I toasted it at midnight LA time, and went to bed
soon thereafter.I was awakened in the
wee hours by my younger son calling to say he was in an ambulance on the way to
the hospital.He has a peanut allergy
and, despite how careful he always is, he had inadvertently eaten something
that had peanut oil in it.
Fortunately, he was fine but he was kept under
observation for a few hours, and I of course was there with him.
Afterward, when he was okay and released from the
hospital, I drove him home.I then went
to a planned party at some good friends’ place, so my New Year’s Day wasn’t all
excitement and worry.
I didn’t get everything done that I’d hoped to, but
the main thing was that my son was fine, and I then spent time with
friends.Family and friends are what
And besides, I now have the rest of the year to
accomplish what I started out to do.Well... okay.I do have
deadlines.But I’ll manage them somehow.
How did your 2013 start?Not as dramatically as mine, I hope!
