Happy New Year!

  • Stayed up way late until the wee hours of this morning. Rick watched Mary Poppins with the three youngest, played poker with them (Becky got a flush her first hand, a straight her second hand, then won the 3rd hand with a pair of kings, thus winning all three hands proving that beginner's luck does exist!) and then watched the ball descend in Times Square. I read my book until about 11:50 and then came down to drink champagne and kiss in the new year. Hannah and Will had a few friends over. I don't think they went to bed until 2 or 3.
  • This a.m. everybody slept in very late except Sean and me.
  • Cleaned kitchen, did laundry, made waffles and bacon for brunch
  • Spent most of the day in bed reading my book, Frederica
  • Went out to dinner to a barbeque place. Father Pat and Monsignor Tom came in right after we were seated. Rick said they were in disguise because they were wearing flannel shirts instead of their collars! Becky was fascinated! Sean kept saying things like "Look, Father Pat is eating corn." And, "Monsignor Tom is eating ribs!"
  • Stopped by Starbucks to see Hannah who was working a 7.5 shift today at time and a half!
  • Will and I said a rosary and vowed to go to more daily Mass more often in the new year.
  • It is 9:05 p.m. Time for bed!

Tell Rick a better disguise would have been their wearing high black hats and fringed undergarments...
