Double-oh Six

It felt good to leave my house and my kids behind for a weekend alone with my wife. Because of the snow, it took us more than three hours to drive to Mike’s house. After we all grabbed a bite to eat, Mike and I took off and braved the freezing cold wind and tried our luck at finding a geocache on the pedestrian bridge over Bangerter Highway on 4100 South. The cache was a “nano” cache, meaning that only a tiny piece of paper could be rolled up inside the container, so I was prepared to spend a lot of time looking for it. The wind was blowing so hard that the concrete bridge was actually swaying. It only took us a few minutes to find the cache, but the container was broken and we had to walk back to my car so I could dry the paper out in order to sign it.
For the rest of the night and into the morning, Mike and I played Splinter Cell. I’m not big into video games, but I didn’t want to stop playing this one. We played for about eight hours total over the course of the last two nights, going to bed after 4:30 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. respectively each night. I hope I can get my sleep schedule straightened out before I have to go back to work Tuesday morning.
The New Year’s (does the apostrophe really belong there?) party at Matt’s house was good, and probably the only New Year’s in my entire adult life where I didn’t drink at least some alcohol. I kicked ass at all the trivia-type games, as usual, but otherwise I was rather reserved, what with being in an unfamiliar place with some people I’d never met before. It wasn’t as loud and rowdy a party as we usually have, so I’ll have to make up for it next year.
