Happy New Year all! I did manage to wake up for the change of the year, watched the ball drop, saw Dick Clark, and went back to be. Cheers!

Now that's a zen statement!

I finally crashed at 0100.

I also found out that Spumante does a really good job of cleaning glass fridge shelves...it leaked out of the bottle.

I love not having a hangover and watching all the people who do the next day.

They've started with the fireworks already, and it isn't quite 8:30 maybe they will run out of them early LOL.
I refuse to go any where for New Year's that requires driving home. I often get offers of a lift, but have to explain that if I am going by car, I trust my driving better than most peoples'. I don't want to be out on the road with all the drunken yahoos.

It's cheaper to stay home and get toasted, if that is the plan...and I don't have to fight lines for the bathroom.

As it was, half a glass of Spumante, cut with half Sparkling white Grape and I was ready for sleep.

I spent all day at work with Sparkling Cider and partying with anyone who walked in the office. I had a good day!

Thanks Babe! I'll say a prayer that the doctors find another way to finance their boats than by putting you in the hospital!

The hubster really likes to go to a party for NYE. Me, not so much. We are friends with one couple within walking distance, so we go there when they have a party. We have also, on occasion slept over, but I'm not a teenager any more and sleep overs don't really appeal to me
