We are staying in. New Years Eve parties ick me out. Always someone to drunk, puking, fighting whatever. One bad apple and all that. So DH, dogs and cat are hangin out at home. Gonna head out to the garage in a bit and sit next to the fire and remember a good year
DH is sick in bed, we had our old dog pts today, and I don't feel like celebrating. Sirius channel 23 (Grateful Dead station) is live-broadcasting the Furthur concert later tonight, so I'll listen to that.
Just finished lasagna and salad, looking for movie classics to watch, various dogs scattered about snoozing, and just poured myself a refreshing libation. I even curried the mud from the horses/pony earlier today so they could Parteh in the Pasture for New Year's Eve.
Ahhhh, Grapes of Wrath. Watching it w/ DH. Life is good.
Could go to a party, but haven't seen anyone going (its with church people) in ages so it'd be awkward and I don't feel like being social tonight. Staying home with my parents and my kitty's. Who are feeling very snugly tonight because we've just got home after a week away.

We were supposed to do nothing, then a friend called and invited us to a party. We declined the party ('cause it starts and 9 and that's just too late for me!) but ended up inviting them for dinner. So a mad rush to clean the house, go to the grocery store, bake brownies and get dinner ready by 6:30! But they'll be gone after a couple hours to get to their party so it won't be a late night for us.
After I finish at the barn I will load my coat pockets with several cans of Bud Light and traipse across the pasture to my sister's old store where there will be finger foods, chili, horseshoes, tall tales, lies, and a bonfire.
I will probably be home and asleep on the couch by 9:30 to be honest though, a long day of lessons in the cold makes me tired.
Pony4me: I am so sorry about your dog and your husband.
My son and I just came back from the ER his posion oak is terrible and his face is puffed up like a blow fish. He will be out soon gave him benadyral. So I am making lasagne, thanks to Pauladwine's thread. We had planned to go out for lunch and munch on smoked salmon pizza and chips & dip & vegis for dinner.
Have a great New Year everyone, wishing health and happiness to you and your horses in 2013 !
