A Weekend to Remember

The year 2012 is quickly coming to a close, and living up to our roommate reputation, we are going out with a bang.  Each night this weekend was a different adventure, experience, event, whichever word you see fit, with our friends and the one and only cover band Fish Out of Water.

Friday was the Trappe Tavern, and Desiree and I made the full hour drive there without hesitation.  Amazing night, but unfortunately when driving home, a man decided to swerve into my lane and swipe my side mirror, shattering the glass.  Frustrating, annoying, and, yes, I was upset.  But… it could have been worse.  Life goes on, and why would I let one crummy moment ruin a perfectly awesome night?  That’s silly, and life’s too short to worry about things out of my control.

As fun as Friday was, though, Saturday was that much better.  Fish Out of Water opened for our good old friends, The Rockets, at Penguin’s Pub.  Dancing the night away, nothing spectacular happened… But I laughed a lot.

It was a good night.

It was great, actually.

So while everyone bids farewell to 2012 and hopes for a better 2013, I’m doing okay.  We all go through ups and downs, but the ups keep us going.  This weekend was one of the better ones, another reminder of how fortunate I am, and why it’s fine to hope for the best for 2013, but to remember all the good from 2012, too.

Because, roommates, all our friends out there, we have some pretty fantastic memories.  From those times when we are screaming the lyrics to “American Girl” to ordering morning dinner at the diner.  Thanks.

Cheers to 2012, and see you soon…
