    Anyone else spending New Year's Eve by themselves?

    My other half is a third shifter and has to work tonite (works retail). I'm not completely alone as I have the 2 dogs and 4 cats to keep me company. I lost the desire to be out and about on New Years Eve a few years ago and I'm not much of a partier anymore! What are you doing to keep yourself busy tonite? I am playing on the computer and will probably sew a little as I have 2 quilts that were supposed to be Christmas gifts to finish.

    Guess I am not quite alone as DH is here but he has the flu bug and is asleep so he is not much company. I have worked on putting Xmas decorations away, eaten part of a shrimp ring, and have watched some TV. We are very boring people...even when we are both well! I will play on the computer for awhile and then bring the dog in and go on to bed.

    I am finishing up cutting fabric for the Mystery quilt tomorrow- did splurge and bought a couple of those foil packages from Walmart- you know throw them in the freezer , then when you take them out WOO HOO I will have a frozen Strawberry Daiquiri LOL I figure close to midnight I will pop into chat here on the board to see who else is hanging out - and I am not really alone , I do have Dick Clark and over 1 million people in Times Square to share the evening with
    To keep your mind fresh- learn one new thing a day !

    Yes, just me a my fur baby here tonight. Rented a couple of movies and will spend the evening watching them, maybe with some popcorn and toast the New Year with a wine cooler at midnight (if I can stay awake that long). If I get really ambitious I might start on making the new curtains for my kitchen.

    Sent my DD home today, don't feel much in a party mood here. DH hasn't started yawning yet...but its only a matter of time, LOL. Will see if I can see town's fireworks out the bedroom window. They moved the sight this year, use to be able to watch from the dining room. Thats if I make it to midnight. Happy New Year to all! MixDixie

    Well, you sounds like you have a party everyday with 8 dogs! My worry wart BG (shepherd/akita mix) is sulking around. She doesn't like the fireworks and gun shots!

    Well...was supposed to hang out with DH, but he has decided his online game is more important. Baby boy is asleep as well as both fur babies. Tried to play a little Wii and got bored...so about to get a bath and go to bed. He can play his game all night again. Quilty hugs and lots of love from this Texad gal.

    My DH is still recovering from cancer treatment this fall, so he went off to bed a while ago. We did have a nice evening watching/listening to a Gershwin and Bernstein concert on our local PBS station. I know that sounds geeky, but we both love Gershwin especially. They played Candide, one of my favorites, and Rhapsody in Blue, which is something we both love. So, now, I've got the Times Square stuff on the TV and Lady Gaga just came on. Sorry, but that's not music compared to Gershwin!

    Can you believe Dick Clark is still doing these New Year's Eve shows???!!!!

    For me it's a regular Saturday night ... and "the livin' is easy". Pooch and me are hanging out enjoying the life. With all you out there, I'm not alone ... and never lonely. I won't go to bed until after the neighbors shoot off their fireworks ... no sense going to sleep just to be awakened in a hour or so. Happy New Year to all you pillow huggers and the rest of you out there!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I wish I were home tonight. Folks are home and in a mood. I ended up making baggies for my Dear Jane blocks. It should save sometime when I sew them. Atleast I don't have to copy the patterns and such....

    If I were home alone I'd be sewing

    9pm here

    Well I had a great new years eve, but the party is pooped out already. My girlfriend and her family invited us to their farm. We are keeping our 3 grandsons, cause their parents are out, We had a nice casual evening, then went outside in the snow and had a fireworks show, and are home already. I rocked the baby to sleep, and the others were so tired they are out cold. Now thats my kinda party. Life was good tonight! Happy New Year to All!!!!!
