Once again, Steve and I had one of the most uneventful New Year’s Eve celebrations in history. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining! We were invited to a party and had every intention of going, but Steve developed a sinus infection shortly after Christmas and was still feeling a little tired. Since the party wasn’t supposed to start until 9 p.m., we met some friends for dinner at Gem of India for their New Year’s Eve buffet and celebration. It was a great time with some excellent food, but we were done partying by 9:30 p.m. Call us old farts, but NYE celebrations just aren’t our style.
We went home, watched a little TV and then got into bed. The new year came while we were snoozing and that was just fine by us. The next morning we decided to hit the Dillard’s New Years Day sale at the mall. I consider myself a seasoned shopper, but that sale was not for the faint of heart. It was a madhouse! I will say, all of the employees were so nice and most of the people I encountered were laughing about the situation. Steve and I were both in good moods and just went with the flow. An hour later, we declared ourselves done and went to Target for some cat food. Yep, we were on fire in 2012.
Later that day, we rearranged the living room and talked about our goals for the new year. I wouldn’t call them resolutions, but more like goals we’d like to achieve together. It was a good weekend, but I’ll admit I’m ready to get back to my normal routine. Happy 2012, everyone!
One response to “Happy New Year!”
Your New Year sounds as exciting as ours – though we were surrounded by seventh-grade girls. It was fun, just low-key. Which is fine by me. May 2012 be a good one.
