Well, I managed to stay awake until midnight to usher in the New Year. Dear Husband crashed around 10:15. I was astonished that I was able to keep going, and was just thinking about going to bed, when the neighbors set off fireworks at midnight! I thought DH might bound out of bed at the noise, but he was sleeping so soundly that it barely disturbed him.
I had planned to make a nice dinner, but DH wanted to finish off leftovers. He did the same thing to me Christmas Eve. I had a lovely dinner for two planned, with a beautiful setting, and we ended up eating in our bedroom, watching a PBS show of Gershwin music. I guess I’m lucky to have a husband who is so easy to please.
I didn’t go out to bang a pan to drive away the bad spirits for the year. I think the last time I did that, we received a call telling us that DH’s oldest son had died from a massive heart attack. I’m not generally superstitious, but I don’t care to risk any of the other kids.
I hope that we will all be blessed with good health this year, and a Congress that is willing to work to pass bills to help the majority of the population. Stay safe, and have a great 2015!
