How Do You Celebrate New Years Eve?

First I would like to say 2008 was a good year for us. What was the best thing that happened to you in 2008? What was the worst thing that happened to you, in 2008? For me the best thing was my sister coming, and spending Christmas with us. That meant a lot to me, and I am grateful for it. The worst thing, hmm I guess the fact that the economy has taken such a turn for the worse. It has effected my jewelry business, as well as our finances. Fortunately for us, we have been able to cover all our bills, and not got behind. It just makes money much tighter, and harder to save. I hope it turns around soon. What about you?

New Years Eve is not something we really make a big deal about. My children are still young, so we record the ball drop every year for them to watch on New Years Day. We will be watching Speed Racer, and ordering Pizza this evening. Then after my children are in bed, my husband and I will watch a movie of his choosing. It is his turn, so wish me luck. The last time I let him choose I had to watch The Jerk, possibly the dumbest movie ever made. We do not really drink, but I may have a glass of wine. Then tomorrow is of course Football games on, and the Christmas tree comes down. I hate to do it, I love my tree. But it really has to be done, to get the house back to normal. It always makes me kind of sad.

That is about it, so what about all of you? Oh yeah I almost forgot this blog is now a PR of 2 yay. So I met one of my goals for 2009, even before it was 2009.

Oh, me too, I always have the energy and excitement to put up the tree and decorating it, but putting it down makes me lazy :(
