How I Spent My New Years!
For three weeks, the DH and I argued over what we were going to do for New Years. As always, I attempted to spend a good deal of time with my only son, the middle child since he’s a New Year’s Eve baby. However now that he’s 15 all he wanted was cupcakes, money and a trip to the mall to get some new things he wanted. I guess coddle time is over. I’m thankful I still get hugs and kisses from him every-night and when he leaves home. My closest friends don’t get that. Our options were spending 150.00 to 275.00 for a corporate event sponsored by his job AMC. I really balked at spending that much money for a three hour party, including a buffet, and a glass of champagne. I mean party bag full of top notch goodies? No just the normal food and drink, and not even a free bar. So then we decided we were just going to stay home.
Did we do that? Nope. We picked up his pops and headed over to the Brother-In-Laws house. My SIL did a great job cooking finger foods and making mixed drinks. Some close friends came and we played LOGO. A game I bought for the kids on Christmas. Between all the sexual innuendo and stories of the hubs teen through twenty years, we were dying laughing. I’ve heard these stories a million times over the last thirteen years. My favorite one was the way they used to prank each other. Family, and alcohol normally are not a good mix. However with this family man it’s hilarious. So instead of spending an exorbitant amount of money to stand with strangers or associates and pay for drinks, we had a fabulous time again with family, toasted to each other and to a fabulous 2012.
I’m not a big person on goals. I don’t like limits and I feel that they can be limit setting. I cheer for my friends when they make goals and wish them well on following through. I do however make plans 😛
I plan on finishing the four halfway written manuscripts on my desk top within the next few months.
I plan on taking some more courses this year and perhaps a romantic suspense novel.
I plan on going to Romanticon 2012!
I plan on having a great story to write after my Caribbean cruise in October!
I hope to meet new friends and to be inspired daily to be better than I am.
How do you celebrate your New Years.
