Holiday lights in Long Beach
We made an attempt to see decked out yachts in Long Beach but ended up grabbing a couple of drinks at Parker’s Lighthouse. We met up with more friends for a night out in Long Beach: Riley’s, Saint & Second, and Good Bar, where we did a little dancing with the college kids.
Our friend Delmy showed her jewelry at Docent Brewing so we went to support her and have a beer. I actually had kombucha and took a few sips from our shared flight.
The rest of my day was spent slowly making my way home and stopping along the way to finish holiday shopping.
There were a couple of friendsmas parties and our work holiday party. I had a blast, chatting with old friends, making new ones, and getting to know some co-workers better.
Gingerbread house decorating
Gingerbread house and sweater decorating was a lot harder than we expected. We gave our best effort and drank 4 bottles of champagne… I felt that the next morning.
Every year, my 6th graders build and decorate a ‘pyramid.’ They were much better at it than us.
After a massage, I went on a 5 mile walk at nearby Fairview Park. That’s all I’ve been able to do with with my shoulder and neck pain – I can’t hold weights for lower body work. Over the last 3 days, all I’ve done is walk and today I just drove and slept. Hopefully I can get back to it tomorrow after proper healing.
