We've done it all, partying, sleeping through it, watching the ball drop, friends over, and it's all good. Some of my best memories are buying a bunch of delicacies and celebrating in with my husband. This year I got coaxed into attending a large scale party, dj, dancing, even gambling. No driving involved, we can walk to it. What's up? And Happy New Year! May 2015 be a healthy one.

I will not drive on "amateur night". Too many idiots on the road. This New Year's Eve I'm grilling Rib Eye steaks for me and the wife, and we'll stay in by the fire and watch a movie.

It's my happy birthday tomorrow 31st. Will be going out to lunch at a New England style inn, and then back here for a snack-tray supper and movies suggested on my CD thread asking for movie titles. There are several First Night celebrations here, but walking in the cold from one venue to the next is not appealing anymore, though the famous Young@Heart Chorus may be performing and I always love that. One year the weather was warm so it was a lot of fun to stroll the streets and stop at cafés. I will always miss watching Dick Clark at Times Square.

cooking dinner with the S.O., watching some recorded movies, maybe, and, possibly, some conversation about books that each has been reading. for me, it's Excellent Sheep-The Miseducation of American Elite and Radical Acceptance ( really interesting- thanks for the recommendation, NEgirl ). he often reads biographies, so possibly one of the roosevelts.

i have spent new year's eve in many ways, but usually the best have been with just my husband and me out to an early dinner, or with a gathering of close friends where we did some reflecting on the passing year and our current lives.

happy birthday wishes to you, NEgirl. double capricorn is it? there is nobody more dependable, reliable, or realistic. enjoy your day!

the best of new year wishes to all for a healthy, fulfilling 2015!

Happy birthday, NEG! My husband's birthday is today (his mother had him induced so he would be an income tax writeoff for 1953! Seriously!), but you are a true NY's baby...

We just stay in. Not party people, so the crazies on the road give us an excuse to stay at home. Cooking a nice pasta dinner and watching The Hundred-Foot Journey (with Helen Mirren---as an owner of a fancy restaurant who gets competition from a new Indian restaurant right down the street). Kitty on my lap. Will break out a bottle of ice wine that someone gave me as a gift.

Its going to be 23 below zero in the morning, and 5 below by midnight. I am sitting in front of the fire and watching football.

Tomorrow is my son's birthday, a scheduled C-section and yes, my husband was an income tax attorney and we had him for the deduction! I like to tell people that he was due on April 15

I will be spending New Year's eve in the Neonatal ICU where I am a RN. Since our tiny ones have a few decades before their party years begin, I'll take care of them, because we will all need them to care for us in a very short decade or two.

That puts me on the road to get hoe with the party goers just after midnight! Wish me luck!

Whirnot, I am so clueless after living in Atlanta for 30 years that I thought you had made a mistake---so I checked it out! OMG! Do you ever get used to it? Do you stay home a lot when it's so cold?
