Re: GTKY: New Years Eve anyone?

  • DH and I always say we'll stay up until midnight, but we both usually call it quits at about 10:30 lol. Neither of us drink, so we never really see any point in going out anywhere. I have to work tomorrow and Friday anyway, so boo.

  • DH and I haven't talked about it at all.  I know they gave the employees both NYE and NYD as holidays, but I kind of suspect DH will go in and work at least tomorrow since we just got back from a trip.  Possibly we'll play games or watch something and stay up for a while, though I doubt I'll be up until midnight unless I manage a nap earlier in the day!  I'm also not particularly sure I want to be up that late...

  • Dh and I don't have plans. He has to work on Friday and gets up at 4:30am so he definitely won't make it to the ball drop. We'll probably just order dinner in.

    @MrsDho11 what type of games do you and your dh play? My dh and I have recently gotten into board games and I've been on the lookout for games that are fun for just two players.

  • Working 11 hour shift (7am-6pm), rushing home, trying to make myself look decent, dinner with family, drinks at a bar/restaurant party with friends until midnight and much later I'm sure.
    I want to do NONE of this. Especially the work part.
    I want jammies and snuggles with my puppy. Darn DH for wanting to be a social butterfly. I'm sure it will be fun, but I'm worn out just thinking about it.

  • @allichelle thank you! I wouldn't call us homebodies, but we've definitely calmed down a bunch in the past few years. We were content to stay home and hang out, but this opportunity came up and we couldn't help but get into the mindframe that with any luck, this will be our last child-free NYE, so we felt like we should do something.

  • Working. Bleh. I've worked most holidays the past 8ish years so I guess I should be used to it.
    Also, yay a fellow Nole! I almost bought tickets to the game and just pull an all day and then all nighter (I live a couple hours from where it's held) but I would never make it through the work night.

  • We're spending time with friends but I'm kind of not looking forward to it because they live 45 minutes away from us. They've offered their house up for anyone to sleep over but I hate sleeping in strange places and we have a dog we need to take out. So we'll be driving 45 minutes home, which gives me anxiety because of the increased percentage of drunk drivers.

    I would rather just hang out on the couch than deal with the anxiety around all of the options associated with our NYE choice. Ugh, introvert with anxiety problems...

  • Ok, so as I mentioned before, New Year's is the big family holiday for us bears on unicycles. This year we went all out to make it special for my mom. She is a nurse with what is called extended training, and works in a very remote village in Northern Quebec, providing care for a primarily native population that still lives by a very traditional lifestyle. She's usually away from home for a few months, then back for a couple of weeks, and so on. My mom is kind of a badass. Anyway...

    My brother and sister, who are 19 and 18 respectively, have the run of the family house in Montreal when she is gone. They do okay, mostly, but sometimes get behind with regards to cleaning. So, last weekend, DH and I travelled to their house, helped scrub it from top to bottom (My siblings did a great job helping. They are good kids. They just haven't fully grasped upkeep yet, and let things get gross.), replaced my mom's crappy little New Year's tree with a giant fancy one, decorated, and did a metric f*ck tonne of groceries.

    Mom got home yesterday, and was beside herself with joy, so that part of the mission was a success. It was awesome. So, tomorrow we are going over to Montreal to celebrate and do the gift exchange. I spent today making various traditional potato salads to bring. Bears on unicycles are serious about potato salads. 10 pounds of potatoes were harmed in the making of these salads. Everything I own is stained with beets, and smells like salted herring. Life is beautiful.

  • I'm hoping the rec hall across the field from my place has fireworks again. They put on an amazing show that we can watch from my bedroom window!! The kids love it. But because we aren't members at the rec hall we never know when to expect the fireworks. Otherwise, I'm quite likely just to go to bed early... I'm so boring.

  • We aren't big drinkers and aren't very social so we just stay in.  Sometimes we go out to dinner but this year my in-laws are in town and FIL said he'll take care of dinner tonight.  I'll take care of the wine, he'll take care of the rest.  If we're lucky I'll make it to midnight, but it's not likely.
  • @FSUNole31, I woke up at 6 this morning and decided screw it. We're going to the game and I'm just going to suffer through work tonight!

  • We are driving 5-6 (or infinity depending on traffic) hours to NYC. I am super bummed this year because we usually hang out with my best friend before visiting my family the next day but she has become increasingly flaky and didn't want to hang out/us staying with her. We have other friends to hang out with but I am feeling rejected and unloved and feeling hopeless about our friendship. I am also feeling cruddy with a cold but I'm going to pull myself together and have a good time and hopefully find myself on a rooftop to watch the fireworks. 
  • I'm working in midtown Manhattan today, so I am mostly hoping I can finish up and get to Penn Station before the ish hits the fan.  

    Beyond that I'm stopping at my favorite butcher shop to pick up some steaks and we'll be grilling, drinking wine, and eating lava cakes while staying up to watch Taylor Swift's new video.  

    Damn we are exciting.

  • No plans really. Although DH did request some special outfits for sexy times tonight. Other than that, I'm sure we will be sleeping when the ball drops, since DH has to be at work at 6am tomorrow.
  • My husband and I moved to the city from the suburbs this year, so I feel like we would be really lame to just sit at home. A friend is having a party and it's walking distance, so we are going there. Only on CD 3 so I'm pretty sure I will be drinking, even though I pretty much never drink..

  • I bought a cute sexy dress on Black Friday thinking we might go somewhere hip (heh, like that ever really happens), but friends of friends are having a party and H wants to go.  With this group I could probably go in thrift store jogging pants and a holey Harry Potter sweatshirt and fit right in.  

    I'd rather stay home at this point.  We're having family Christmas part II tomorrow and I *just* remembered I told them I would bring cookies and buckeye candies, which means early morning baking. 

    Hope everyone has really fun nights, whatever your plans!

  • @PeggyOlsonFTW It was very low key, we just went out to dinner with some friends then hung out at their apartment before walking over to Prospect Park in time for the fireworks. We've never done anything super wild on NYE in the city, mostly just house parties but I love love love fireworks to ring in the new year. I miss living in the city too, but mostly just living in any city, and we are thinking about moving back to the small city near us in the next couple of years if we can find an affordable place. I think it would be fun to live in the city for a few years especially with a little one.
