Happy New Year!
My party last night was a great success. A good time was had by all! Jim Freeh came by with two of his friends from Seattle, Michelle and Noe Parces came with a friend from Noe's work, Ingrid, Pearl, Keaton and Amariah, and James and Patti Racina were all here. I had quite the full house! The conversation was great. Then we broke out the card game Cards Against Humanity and we all almost died of laughter. I am so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life. It was a really good way to start the New Year!
I am still waiting for my ex-husband to bring my boy back home. I miss him a lot. I don't think that my ex husband understands that a week without Clayton is really weird for me. I have him almost everyday. I know that it is good for me to create a bit of separation and that Clayton have time without me. I just miss him when he is gone. I guess that is to be expected.
Well on to a new year and a new outlook on life. Hahaha. I do kind of laugh at the whole resolution thing. However, it is never bad to take a look at life and try to make commitments to be better. I am going to try to be present. To really take time and live the life in front of me. Time goes by to quickly, and often I find myself wrapped up in all of the little pesky things. I am going to make an effort not to do that. I want to spend as much time enjoying life as possible. In that vein, I decided last night that Clayton and I should take a trip together this summer. Just the two of us. I don't know where we will go or what I can afford. I think I will start to look at San Diego. Clayton loves it there. Maybe we can hit the San Diego Zoo. He has always wanted to get back there. I might try to find a small condo to rent from homeaway.com. I think it is a good place to start looking.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy new year. Here is to 2016 being a good year.
