Here’s wishing all my readers a very happy, prosperous, healthful and exciting 2008!
This must be my shortest post ever. We slept late last night and have a long day ahead of us today – we will probably go to Boston for some more sightseeing for the cousin – so I’ll be brief here. We brought in the New Year at a local Indian restaurant last night – a nice dance show, good food, great music and some wonderful and crazy dancing on our part!
Neither the husband nor I can dance very well, I am simply good at copying others while the husband’s dance is one of a kind! He has patented his own dance form – I do not have words to describe it – but I love the way he dances with crazy abandon without a care for who is looking. I am a complete contrast and mostly self-conscious (I enjoy my dance much more when no one is around) but give me a nice friendly crowd and some good dancers around whose steps I can copy and I can have a lot of fun too.
Thankfully, that’s exactly how things turned out last night. We were there with another couple, good friends of ours, and all four had a wonderful time. The icing on the cake was that I won a raffle for the first time in my life and am now the proud owner of an 8 GB Apple nano iPod! The cutest reaction was from my mother-in-law who is probably not familiar with the concept of a raffle – ‘Tula lottery lagli!’, she shrieked with excitement! (You won a lottery!)
Let me leave you on that high note for now. Have a great year ahead friends!
