So much has happened in the 10 days since I put up that dejected little post about how saaaaaaaaad I am.
We got to hang out with our lovely daughters...
...and their awesome boyfriends. (Josh calls this picture, "Bros before Ho! Ho! Ho's!")
We took my parents to Mass on Christmas Eve, then drove them to Baltimore for my sister and brother-in-law's annual Xmas Eve party. I got to see all my siblings and almost all of my nieces and nephews. My mother talked about it for days.
We explored trails in Rock Creek Park, which is a stone's throw from our new abode.
We found a sweet little community garden on one of those walks, and I have applied for a plot. There's a 2 year waiting list so don't expect any gardening miracles this summer.
We went for more walks. I started to feel better.
And last night, all the kids came over for Thai food. Evangeline and Nate announced that they are engaged to be married. Josh and I are REALLY REALLY REALLY EXCITED!!!!!
Happy New Year to us. And to all of you.
