I watched the new year come in last night, Of course it was eastern time, so it was an hour earlier than my central time.

I watched the 50 years of Dick Clark, it was a nice way to spend the night. Cool

Who are you? Where are you? and How did you celebrate New Year's Eve? Kiss

I'm in California and also stayed up to ring in the new year.  I had intended to spend the whole night watching the 5th and final season of Damages, but finished up early.  Then I ended up watching that ensemble movie New Years Eve that came out last year I think.  Considering I was home alone, lonely, and stressed I worried it'd just make me depressed but it didn't.  I rang in the new year sipping a screwdriver while reflecting on all of the positive strides I made in 2012 and all of the things I want to do in 2013.  Today I will be doing a group meditation to further my spiritual growth and start the new year on a positive note.  I did this last year and was totally amazed at what a difference it made.

I am in the Rocky Mountains area.  We finally got some snow and I have been skiing all week.  Cool  A very low-key New Year's Eve, just relaxing in front of a fire in a cabin.  Went to bed early because I was tired and had to get up in the morning to hit the slopes again.

Hi everyone.  I lurk on the board mostly.  Years ago I used to be more frequent especially back when ivillage was parentsplace.  I have seen the boards changed and redone more than once and when that happens I usually leave for a long time.  I was gone so long once and didn't have my original email anymore and I had to start over with a new username!  I used to be active on the expecting boards about 15 years ago!  That was also when it was parentsplace.com and not just ivillage. 

Anyways, I am in North Carolina.  My husband and I slept through the new year.  But we don't have cable or satellite so unless we wanted to find a way to watch it online we had no access to the channels.  We only have one TV that gets air channels, but we live in the country and also are house is down, I guess you could say in a ridge, so cell service doesn't come through either let alone air channels. 

I come and lurk and occasionally post on a few boards about 2-4 times a month.  Some of the boards go very slow so nothing changes much between those times.  Years ago I was on daily and the boards were always moving fast, but everytime ivillage changes things people leave.  Lately when I try to get on or post I get errors.  I guess they are having trouble again.

Hope everyone has a great 2013!!
