Happy New Year!

And wishes for a wonderful 2009 for everyone!

Well, one can hope, can't they?!

Usually, as a family, we go to First Night Worcester. It's a great event with tons of entertainers and fun and food! But with dh and my work schedules on Wed, it just didn't look good. I'd been attending First Night since my oldest was 2!! (11 yrs ago) Many times, dh would be working second shift and we'd go on our own-- or baby slingin' or running through the streets blowing off steam (like little boys require!) or baby slingin' again or dragging kids through the streets.. ok, you get my drift. It was a little sad not to be able to go but with the temperatures lingering around 5 DEGREES F, we weren't as sad as we could have been!

And then, like luck would have it, our dear friends invited us over for a New Year's Eve party! Our first since kids, I might add! The kids played the Wii and ate munchies while the parents played a game called "Damn it!" It was much like Trouble or Sorry but you used marbles that went around a Chinese Checker reminiscent board and used a die to work out how many to move. If you roll a 1 or a 6, you can let a guy out of 'home' and then roll again. Ok, first off, my dh isn't known for his 'good luck'. You wouldn't have known that last night! He'd roll a 1 or a 6 3, 4, 5, 6,7, 8 times in a row!! No lie! The others of us barely held that die, I tell ya! And we were all playing the game on the offensive LOL which means, no one was winning, we were all just making sure the other guy was LOSING! It was a scream. And, by the end of the night, we'd renamed the game to "You Suck"

Happy New Year All!!
