Whatcha doing tonight? Anything fun for New Year's Eve?
Most people don't have to work tomorrow. Firefighters don't observe holidays, however, so tomorrow is a normal day for Chris. Because of that, which means he gets up at 3:45am, staying up 'til midnight isn't really smart for him. More importantly, for the safety and well-being of my children tomorrow, staying up 'til midnight isn't smart for ME.
We're having our great friends over for a fabulous meal made by me (I mean Chris), have a few drinks, play some games, let the kids run wild, and we'll be celebrating at 9:00pm with Anderson Cooper or Ryan Seacrest or someone on east coast time. We'll ring in the east coast new year so that we can be in bed at a reasonable hour.
Some may call that sad. I call it brilliant. I won't be hungover or a danger to my kids tomorrow because I'll still get my 8 hours necessary for everyone's safety. New Year's or not.
Be safe and I'll chat at you next year. Like, in 24 hours.
