My New Years Eve

I had a great visit with family and friends over the Christmas Holiday, our first in getting the whole family together in about 20 years, but it is too hectic to travel at that time of year and too cold in Western Washington for me. Hopefully further reunions will be in  the summer and without the need to shop for gifts for everyone.

It was great to arrive back in Zihuatanejo just in time to celebrate the New Year. I hadn’t made any New Year plans before I left and no idea what anyone else’s plans were so I decided to go bar hopping by myself at all the usual haunts. It worked out great I visited with old friends, met new friends and had a fun evening all over El Centro. Didn’t get home until 3AM, surprised myself.

The fireworks at midnight were spectacular, and unlike previous years the band that played at the Zocolo was really good. And their sound system was perfect. Too much of the time all you hear is thumping bass played at ear splitting decibels way too late in the wee hours of the morning. Not so with this band. Sound quality and levels were right on. The Zocolo was so crowded you could hardly walk through it, but everyone was happy, dancing in the streets, just a super way to kick out the old year and start a new one.

I am starting a new chapter in my life, final divorce papers were signed by the judge on December 31st and I am officially an independent woman.  This isn’t where I expected to be at this time in my life, but I couldn’t be happier. My only New Year resolution is to make the most of everyday.

I spent a good portion of New Year’s Day, clearing out cupboards and closets, hung my new hand made bead and cork curtain in the doorway between the living room and bedroom.  Previously there was a bamboo curtain that made noise every time you went through it, this one is quiet and recovered my couch using just a sheet.  It looks better, we’ll see how well it holds up.  Then had lunch with a very good friend. Tomorrow, back to swimming on a regular basis. Signing off KO

PS Have spent 2 days trying to get pictures taken on my new Iphone which has a separate email account attached to it to post to the blog.  Just can’t do it yet.

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would love to travel to new places, getting ready to do that as a solo traveler. For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and have joined a couple of hiking groups. I'm a reader and love my kindle. I still work some, I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 20 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. The Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that.

One thought on “My New Years Eve”

  1. I’m glad you’re back in Z safe and sound. I missed reading your blog. But it’s always nice to have all your family together at one time. I’m sitting here in Aberdeen, WA. I know what you mean by the cold weather. We’ll be in Z the end of the month. This will be the 30th year for us. We love it there. Livin Life, Carol
