Happy (almost) New Year! New Years Eve day has started out a bit oddly. Very low visibility while driving at 5 AM due to intense fog. Then a group of deer (at least four) almost ran out in front of my car – but they actually saw me and turned around. *whew*
I then saw no other cars on the road as I made my way to the gym for an early morning aqua class. However, as I got out of my car in the near-empty parking lot of the gym, I heard someone ask me a question. It was a young man traveling on foot who was confused, lost and possibly drunk – possibly drunk because he could not understand even the most basic of directions I was giving him to the grocery store (half mile down the road) that he was looking for. What comforted me was someone who parked her car next to mine and waited while I answered the boy's questions. I felt safer that way. Found out later that this woman is a gym employee who was actually running 45 minutes late to work – but I'm glad she was. After I told the story to the front desk employee and we called the police (as a just-in-case measure), I bumped into a former coworker I haven't seen for years!
I don't want to ask "What else will happen today" but really, what will happen?!
I'm happier at the moment to turn my attention to these two homes found on IKEA's real family website. Here are more photos of the homes.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Be safe and enjoy the weekend!
