So, how will you be ringing in the New Year?
After working through Christmas, I managed to wrangle the eve off (although I'm working the day.)

We're planning on a relaxing evening at home with my sister and her husband and maybe go see fireworks in a neighboring town.

And what will you be doing?

3. I am going to the triplets' for dinner....
We are probably ordering Chinese food. A champagne toast about 8 (not for the triplets). Then I will come home to avoid the idiot drivers.

Excellent that you have the Eve off.

4. Governor Granholm's New Year's Eve party
and then her swearing in on New Year's Day.

Should be a great time with 1200-2000 of my closest friends.

5. I am so happy that Granholm won....
Back in early September, I spent some time in the Holland/Macatawa area visiting with relatives. There were so many DeVos signs in people's yards (I saw exactly ONE for Granholm) that I really despaired. The other parts of Michigan did good re-electing Granholm.

:D

7. I don't know what we would have done had he won
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 08:49 PM by SharonRB
He would have been a total disaster! I love Jennifer -- I wish she could run again or run for president, but she can't do either. Maybe she'll run for senate or something down the road or be named to the next Dem president's cabinet or as some agency head. I just hope she completes her term, which means she won't be available until 2010.

She's just so warm and honest and instills a great sense of trust when you meet her. She has a lot of the same qualities that Bill Clinton has when it comes to connecting with people.

on edit:
There's always SCOTUS if an opening occurs at the right time!

:hi:

Have a happy new year!

Since we're going to the swearing in and the afternoon festivities on Monday, I'm going to have to set the VCR for the Rose Bowl, just in case. I originally wanted to be sure to be home in time for it, but it's not often that we get to attend something like this, so I'll just play it by ear. Maybe we'll just go somewhere near Lansing or E. Lansing to watch -- I'm sure it will be strange watching a UofM game in State territory if we do!

11. Having a few friends over.
I'm making some food, punch, drinks, and popping a bottle of champagne at midnight.

We'll probably play a couple games and stuff and watch the 5 kids all 10 and under that will be here get wilder and wilder as the night goes on. :)

12. Checking into a Courtyard by Marriott, early dinner at a local restaurant.
I used to stay up until midnight, but rarely anymore. I might try it on Sunday night... To me, it's just another night. I say the year REALLY begins around September 7th, Labor Day, or whenever the grandkids go back to school, whichever comes first.

28. The airport- wee!
I'm picking up my friends, then we're going back to their place to smoke and drink things. I know it sounds bland, but since I watched the fireworks from the roof and got busted with some stuff not quite legal in California (or with a $200 fine) in my pocket I've been much more careful- er, boring.

I hope you'll at least be earning some OT pay.

I work New Year's Day and will get double-time. That's incentive not to wind up with a hangover. Plus, I don't have to be in until 4.

He's actually not working, for a change, so I'll go to his place. He's going to get a variety of interesting beers to drink, we'll have cheese and crackers with grapes and olives, watch the Three Stooges marathon (which we hope will be on this year), and watch the ball drop at midnight. This is the first New Year's Eve that I've had something to do in years.

He always has them on New Year's Eve so we do our Christmas then; presents, pizza, champagne (for us), and sometimes fireworks. We let the kids stay up as late as they want. It's lots of fun.

Or it will be as soon as I get all this stuff wrapped....

37. It's my BD -- so my plan is...
1) Watch John & Elizabeth Edwards on Georgie Steph in the morning.

2) Open my BD gifts (since last year, everyone has moved out of state so I'm alone this year :(. )

2) Make "Cool-Whip" dessert for my BD cake. It is totally awesome and bad for me, but hey, it's my BD.

3) Finish my kitchen/dining room floor. I've been putting it off since August and have been poking away at it all Christmas break. I'm almost finished!

4) Watch the Bears kick the Packers be-hinds and bid Brett Favre a fond farewell from football (I think this will be his last game, my guess is he'll retire after this year.)

5) After the Bears game, I'll either watch the 3rd season of Arrested Development or Casablanca and enjoy a fine brew.


Hey, it's only a day.

But that's okay because I won't have clothes to wear since the airline lost my bag. Well I got the other one but it's still more fun to say I have no clothes.

I think being alone on New years is worse than being alone on valentines day. At least it is for me. A new year should be optimistic and hopeful. Instead I am sitting here down in the dumps because I am all alone.

58. We'll be spending New Years Eve like always at the stable,
watching our horses. They don't like all the noise and run around like crazy, and I want to at least be there to be able to call the veterinarian if necessary. It won't be too cold this year but I hope it won't rain. Not much fun standing in the rain for two hours mumbling "whoa boy, easy there"... :)

64. Saving the world
I was remembering Ruth Klein. My mother had sent me to help her as soon as I was old enough to be useful. Miss Klein made a crack house into a community garden and breathed life into neighborhood that had been slated for demolition.

It's startling, really, to consider that she passed away unnoticed - a situation I now find intolerable.

She made it look easy and as it turns out, it was. You just have to want to make a difference. Think global, act local and the advantage we have now is the medium in which we are communicating. It holds the power to revive her spirit.

Happy new year and may we all find peace.

72. I spoke to someone to tonight who knew Ruth Klein!
Talk about happy new year ... we were talking about appreciating real estate values and networking application requiring her professional qualifications and I mentioned Sheepshead Bay and the police station that closed there. Who else would understand how that result came about? But Robin knew of her by reputation.

Talk about immortality! And we met bringing modern Internet service to FDNY, finishing this year. Our efforts in the public interest serve beyond our tenures.

I have my master's now. They tell me it was completed in record time, but I'm postponing the PhD for professional reasons. Honestly, it can wait.

But the big success tonight was finding someone who knew my dear friend. If anyone was a true god mother, Ruth Klein was there for us all.

65. Staying at home and watching some lame ball-dropping TV show...
Wait....let me rephrase that... :yoiks: :rofl: :P

Mr. NWC is so incredibly boring that he doesn't even want champagne. :P His big New Year's Eve thing is to change the calendars at midnight. :rofl:

71. Hang out at home, worry about my kids who will
probably be out partying. They all call me when they get home so I know they're okay. :D

Happy New Year!
