The progressive Christmas party was tonight, always a pleasure to come back to each year. A few streets in our neighborhood join together and host a progressive party, going from house to house, hence the name. Each house has a time slot and everyone comes to enjoy drinks and food, and usually by the third house, the volume starts to rise, the more alcohol people are tipping back, and the more boring jokes that are told but somehow they are seemingly funny at the time. Regardless, nothing beats a good ol' progressive christmas party with the old folks.
Tomorrow my family and I are heading to Dulles to pick Chey up from the airport and then were off to New York city for two days. I get to see where I'm gonna be living, and we'll walk the streets of the city that never sleeps. I've actually never been to "the city." So I'm sure i'll be overwhelmed. I can't wait to have a piece of pizza or "pie."
