Happy New year to one & all! I hope your holidays were full of fun & feasting!
I know I'm a little late but things have been a bit, well, chaotic, to say the least.
The holidays went pretty well. Better than I expected, I suppose. Let's just say the madness was spread around rather evenly between families.
In the last episode, I mentioned that we ate herring on Christmas eve. In Polish, we call it "sledzie" & we eat it as a blessing & remembrance of the holiday. (or something like that)
New year's eve we spent with my sisters at the youngest's house with a few friends. We got on Skype & got my uncle & cousins on web cam for a while. It was pretty much seeing who was the drunker group. LOL. We are on astern time & they were on Central. I don't think they stayed up to usher in their own new year, but they were on with us for ours! The rest of the night was pretty quiet & we were home by about 1:30 am. New year's day hubby, dd & myself stayed home & just chilled, veg'd, & pretty much were lazy bums. I stopped over to babcia's to visit as usual, even though we did call her at midnight.
But the day before the new year's eve begins what can only be called an evil curse...
