Gettin' old.

Happy New Year!! Woo hoo! And that's the extent of my partying this year. I realize I might be getting old. There have been a number of subtle signs, but New Year's Eve it really hit home. Want to know how I celebrated? Hubby and I tucked the Terrors into bed, and then settled down for a wild game of Crokenole. It was almost too exciting for me. We then attempted to play a hand of poker, just the two of us, but were to lazy to get out chips. So we bet using my beads I had out for making necklaces. Very Early Settler style poker. One hand of that was more than enough, and by 11:00 I was tucked into bed, alone, wearing socks to keep warm. Old ladies wear socks to bed. My mother wears socks to bed. I'm getting old, and I'm turning into my mother. Happy New Year to you, too.

Well, shit, I just found out that your temperatures are around -30fahrenheit, so don't call yourself an old lady. Young hotties would wear socks to bed in that weather!!

Now that was funny! I am sorry you were tucked into bed with only socks to keep you warm...although, I can relate to feeling old. We HAD to stay up just so I could hang on to a little excitement.

I always wear socks to bed. If I don't, I scare Hub to death when I put my icy feet on his back. Too much information, right?

Well, we don't have the TV hooked up yet in our new house... so after finishing a movie at 12:35... Amy looked at her watch and said, "oh, it the new year already." I leaned over gave her a quick peck on the lips... said happy new year and we went to bed as well... must happen around the mid-twenties early thirties.
