I am looking forward to tomorrow. Every New Year's Eve we go to my friends house and eat and drink ourselves silly. We make so many different breads, snack foods, desserts and the most awesome dip in the world. I will have to share the recipe sometime. We started doing this about 8 or 9 years ago. It started as a celebration for 2 of her kids birthdays and then expanded into a New Year's celebration. It is always soooo much fun. We play cards or games (this year maybe with their new W.ii). The kids are older now so they entertain themselves and the adults have a blast. It is nice because we do not get to see each other very often since we all lead very busy lives. So it is nice to get caught up, have some fun and try to forget about the crap that has happened in the last year. At least I do know that I will not start my New Year like last year. At least it is not looking that way. It is Michigan so you never know but last year we had a hell of a snow storm. we went out to her parents house and they live about 45-60 minutes away. They have a bigger place so it is nice to go there however it is a long drive. Anyway the snow started coming down at about 10:30-11:00. As soon as midnight hit we were on the road. Apparently everyone else had the same idea.
They wanted me to stay the night but I am big sleep in my own bed kind of person. I mean I like to go on vacation but when you are talking 8 adults and 5 children in a 3 bedroom house there really isn't a lot of places to sleep. So I wanted to leave. We did and I literally thought I was going to die on the way home. I am a horrible passenger seat driver. Probably because
wanted to be safe. It was so bad you could barely see the hand in front of your face. Of course nothing was done to the roads so they were filled with snow. I called my mom and talked to her the whole way home just to try to prevent my DH from
So to make a short story long we are not suppose to get any snow like that tomorrow night...of course we are suppose to get about 3 inches or so tonight. Anyway this year would be easier because we are close to home. I will enjoy it much more because I won't have to worry about the roads. So bring on the fun and BRING ON 2009! I can not wait. New Year...New Hope and I am ready for it.
I hope you all have a very SAFE and HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2009 is going to be great I can just feel it! (Fake it til you make it right?)
