I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, whatever you celebrate! We had a great time here at the Zanetti household – lots of fun and good times. Big Tone’ always chooses a theme for his gift giving to me–centered around a color. One year it was red, and I received stunning rubies. But he goes all out with red gum, candy, a book with a red cover, and towels. Always two towels.
So I have two red towels, two black towels, two orange towels…you get it. Finally a couple of years ago, I told him that I loved the themes (and the jewelry) but could do without towels. 🙂
Too funny, right?
To be honest, I figure Tony thinks this will keep me from picking out all the M&M’s from his trail mix in his man cave. I like that he’s a dreamer, because there’s no way.
Now we’re in the process of taking down Christmas decorations, and it looks like a tornado went through the house. So we ignored the house and went out last night to celebrate my brother in law’s birthday, and we went dancing afterward. My sister is quite concerned at my lack of rhythm. She tried everything from patting my hand to trying to move my hips. I finally reached a conclusion:
I hear a different drummer.
But that’s okay. I really do hear the beat differently and have given up on trying to match anybody else’s moves. I just move and have fun. Frankly, and just between us here on the blog, I’m not entirely sure everybody else is feeling the right beat. Maybe my drummer has nailed it.
So for 2014, I hope you follow your own drummer whether or not anybody else can hear him. That old saying, ‘dance like nobody is watching’ is a good way to live. Dance your heart out this coming year!
