Christmas Partys Can Hurt

Yesterday we went to Jimmy's company Christmas party and now I'm paying for it in pain. "How?", you ask.

Well Jimmy works at Sproul Lanes, the bowling alley right around the corner. They closed their doors to the public from 12 - 4 and employees were treated to food, drink, and free bowling. At first Jimmy didn't want to go because, "it was going to suck." We finally convinced him to go, so the 4 of us plus his girlfriend walked over.

After chowing down on some hot sandwiches, Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, and other goodies, we bowled a couple of games. Not only do I suck at bowling (92 & 105), I am so out of shape.

My arm feels like it's going to fall off (16lb ball @ ~50 rolls). My legs are throbbing probably because I stretched some muscles that haven't been stretched in awhile. Damn, I'm getting old!

Anyway, we all had a great time and Jimmy realized that the party didn't suck so bad after all.

OK, All Ready
OK, OK, it's been over a month since I posted and people are starting to ask, "Dave, what's going in your life?"

So here goes...
  • We had a new roof installed on our new house (home inspectors are good but not perfect)
  • Way too much money was spent on Christmas decorations (but the house rocks!)
  • We refinanced our new house in less than a year (stay away from interest-only ARMs)
  • Jimmy has missed most of December in school due to Whooping Cough
  • Nicholas is Nicholas... laid back and smooth sailing
  • Michele hates the bullshit of her job (GSI is still hiring Mic)
  • I tackle each day as it comes doing whatever is necessary to get through it
  • The annual family Christmas Eve party is still one
That's all for now. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

(I'm Christian dammit, "Happy Holidays" just doesn't cut it!)

I'm happily married to my high-school sweetheart and have two sons. I love relaxing down the Jersey Shore. I also enjoy sitting by the pool after dinner, talking to the wife, watching the kids, and smoking a cigar.
