Comments for Happy New Year
Happy New Year: 01/01/05
New Year is here and I'm exhausted. I didn't get to bed until almost two this morning and by then I was too tired to sleep. I'm sort of a walking zombie. Sean, however, got thirteen hours of sleep. He went to bed at six thirty last night, having not napped well yesterday after playing with Patrick. At five thirty in the morning I woke up in a panic (so I guess I got some sleep), realizing that if I didn't change Sean's diaper soon he'd wake up wet and angry. So I snuck into his room and changed his diaper as he slept (no easy task). He managed to sleep until seven fifteen this morning.
Rose ParadeThe Tournament of Roses continues to keep the rain at bay. Although it has been pouring all week it was only partially cloudy during the parade. So whatever voodoo they do-do, seems to be working. While most of the parade was only ho-hum (and how much did Disney bribe Pasadena to get Mickey Mouse as the Grand Marshal?) compared to some years. There were four floats Sean and I especially liked: there was a raccoon float, the Glendale owl babies inspired float, the South Pasadena dragon flight lessons float, and the usual Lion's Club float.
