Well, hello there 2011

Originally thought I'd see H&S for NYE, but their plans changed (congrats to Svan, La Presidenta of the Ambulance Co.). I'd been feeling sick (turns out it was an allergy--offending party removed: Voila! feel better), so was able to take Heidi up on invitation to her house. Had lovely time with Heidi, Grant, Matthieu, Little Michael, Heidi's folks (who provided transportation) and nephew, and her friends [forget name] and Eric. Quiet, friendly night that included good food, a (very) little wine, and playing Apples to Apples. Home before midnight. Cuddled pugs, went to bed.

Slept in and had for breakfast what I'd originally planned for Christmas, sort of. I wanted Bagel Grove Everything bagel, but missed the shop by 5 minutes (they closed at 1 PM yesterday). Sigh. So got the same from Bagel Factory. Acceptable, but not BG. Wanted plain cream cheese, lox, capers, and red onion. No lox to be found, so got smoked salmon cream cheese.

Still good. Just not AMAZING. Maybe next year.

Collected groceries this afternoon, only *just* avoiding being sucked into Barnes and Noble. Dinner in the oven. My Spartans got CLOBBERRED in the Captial One Bowl. *sigh* Oh well. Tonight is the Extended version of Return of the King, and whatever else I feel like.

Okay, hands are telling me I'm done, but before I hit "post" just wanted to say that I'm beginning the year as I mean to go on--grateful for love and friendship, and enjoying my own company.

"The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say."

Oh no, it's worse than being "La Presidienta"
Car 1 means she's responsible for Operations. Big car accident, she goes. All scheduling and top-end meetings, dealing with operations, such as there's pre-planning for a structure fire, she goes. Stuff gets purchased to keep those ambulances running, safe and legal, she decides.

If someone's to decide if we're sending an ambulance to NYC she decides if we send, who's on it, how long it stays.

Someone has a problem with another agency, she hears about it and has to deal with it.

President's just responsible for the "Social Members" side and the building.
