This past week flew by and it was a whirlwind for Tony and me, because we worked a lot of hours next door, at Escondida Resort & Spa.
Their New Year's Eve Roaring 20's party was a total blast. Darlene's food was so delicious I actually got tired of the guests telling me to please go tell Darlene that she had outdone herself in the kitchen. And I am sure that just running back and forth to the kitchen to give Darlene another compliment from one of the guests added an extra 10,000 steps on my overloaded pink pedometer.
The evening was filled with Little Jewford's magnificent piano playing and he was so funny—he had the crowd begging for more music and more jokes and one-liners.
Around 11:20, as the guests sang along with LJ and were dancing the Charleston, etc. I plopped down on a sofa to rest for a minute. But when I tried to stand back up, my feet were so sore from walking back and forth to the kitchen to give Darlene another guest's compliment on her delicious food, I grabbed Tony, after he had taken pictures of the guests dancing and begged him to please take me home. "Nance, it is 11:25. We only have 35 more minutes until midnight. Can't you wait?..."
I couldn't wait, so Tony took me home and dropped me off and then he returned to the party to take more pictures and bring in the new year. And an hour later when he got back home—I was already in bed with Henry Standing Bear, Little Debbie, Big Al(ice), Beau and Roy—sound asleep.
New Year's Day morning Tony and I were back at work by 8:15, to help Darlene in the kitchen and to serve the guests breakfast and clean up the kitchen. Then we were back at work early that evening to help Darlene with the guests dinner, etc. And we worked Thursday and today, too. So that is my excuse for not responding to e-mail or blogging.
This afternoon after working I finally had the time to think about my 2020 New Year's resolution. My New Year's resolution is to stop eating Darlene's mouth-watering food, because thanks to her fabulous cooking I've gained ten pounds and I need to lose it.
And I am going to make this Yoda quote my 2020 mantra. "DO, OR DO NOT...THERE IS NO TRY." And I do plan to blog, write and exercise more. I promise.
