Staying Awake

Tomorrow when I write, I’ll make an effort to write on a laptop for a change. It gets rather uncomfortable typing on the iPhone. Call it a pseudo resolution for 2021 to be a bit more organized with my writing. I am just glad to be safe and home with Hal and The Stooges on this New Year’s Eve. Once the movie I’m watching is over, I’m going to take a nice, relaxing shower so I’ll feel clean and relaxed when it’s time for bed.

Now that my shower is over, it is nearly 2300, and I’m seriously debating the benefits of staying awake until midnight. There’s no real upside to staying awake that I can see. But I will try.

The Thin Man

New Year’s Eve is here. We’ll be glad to see the end of 2020. Hopefully, there won’t be another year like 2020 for any of us.

I finished cooking the pork chops. The groceries are bought and stored away. Hal and I are content to stay home this evening. Even if there were no pandemic, we would be staying home. The times of going out on New Year’s Eve are behind us. We enjoy our time together, and we don’t need other people around for us to have a good time.

I think we’ll watch old movies on tv tonight until the balk drops in Times Square at midnight. After that, we’ll go to bed and hope for a much better 2021.

Another thing that comes into consideration is our 21st anniversary that happens on January 6th. Our anniversary is a significant event, and I want to do something special for us on that day.

New Year’s Eve

My main goal for today is straightforward. Do NOT bend over for any reason at all today. I bent over yesterday morning to empty the clothes hamper, and I regretted it for the rest of the day with bouts of vertigo that kept wiping me out.

I don’t want or need to feel like that today. We have a trip to the grocery store to do curbside pick up and a few errands that we need to take care of today. We don’t want to be out anytime after dark because there will always be idiots out drinking and driving. After all, it is New Year’s Eve.

We have no plans for tonight other than to be here with each other, and that is more than enough to make us happy.
