What will you do for New Year's Eve? Any Resolutions?

What do you plan on doing for new Year's Eve? Do you have any New Year's resolutions planned? Come here and let everyone know.

I've been invited to a party that night. No resolutions though.

New Years Eve we will be tobogganing in the day, then eating chili and going over to a friends place to watch some fireworks, then home again to veg til midnight.

New Years Day we don't do much. I MAY make a special dinner but I haven't decided yet. I'm still WAY too stoked about it being Christmas!!!

Buck and I haven't gone out for New Year's Eve in years, especially since we've moved here. We live in a VERY rural area and any place to "go" to celebrate is over 30 miles away.

However, for years we've always celebrated the entry of the new year with a dinner of fondue from Buck's Swiss grandfather's recipe, then special cut-out cookies and champagne at midnight.

We don't usually make resolutions. They always had a way of getting trashed pretty quickly. Although, I have a head start on getting rid of some weight I've been wanting to lose. I got on the scale this morning, after not having been on it in a very long time, and discovered I've lost 20 pounds since about August. Yeah! That really gave me a boost and helped me be more determined to keep on keepin' on with the weight loss. So, I suppose, you could say that is a resolution for 2008.

We set sail on the 31st from Honolulu for a 9 day cruise around Maui, Kauai, The Big Island, and Oahu. From what i have been told, NCL does one heck of a shindig for new years.

As far as resolutions, some as last year: loose some weight, drink less, save more.

I didn't know that you live in Honolulu. Must be nice sunny and warm out there, as opposed to the brutally cold weather we're having here!

I might make a small dinner myself that day. Was going to make dinner tomorrow, but no.

We don't usually do anything New Year's eve. With 3 small kids, it's VERY hard to find a willing baysitter. But that's alright. We just get some more time together.
I've been asked to work New Year's Day, that means getting up by 3 am to get there at 4:15. I haven't decided on my answer yet.
My resolution was going to be to lose my last 10 lbs left from last years resolution. But now after the holidays and cookie baking and everything else, it will have to be 13 lbs. :(
I gotta stop cooking so much!

dw asked me last night if we could go out for dinner somewhere. i think she meant all three of us. i don't think she meant getting a babysitter. wow, that would be nice.

but if it's the three of us, we'll go out earlier and bang pots and pans at midnight, if we're still awake.

i'm working new years day, in either case.

Take me with you Tattrat?! We're planning a party at my brother's house with finger foods and pop fireworks outside with the kids. Some of my resolutions for the new year are to be "healthier, more spiritual and more positive". That should get me through another year without getting in trouble.
