Hubby and I have some definite New Year’s Eve plans – they involve being asleep by 11pm tonight, 10pm if we are lucky. Mr. Max pretty much has the same plans, although he usually is asleep by 9pm. The dog is a bit smarter than we are!
I’ve never been a big party goer. Before my first marriage I did go out on New Year’s Eve, but in the last 30 years I don’t think I’ve been to more than 2-3 New Year’s Eve parties, and that includes being in Vegas for at least 5 New Year’s Eves with Hubby visiting his Mom!
From that admission some would infer that since New Year’s Eve is amateur night, I would be a professional, but not so! I may enjoy the occasional adult libation, but I’ve noticed that the older I get, the less I partake.
Sometimes, it sucks to be old. 🙂

Haha my husband and I aren’t old by any means (He is 25 and I am 26) but we will likely have the same kind of night. It is my goal NOT to let my 3 year old crash this afternoon so he goes to bed on time tonight. Then I will ring in the new year with a mug of hot cocoa around 9:30pm and fall asleep on the couch watching TV with the Hubby. We went out the New Year’s Eve before I was pregnant with our son. It was the first year my husband was legally old enough to drink, but since becoming parents, it just isn’t as fun anymore.
I wonder if an afternoon open house wouldn’t catch on for a New Year’s Eve idea?

I would host a party if the guests all promised to leave by 9 lol
LOL You sound like Hubby.
My New Years Plans are to be in bed and sleep by the time the ball drops in Time Square. When I was married my husband and I would go to dinner early and be home before 9. I am still the same way. New Years Eve and day for me is a time to relax and wind down from all the holiday stress.

I think that is how I will think of New Year’s Eve in the future, Amy!
Daughter, son-in-law& grand baby left early in day for a 7 hour drive back to their home. We celebrated Christmas this past week-end. I am completely worn out. But miss my 10 mo. old grandson SO. VERY. MUCH! It is way too quiet around here.
So, New Year’s is checking out all the videos from Christmas with Grandpa. Actually, it feels very, very nice to celebrate the New Year like this. I am sure we will hit the hay by 10. And I don’t care.
Happy New Year Ann!
Happy New Year, Patti!!
