  • I'd rather stay in. Crazy because 5 or 6 years ago I wouldn't be caught dead at home on a weekend much less New Years Eve. Oh how things change!

  • No, we haven't gone out for years, mostly because we don't want to be on the road with all the other drunks. Our kids are grown so we could not needing any sitters, but we just don't like to have to worry about the other drunks. My DD stays home with her family also, my son he's not on good terms right now so I'm not sure about him, but he's not a drinker, so I'am pretty sure he didn't go far from home either. We popped popcorn, rented a movie, then watched a comedian and then went to be, me momentarily.

  • I love staying home now that I have little ones! They are wonderful! I used to go out too, but it's really not worth the hangover, or having to put up w/ all those little teenie bobbers that go to the clubs, and bars...besides they probably think I'm an old lady at 32! lol.
