After the rush & New Year 2013

We figured things would slow down after the busy day we had when the new rig first moved in and the frack team moved out.  But not so much.   We are still averaging 150 to 175 vehicles a day.  We started eating dinner around 4 p.m. so we’d be fed before the end-of-the-day exodus.  Otherwise Jim doesn’t get to eat before 7 p.m. and he goes to bed at 8 p.m.  Not good.  Lots of times I cook something late during my night shift so it will be ready for the next day.  Last night I made posole.

Today Jim went into Pleasanton to have lunch with Jim Mossman and to pick up a set of stairs/steps Jim Mossman designed and built for us. Very exciting. More about that tomorrow.

Tonight is New Year’s Eve with only 20 minutes till midnight.  I will finally see in the New Year which I haven’t done for many a year.  Jim is asleep but with my working the night shift I’m always up at midnight.  It’s fun to see the New Year celebrations in different parts of the world.

As I posted on my Facebook page I use to follow my Polish tradition of eating the poorest meal on new year's day with the idea that things have to get better during the next year. Time and time again that didn't work out and we had one challenge after the other. So about 10-15 years ago Jim and I started having "good" meals like steak, prime rib or snow crab legs. Sure enough things got better and better. So today Jim brought home king crab legs and lobster for our meal tomorrow. That will surely bring us prosperity and joy in 2013.....what do you think????

Happy New Year to you all.  May you be blessed with all of Life’s goodness.

Remember, you are loved.
