Despite the fact I was tired and emotionally wrung out, we decided to follow through with our plans to go to Daphne's home for a celebration. And we are so glad we did. It was just comfortable being with nice people. Daphne and her daughter, Karla. Daphne's brother Karl and his wife Karen, and two friend, Scott and Brenda. We ate and I got a great dip recipe from Karla. We talked. We placed pictionary and my team won..how? I'll never know since we started out so far behind.
We greeted in the new year with toasts and good wishes. What was only going to be a 'stop-in' turned out to be the whole evening.
