    Default What are you doing for New Years?

    I'm not sure if we're doing anything for New Years yet. Just wondering how many already have their plans made. Most of the time we go to my moms and let the kids pig out on crackers and cheese, and theres plenty of candy and pop (soda) for them.

    Probably nothing exciting--like I always do though-I jump (literally) into the New Year. I stand on my kitchen stool (little) and when 12:00 rolls, around I jump --I don't let the New Year just benignly take over--Oh no ! I take charge of it !!
    Of course, as I get older , its risky !! (smile)

    DH and I usually never do ANYTHING for new years. One time I went to time square in New York and almost died (seriously) so I will never do that again but DH and I love to go to Atlantic City (only 15 minutes away from us) so I am thinking me may go there, get a room @ the Trump Marina (love it there to!) and use our free $50 in slot dollars! This all depending on how much room rates are...Last time we went we got 2 free freakfast buffet, $50 in free slot dollars and a nice room for $45 a night!! It was a nice and relaxing vacation.

    Have not decided if we are going out or staying in. Usually we splurge on a fancy dinner out. But we are traveling for christmas, so I am leaning towards staying home this year.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    A tradition we have is "junk food" dinner like jalapeno poppers and fried cheese sticks.

    We also have cream soda and orange soda in bottles (sometimes rootbeer). The kids think that is super neat.

    Dessert is soda floats.

    I'll be at home, reading, cleaning, listening to my cd's, and sleeping while DH is driving for work. He volenteered since he has had the last 2 NY's off. No biggy we are too old for the party thing. Now if he were home, our NY tradition is to get bundled up really really good and take the Harley out at midnight on a 10 mile loop. Oh, am I ever glad he's working. snicker snicker.

    Our tradition is to rent a two room suite at my favorite hotel, pack up the kids, our smaller dog, the Monopoly game, our hats, noise makers, order in a bunch of appetizers from Outback and hang out together until it's time to bust out the sparkling grape juice and our "Happy New Year" champagne flutes and toast in the new year. We decorate our room up, play Monopoly, eat and celebrate. It's really a lot of fun.

    The only New Year's tradition we have is that I make onion soup. I decided a few years back it's the perfect dinner for that night: you take something that can make you cry, treat it gently and slowly, it becomes mellow, you add other things to it and it becomes warm nourishment.

    What more can you ask for to start a year? Tears to mellowness, and nourishment to give you strength for what is to come.

    That's our only tradition!

    We usually stay home. I cook a nice dinner for us and we just spend the evening relaxing.
