Sometimes, in order to have a good new year's celebration and rock the night away you've got to go to the right party.
Sometimes, you've got to bring the party to the right people.
This year, I did the latter.
Tom was working the graveyard shift at Walgreens - from 10pm on 12/31 to 7am on 1/1.
You know, like he worked on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
He rolled out of the house at 9:45pm, and I acted like I was going to get all journal-y with myself and reflect on 2010 and sip wine and chill on the couch.
But as soon as he walked out the door I sprang into action and pulled out my very secret supplies.
Sparkling grape juice, hot spinach and red pepper dip, and deviled eggs
At 11:45 I walked into Walgreens with my party hat on and all the food and drink.
We didn't have TV or radio, so we counted down to midnight on our cellphones.
It wasn't perfect, but it was ours.
How did you ring in the New Year?
Happy New Year to you and your family!
