Well, I would like to say Good Riddance, 2009… bring on 2010. But today, only the 4th day into the year and it was one of those no good days already. Reality smacked us in the face and then spit on us for good measure.
So rather than get angry like Marc could have done or cried like I wanted to do, we packed a quick sandwiches to eat in the car and headed to Toys R Us with a purpose. We were blessed with a gift card from there, so we bought Monopoly and headed back home.
We all put our jammies on early, Marc popped popcorn, and we played/taught Andrew (AJ was there… but not much teaching was going on) Monopoly. We didn’t even get near finished before the boys bedtime, but we packed up each person’s money, property’s & game piece in their own ziptop bag. We noted whose turn it was and where each player ended so we can resume another time.
I think Andrew enjoyed it, but truthfully, I think the game was more for Marc and I tonight. Lord, please shine your face upon us in 2010.
