Happy New Year!

Today was a fun, but very busy, day.

We had Baha’i School this morning, followed by a Pet Expo with some animal-loving friends. I don’t think I’ve ever been to an Expo of any kind. It was pretty fun. I petted more dogs today than I have in the past ten years combined. Have you ever seen a Leonburger? It’s a HUGE dog. HUGE.

The kids enjoyed the trained cat show. I enjoyed the people watching the trained cat show when the old lady standing in front wouldn’t sit down or move, despite several people going up to her to point out that she was blocking about a dozen people’s view. A nice lady sitting next to me and I had a good chuckle about it. Some other people got all huffy and bitchy under their breath. Other people passive aggressively stated loudly how they couldn’t see. It would have been a great sociological experiment.

Then we came home, whipped up some quick gluten-free spaghetti, and went to a Naw-Ruz party. The Baha’i New Year (Naw-Ruz) started tonight at sunset, and our neighboring Baha’i community threw a potluck/party. The girls each performed during the program – The Muse played some Irish fiddle tunes on the violin and Dolittle had her debut public performance on piano. All the kids did a great job, and I was so proud of Dolittle for her composure. You never know that first time if they’re going to let their nerves get the best of them. She was nothing but excited, grinning from ear to ear.  So sweet.

Tomorrow I have big plans that involve organizing and getting started on my Happiness Project. I love that Naw-Ruz coincides with the first day of spring. Such a great time for new beginnings, new habits, new thoughts.

My only thought now, though, is how tired I am. So nighty night, fine folks. And Happy Naw-Ruz! 🙂
