Ringing in the New Year

I had a moment last night thinking about the future when it hit me. My oldest graduates high school in 2020, that’s only 3 more years! I’m not old enough for that!!!


We are not big NYE party people and it’s 100% fine with me. We ended up going to my Mom’s house for dinner and to hang out, play games and just relax. It was perfect.




Let’s be honest, I am not a night owl. I knew there was not a snowbird’s chance in hell that I was going to make it all the way until midnight, so when Emma started to crash around 9pm, I layed down with her and slept until 11.


And then I was able to rally and push through for the next hour and a half until it was all over and we were home. There was an exciting Monopoly game that happened, I do believe that since it was such a close game, they all decided to leave it as is and pick it up again this afternoon.

We watched the ball drop and then the kids (…and my mom) went outside where there was screaming and silly string involved.

    Oh Gosh….Monopoly! I haven’t played that game for several years. We used to play a lot of board games when the kids were younger (they’re 22, 19, and 17 now….so, yeah, if you wanna talk about feeling “old,” pull up a chair LOL) This NYE was the first (ever?) that I have not wanted to celebrate at midnight (or stay up for at least an hour past the celebration)….I just wanted to get home and hit the sack. Mission accomplished…home by 11:45 and in bed by 12:30. 😉
