New Years Thoughts–5 Question Friday

1. How long does your Christmas tree stay up?

It goes up the weekend before Christmas and if I could, it would come down today, but “Grandma with two doggies” (my mom) is coming down to celebrate Christmas with us next weekend and I promised we would keep the tree up.  Sue has discovered taking the ornaments on and off and is making us a bit crazy.
2. Do you have plans for New Year’s Eve?

We’ve been invited to a family party, but it is a ways away and we would have to stay the night, so we will likely just veg out here.  I’ll make some carmel popcorn and we’ll have some fun.

3. Do you have any New Year’s resolutions?

Hubby and I are going to start eating weight watchers style again.  I also am going to start exercising in the morning before work (eeek, 4:30 am that is) and I am going to figure out how to get the kids to daycare without yelling.
4. How did you spend New Year’s Eve when you were younger?

I don’t remember, but if I had to guess I would say we went over to our friends house where my folks played cards while us kids watched TV.

5. What was the best way you’ve ever spent New Year’s Eve?

I was engaged once (to a guy I did not end up marrying).  He proposed on New Year’s Eve.  At the time it was awesome.  But, Praise the LORD, that relationship did not last, so I guess it wasn’t that great, huh?  Truly the best is just being surrounded by my kids and hubby.

What are some of your New Year’s thoughts?  Hop on over to Mama M and see what others are thinking.  After you take a gander at these cuties.

    1. How long does your Christmas tree stay up?
    It usually goes up somewhere between Black Friday and December 10th and comes down sometime during the week after New Year's.

    2. Do you have plans for New Year's Eve?
    Yes, I am going out to dinner with my family.

    3. Do you have any New Year's resolutions?
    The ones my doctor would like me to have – exercise more, eat healthier. Easy to say, hard to put into practice.

    4. How did you spend New Year's when you were younger?
    I've been spending New Year's Eve the same way for about 30 years. I always go out to dinner with my family.

    5. What was the best way you've ever spent New Year's Eve?
    One that I remember is when we got an ice storm and every inch of the trees were covered in white with their limbs heavy and hanging across the roadways. It was a very beautiful sight. The type of snow you usually only see in holiday movies.
