    We are staying home to eat dinner (mostly snacky type things) then going to my sister's house for dessert and to watch the ball drop. We don't have cable so it will be nice to watch real tv for a change! Hopefully we will get there early enough to play some board games before midnight. I will have to drink a lot of coffee to make sure I stay up:woot: Does anyone have fun plans for tonight?

    Continuing to freak out and cry and walk around the neighborhood looking for my missing cat. He was here at midnight when I went to bed, and wasn't at five when I woke up.

    My husband will be working and I will be home with the kiddos, I will most likely be asleep for the official ringing in and will be praying that the stomach bug that has hit my kids the last two nights stays away. Not very exciting, but beyond grateful to be here with my kids.

    Well, my BF & I just got back Sat from a fabulous trip to Vegas to miss the madness out there. It will be relaxation for us & we'll watch the ball drop on TV I'm sure or maybe we'll go to the movies. Then, tomorrow's my BF's birthday! The whole Vegas trip was a Christmas/birthday present to ourselves since both of our birthdays are in Jan. We've done quite a bit of shopping lately. :)

    Other than looking for my cat, we don't have anything planned. My hubby has rehearsal from five until at least ten. We'll be too tired to go anywhere after that.

    I will watch the ball drop, eat chips and dip, and for the next two days will watch the Twilight Zone marathon on TV (one of my favorite things to do).
    I do hope you find your cat...I would be a wreck if it were my cat.

    If you want something different, y'all can always go to the 19th Annual Possum Drop in Brasstown, NC (very, western-most tip of the state).

    The annual event is located just below the historic John C. Campbell Folk School and only a few miles from the equally historic Henn Theater, which was the oldest family-owned theater in the United States until the daughter of the original owner (Mr. P.J. Henn), sold it to a local business man.

    The Possum Drop began as a local event and now draws thousands every year from as far away as Texas. Despite the continued protests of PETA, no possums have ever been harmed in the event.

    I will be working until 10:30pm tonight. A few of my co workers are going to stop by for a "party." A few drinks, a few snacks and watching the ball drop with some good friends. I think 1 of J's library friends may come by with his girlfriend but he hasn't let me know for sure. Either way, Whether it be the 2 of us and the dog or the 2 of us, some friends and the dog it will be all good. =)

    Happy New Year everyone! I'm off... to clean the house! lol

    We're staying at home tonight. It's just me, my daughter, the cat, and our 2 pups. We might play some board games, watch the countdowns on TV and go to sleep right after midnight.

    My son is going to a friend's, but Lauren is staying home. She and I will spend the evening playing board games and watching movies (and maybe eating a cookie or three!).

    We're staying at home. We'll be making a few different dips and getting a Subway party platter. I got some Moscato champagne also.

    Staying in. DD is at work, but should be home before midnight. The last I knew she didn't have plans. DS is home, but he may have friends who pop over. They did last night, so I really don't expect them tonight.

    Snack items to munch on.

    I'll be home ... alone. It is about 6:25 pm here and I'm already ready for bed. I spend about 6 hours with friends today (about 3 hours longer than I planned :lol:), so I'm okay with some 'me' time. I haven't done anything for New Year's since I stopped having more than 2 drinks as it resulted in my tolerance for drunk people to diminish greatly ;)

    I'm curled up with a good book (Gone Girl) and a bottle of red vino. I had to work today so it feels like just another day. I might stay up to see the ball drop.

    For the past 10 years I always went out on New Year's eve. It was all glitzy and glamorous, and a lot of fun, but this year I'm staying in. I'm kinda bummed, but it's ok.
    I'm going to my friend's sister's house, taking my daughter. It will be fun, board games, pizza, wine, and lots of people and kids, I'm sure. I always go out with my friend, but she wanted to stay in tonight.
    I could have gone alone salsa dancing, but didn't want to, even though I know a lot of 'regular' dancers there.

    No take out, but sick here as well. Hubs is snoring in the recliner and my head is pounding so I'll probably nap a bit, watch the ball drop, and turn off the tube.

    I picked up a couple of friends at 10:30 this morning. We had lunch at Red Lobster, shopped at a wide variety of places in two cities, and ended the night at Johnny Carinos.

    My best deals of the day were a shirt from Kohls for $1.53 and $54 in coupon savings on a $92 bill at Kroger.

    I was home about 8:30. :thumb:

    So far, I cleaned out my closet and got rid of anything I haven't been wearing, wrote three quizzes for school, sent a couple of emails, found and downloaded a new music font, and watched the Dick Van Dyke show. I've never been very in to New Year's Eve. I don't drink and my family was all busy tonight. Now I just wonder how much more work I can do in an hour and a half.

    This year friends are celebrating 20 years of marriage.
    So we took in their kids Friday-Wednesday (taking them to school tomorrow :).

    They used bedsheets for tents in the basement, went sledding at midnight, had a wii bowling tournament, made slushies, and ate kid food (finger jello, pigs in blanket, homemade bagel pizzas, fruit kahbobs, etc.)

    Husband and I kept order but also ate tenderloin and lobster, played cribbage, watched movie New Year's Eve, and read.

    Today is Rose Bowl game. Kids are making signs.

    Great start to 2013!

    That does sound like a lot of fun....and a really cool way for them to celebrate 20 years of marriage.

    So what did the kids do? :D
