New Year...Shmew Year

New Years Eve is (surprisingly) the only holiday we don't really "do it up big for".  When I was younger, I spent most New Years Eves at church or grounded at home (what???).  When we got married, I spent most New Years Eves with the flu...oh wait...there was that one fondue disaster where we almost burnt down our new home.  Good Times.  These days, we spend New Years Eve in our pajamas trying to pry our eyes open to watch some airhead celebrity make the ball drop.  It's not that we aren't excited about a New Year...it's just that I don't want to get out and wait 3 hours to eat at a mediocre restaurant when I can be warm at home...in my pajamas (most important part). 

I worked at school all day today trying to get organized before the little sweeties come back on Wednesday, so I am looking forward to a chill night ahead of me.  I'm actually rather excited about it.  Are you ready?

First, I'm going to....

Tough Decision: Chai Latte?  Apple Cider?  Hot Chocolate?

Then I will....

Yep...that's the Mac-Daddy foot massager from Brookstone (AKA My new best friend)

Then I believe I will.....

Bust out my electric blanket (my other best friend) and the Kindle for a little Elin Hildebrand reading.

And finally...as the big ball drops...and all my hopes and dreams rise...I'm going to...

Break open these bad boys!  There is not already a rip in that bag.

I know you are all superbly jealous of my evening.  I'm usually a party animal, but I like to rest up on New Years Eve.  After all...2012 awaits and we have lots to prepare for!  Better rest up while I can!

Here's to 2012...may it only get better from here for me and all of you.  I don't know how I can get much better than this....but it's worth a try.

Keep Walking....
