NYDAY-What Did We Really Do Last Night?

Not a darn thing here...DD's BF was not allowed to come over, mommy needed him to be her "date" at an adult work related party, he has his permit now so he can drive her home:smileysad:

SO DD and I hung out at home- watched the NY ball thing at ummm...I think it was 9pm here? (Pacific Time USA). She cyber kissed a friend in England at THEIR time zone (+8 ahead of us), and I let her have the computer to watch one of her favorites : A Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy- I have SOOO POISIONED my girls with old movies! (And thanks for all the fish!)

At midnight it was SO DARN COLD outside she didn't want to do fireworks- so we went out on the driveway just for a minute to say we did, and looked at all the arials going off around the neighborhood! After about 3 minutes she screamed "TOO COLD!" and galloped for the door! So we watched the stuff out the front room window that we could see from there.

Never opened the champagne for just her and I- She asked about it and I told her if she wanted a glass I'd be happy to open it...she said never mind, "you know I'll just have a sip anyway" and I certainly wasen't in the mood to guzzle a bottle to myself!

That was our big night! I want to hear about the Anniversary party and the Girl Scouts trip!!

Seriously, his mom took him to be her designated driver?

Yeah that surely sets a good example for the kids--plus how much is the mom going to drink?

We had a really exciting new years.... I was asleep by 9:30, DH came to bed at 11 after watching the ball drop!! All of this after having pizza for supper and working on my DD's wedding gown for a couple of hours. LOL

Pretty quiet here. Both boys went out. We watched Toy Story 3, had a few of the German dark beers we like, and were in bed by 11:30. Drifing off to sleep around midnight when Jason texted us Happy New Year. Went back to sleep til 4am when Justin texted saying he was in the driveway, had only had 1 beer before midnight and a glass of champagne at midnight so decided to come home but wanted to make sure the door was unlocked and the alarm off. He seemed OK when I let him in and I'm not sure he was being honest about the amount he had to drink. We reminded him yesterday that it was a stupid thing to do since the police were out in force and he's still under age. Jason said the party he and his gf went to kind of fizzled around 11:30 so they stayed til midnight and then had someone drive them back to his apartment; the original plan had been to stay over so he'd had a few drinks. Even though he said he felt he could drive he didn't want to take a chance. Hopefully Justin will gain more common sense with maturity....
