I usually stay home on New Year's but last night we decided to go to a friend's party. It was a last minute decision. My friend had not one but two bands at their house and the drinks were free flowing. I can't believe I did this but I got up with the band and sang. So yes, I partied like a rock star and rang in 2009 dancing!

We had my best friend and her dh over. We talked, laughed, grilled steaks outside and played Wii til 4 am. We were supposed to play canasta for our yearly tournament but we were all too tired!
We were just finishing dinner and cleaning up when the phone rang. My dd calling to wish us a Happy New Year.........we didn't even realize it was past midnight! lol Then our ds called to wish us the same. We had a great time as usual.

I stayed home and said a lot of bad things to 2008 as it left the building. My daughter was babysitting so I stayed up and waited for her. I also got and sent a bunch of "Happy New Year" text messages.

I usually end up working so we don't make plans. This year I was off but it was too late to make plans so we stayed home.
