Ping-Pong For One

My children spoiled me this Christmas. They bought me a ping-pong server that allows me to practice by myself, one hundred balls at a time. Can you imagine? I had no idea such a thing existed. It even lets me practice against spin, as much or as little as I want. The one drawback is that when you hit a hundred balls by yourself, you have to pick up a hundred balls by yourself!
Santa was good to me too. He brought me new movies to watch when I’m on the treadmill, and a new jig-saw puzzle. Funny though, the best memory of the day was the hour my daughter and I spent sipping coffee and visiting before everyone else got up. All in all, a delightful day that ended with a ham dinner at the neighbors, and eight to ten inches of new snow. That means firing up the snow-blower. I just need to find the key. I love to run it, and I haven’t gotten to in a long time, but it does require a key. Ahh, winter in Colorado.
Now to the projects that need to be finished: the painting, the book, and the year end bookkeeping. Then on to losing the extra pounds I recently found, un-decorating the house, and organizing the basement storage room. The list is never ending. The list is life.
So here comes 2015. I don’t know how this last year went so quickly, but I suppose that trajectory will continue with this coming year going just as fast. Amazing.
