    My brother came over just before midnight to my new place and we toasted in the New Year. Then we stayed up for about an hour chatting and watching Law and Order, while tormenting my dog that wanted to sleep.

    I have also just moved, so really nothing big was planned other than rest.

    So much for that lildago. Seems like many of us enjoyed(?) a quiet new year's eve. Well except for Ana who's still hungover .

    I had my parents, my in-laws, my brothers-in-law and my sister over for supper. My inlaws left by 10h30, then we watched the ball drop. Went to bed at around 1h30 knowing one of us would be awaken by our early riser of a son at 5h30.

    I was another "quiet evening at home" girl. I've come to realize over the years that New Year's Eve is my least favorite night of the year to go out drinking. It seems like its mostly amateur night. People that usually don't drink go out and get wasted and ruin the night for those of us that do know how to drink. The only way I think I'd go out anymore is if I had a cool event to go to like Ana. Otherwise, I'll opt for Dick Clark and the ball drop on my couch and save my partying for other nights of the year.

    Me, too, gabriel!!! The apartment was empty: roommies elsewhere and Sally in Europe so I popped a bottle of Rose Champagne, had some fig imbued brie cheese with crackers and watched the Twilight Zone Marathon until 4:00 am, when I fell asleep in front of the TV.

    But, I've got all my paranoia cells filled for the New Year, so I'm roaring to go! I just wish everyone would stop following me and that buzzing noise in my head would go away!

    Hubby and I spent the evening chatting, laughing and snacking with our bestest friends and all of our children hung out together here with us. Considering the kids (6 of them - 2 per couple) are ages 10, 11, 12, 12 14 and 15 we counted our blessings and really enjoyed their presence for another New Year's Eve with us.

    They'll be out partying on their own before we know it!

    About 8 of us headed downtown and bar hopped. A blast was had by all, including the obligatory watching of a fight at the after hours pizza parlor.

    I usually try to avoid the downtown scene as it takes too long to get in anywhere, hours for a beer, etc but after having two sucky New Year's in a row, I figured it was high time to get out and have fun.

    Spent the evening in front of the tv. Tried to stay up til midnight, but gave up at 11:30. Was almost asleep at midnight when someone in the neighborhood woke me up with those loud, booming firecrackers. I about hit the ceiling.

    Pretty boring and uneventful.
