2009

Did you all have a nice New Years Eve? We sure did!! We had a couple of invites for different events and gatherings (Really we did!! I promise, we do have friends!!!), but we chose to just hang out at home instead, for several reasons...
- Neither of like the idea of driving around on New Years Eve...too many drunk drivers.
- I had several really busy days at work, and didn't really feel like getting dolled up and going anywhere...pj's and a ponytail sounded much more appealing.
- We are homebodies. Not that we don't love a good night out...it's just that we love being together at home.
- We are old.

Yup, Old. Don't believe me?

Exhibit A:
On the way home from work I was thinking about how exhausted I was from the third insanely crazy day at work in a row, and thought how nice it might be to get to bed early. Like 10pm. On New Years Eve. Old.
Exhibit B:
While on the same drive home, I was listening to my usual contemporary Christian music station when a particularly rockin' song came on and I actually thought to myself "Does it have to be so loud?" I then hit the search button, and was pleased to find a comfortable Rod Stewart song on the easy listening station. Old.

I am however happy to report that I not only made it past 10pm, we stayed up until 3am!! Can you believe it? Me either. But we had so much fun watching movies, playing Scrabble (cauz that's how we party-types roll), eating snacks, drinking cocoa with Baileys in it (yum!) and just talking about all the good times of 2008. It was a great night.

And then today has been spent sleeping in (until noon!), undecking the halls, and relaxing... I must say, I like the way 2009 is starting...

You were cracking me up with your "oldities". :) We stayed home this year too. I love being home; it can't be beat! Wishing you a Wonderful New Year. I am praying that 2009 will bring y'all a BFP!

Happy New Year, my friend!! Praying that God sends you more blessings than you can count this year!

Hey girl, we stayed in too. You aren't old! Even though I totally know where your coming from. Unfortunately, we were both sick with the flu. Fun times...

Heather said...

I echo what Jenna said...sounds perfect to me! I was actually asleep before midnight, even! OLD!

Faith said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful New Years Eve. I feel old all the time. Hubs and I aren't partiers although we were in college which was only a few years ago. Its just nice to be home and spend some quality time together. BTW, we love scrabble and play it all the time.

That sounds like my kind of party! We stayed home, too, and that's actually what I prefer.

Amazingly enough, I actually saw the new year in, too! That's only about the 3rd time for me in 31 years of marriage! (I'm a real party animal, huh?) lol

I love Scrabble, too, but, unfortunately my husband is not a fan. )-:

Praying God's blessings on you and your family in 2009.
