I do want to reiterate though that whatever happens here, I will be safe. I have alot of friends here and places to stay. My biggest concern is that the airport will close and I will have to leave a little later. This concerns me because I already miss Maya and my friends and because I am taking the teens on their lobbying experience the following weekend. This is the event of the year for them and I would hate to miss it.
I hope you all had a great New Year's Eve. I did. I was moping a little, watching television and napping when Pascale called me and got me moving. Thank goodness for friends in my life that give me that little push. Evelyne gave me the push I needed to come here and Pascale gave me the push that reminded me that I have friends and people that I have known for over 30 years here.
And so I passed a mellow New Year with Pascale, her family, and their friends. It was nice. I felt very comfortable. There was even a woman there that I knew from my childhood that is still friends with Pascale. pascale being the gregarious extrovert that she is, brought out the photo album and insisted on showing pictures of us doing "Grease Lightening" together at her birthday party among other embarrasing moments. It was alot of fun.
I am even going to post a picture of us so that my father can see how much she has changed. Doesn't she look just like her mom now, Dad? It will be the first picture of me that I have posted on here. I look awful but that's life.
Again, I wish everyone a wonderful year this year. Thank every single one of you for being in my life either through this blog or through my daily experiences.
May we all create a world of peace.
