Last night we went to a friend’s Christmas Party. It was more of a dinner party, with four couples and children. The kids played outside most of the time, while us adults stayed in, chatted and enjoyed being together. We weren’t all close friends, but we were familiar with one of the other couples. It was enjoyable, and I was able to, for the most part, take my mind of the everyday stress and simply enjoy myself. It’s been a while since I’ve had a relaxing night. I very much needed it. I need it on a more regular basis.
