Most New Year’s Eves Bret is playing with a band, looking all handsome in a bow tie. I don’t really mind. When we were younger, I would go and sit by the bar or where ever and watch. Lately. I’ve felt too old for such shenanigans. This year he didn’t have to play, so I had him as my very own date. We went out to eat and had a great time. Just as we were ready to come home (at 8:30), we ran into my sister-in-law and sat a while longer — way past my bedtime.
There’s nothing worse than waking up New Year’s Day and feeling like you stayed up too late.
Not true. There was a time n my life I drank (ahem) a bit on New Year’s Eve. There’s nothing worse than waking up on New Year’s Day hung over. What a way to start the new year.
Today we’re taking down the Christmas decorations and getting ready to head back to our normal schedule tomorrow. It’s a little depressing and a little bit of a relief.
