Celebrate the New Year, then relax

This weekend is all about ringing in 2006, which I can hardly believe. Where did the time go? The last 12 months flew by faster than the time it took me to consume a ridiculous amount of deviled eggs, egg noodles and mashed potatoes on Christmas day. I’m on an all-starch diet back in Indiana this week … healthy.As the New Year approaches, I’ve made a few resolutions for 2006. I’ll admit that the resolutions actually taking place is highly unlikely, but at least I’m making an effort.This year I plan to: Apply for a passport Have a successful relationship with a member of the opposite sex Learn to play a musical instrument and start the girl band Moon Boots with my friends Christina, Tara and Katie Tour Glenwood Springs with Moon Boots and become rock stars Show up at karaoke Tone down the content of my text messages in case I lose my cell phone Not lose my cell phone Buy a Kate Spade purse Learn to roll in a kayak SaturdayIt’s happening on Sunlight Mountain to boot: SoulFeel, my favorite band out of Colorado, will return to the valley to play a New Year’s Eve party at the Sunlight Inn. Band members Brad Foster, Brooke Mooney, Kirk Radomski and Dane Wilson recently relocated to Fort Collins to be closer to Denver. They’ve been keeping busy with open mic nights and look forward to seeing all their local fans up on the hill this weekend.This is why I’d kick it up here: I’ve been catching flak for being a SoulFeel groupie around the newsroom all year, so for me not to promote this gig just wouldn’t make sense. But seriously, all the guys in the band are dedicated musicians and I would like nothing better to see them succeed. What better way to ring in the New Year than with some hometown boys who play more originals than covers and can do a funky rendition of Folsom Prison Blues. Choo choo.SundayIt’s happening in Glenwood Springs to boot: The Hot Springs Pool open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.This is why I’d kick it up here: Soak in the hot end of the pool and release all those crazy toxins from the night before that have left you feeling like you were kicked in the head while sleeping. I suggest those massage chairs to avoid as much physical activity as possible. After I catch my footing after the New Year’s celebration, I just might give the following activities a whirl this week:Monday n 6-8 p.m., Mindfulness meditation class, Studio 76, Mid-Valley Design Center, Basalt, Instructors: Peter Williams, Ben Heffer. Information: 209-6780Tuesday n 9 p.m. to close, Burning Mountain Bowl, pay $5 plus 25 cents per game and per draft beer. Information: 984-2739
