I see you 2012. And the annual “do we go out or do we stay in?” dilemma is upon us. Before we headed home from Christmas dinner the in-laws offered to keep Ava so we could go out on New Year’s Eve. I just laughed. Because sadly, we have nothing to do! Do we spend a bunch of money and get all dolled up for an all-you-can-drink event? Negative. Do we sit at the neighborhood bar and drink ourselves silly? Negative. Do we have a party and deal with the mess? I don’t think so. Do we go to a movie and call it a night? Maybe. But we do have some people we’d like to spend time with. But what to do?
To be honest, I have never been a big fan of New Year’s events. It’s always anti-climatic. You make these grand plans, go out and buy a new outfit, put on too much make-up and expect something magical to happen. But it generally ends up being just like any other night, or its a night stuffed in tight quarters with a bunch of drunken fools spilling stuff on your new shoes. Aka. Amateur night.
I guess I have three days to figure this out. What are you guys doing for New Years?
