Peach State says: It is a Blah Day

Hey cuz,

Not much to speak of this morning due to my trip to Bethlehem was canceled last due to a Christmas Party.

It was Jon’s first Christmas Party in years and the whole family was invited.  That sentence should tell you what our night was like.  The party was being held about an hour away and started at 6PM. Getting ready to leave with the boys was quite the undertaking and felt like an Act of Congress just to get into the car.  Once in the car, with 4 drivers, we set our course and started the drive.  Fortunately the traffic was at a minimum until we were within 10 miles of the party location.

With Jon being the new guy and, at the time we arrived, still working at the Dealership the boys and I took our time going in.  Once in we approached the service counter and let them know the company we were associated with.  They gave us our instructions and the boys gave the sizes for their bowling shoes.  This place had it all…bowling, arcade, laser tag, and bumper cars.  The boys bowled a couple of games and it was fun to watch.  After the two games I let them go to the arcade with the cards provided at the desk.  They had just started to play when Jon arrived.  We watched the boys for a few minutes then gathered them together to go stand in the buffet line.  The boys finished and returned to the gaming area while Jon and I talked and a couple of introductions were made.

The rest of the evening Jon and I played and cashed in the tickets and made the token choices at the redemption counter.  We left about 9:10 and arrived home close to 10.  Needless to say the ride home with number 1 son and number 4 son, in the car, was interesting and active to say the least.  Jacob was so wired and overly tired that the silliness just burst out of him.  Oh What Fun!!! NOT!

We settled in and everyone went to their respective places and the rest of the evening was same old-same old.  I am hoping the weather will be over in time for my scheduled return to Bethlehem tonight.  I really missed being in the city last night.  Then I can finish the previous blog “Tis The Season Part 1”.

Hope your outlook on life is better today than on Monday.  I am here if you need to scream or yell.  I can even add a debate or two at no cost to you.  HEHE!


About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
