Well, the lights are still up around town but I know several people who have already packed away their Christmas decorations and are ready for the new year. I wonder how many people who read this are planning to go out on the town. Are you planning to attend a party at a friend's house or go to a hotel for their celebration, or just go to dinner out? Or maybe you like to stay in and have your own little party with your significant other and your kids? Maybe you wait for the ball to drop in New York's Times Square, or Dick Clark's Rockin New Year's Eve show. Or maybe you are like I have been many times and fall asleep by 10ish and miss the whole event of welcoming in the new year. We have no plans this year. I will probably plan a nice dinner at home and maybe a couple of snack foods to eat while we watch some rented DVD's and hopefully I can make it until midnight. I remember years ago having a dinner party on new years eve and we invited four couples to join us. We ate lobster and steak and had chocolate mousse for dessert. There was champagne and appetizers and one of my guests, a coworker of mine fell asleep and missed the midnight celebration. I took pictures of her sleeping on my couch. It was so funny to me then, and now I have been known to do the same thing. It just occurred to me that I can't drink champagne this year. Hmmm! Our wedding anniversary is tomorrow and we usually have champagne then too. My hubby doesn't drink wine. I may have to open champagne for him and wine for me. Any great ideas for ringing in the new year??
