We always stay home. This year I did respite work with Miss Mayson until 9pm and then came home. Will I make it till midnight? Doubt it. I'm not a drinker but normally would have a drink on NYE..I don't think I even have any alcohol in the house right now!

We're staying home... tomorrow we will go to dinner and a movie.

We are always a day late and a dollar short!

Let me just say this, in my neighborhood it is best to stay in all day if possible. Seems the 'amateurs' are out early around here!

We took the kids to see the dentist today (all is well except for Katie, the dentist wants to pull a few teeth because they are baby teeth and blocking permanents from coming up, he says it will save a lot of money later as it will help the teeth correct themselves and avoid her needing orthodontics later on), and by 4pm were on our way home. What a voyage that was!

Everyone was apparently out shopping for last minute stuff for their party, and for some reason decided that doing it while drinking was a good idea...

We barely got home without a scratch, but sure shot my blood pressure up and didn't help with me trying to quit smoking either... in fact by the time I got home I wanted a pack or two right then and there... not one at a time but the whole pack at once..

I am planted here firmly and aint goin nowhere until the 2nd at least!!

I worked so many years on NYE that it is just a luxury to be able to stay home and prepare a fabulous dinner with my family. We always do steak and crab legs, sometimes a lobster tail for hubby, then play Monopoly while we watch the entertainment on TV. I like to think it's tradition more than being boring, since it's something my girls still look forward to.

what's the big deal with the ball dropping? I'd rather listen to my friends' talking and some good music.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

We went out for a lovely dinner with my brother and SIL and were back home by 9. I was asleep in my chair by 10 and DW woke me at midnight to welcome in the new year and then it was off to sleepy land til 0600. Old & boring.
