Seriously! It was so sad. They could have done much more. The paper they handed out made it seem like they were doing a buffet (she showed it to me) and there would be singing and dancing. I was pretty disappointed with the place! They had Chardonnay but I am not a big wine person so I just sipped it and drank mostly water.
So we ate the “special” for the day which was sweet and sour chicken (hard little pieces) with over cooked vegetables and over salted soup as well as this half “egg roll” that was mushy. The Rice was pretty much the only edible thing on the plate but they were hard, like they hadn’t been cooked throughly. She apologized to me for the food even! I told her it was fine and I thanked her for the invitation because it was very sweet of her to think of me. I did tell her that next time we just need to go out somewhere and actually have fun. She seemed to like the idea as well so maybe I will take her out to dinner one night (or lunch).
I came home and had a little champagne with my mom before going upstairs to watch Netflix.
My glass is from taking my son on a hot air balloon ride in South Park Colorado when he was 6. I need to find the video of that, it was awesome!
Y’all have a good night. It’s 11pm and I have to work in the morning so I need to get to sleep.
