  • I can't really say that I hate it, but honestly it's going to be just another Wednesday night for me. My husband will come home from work drunk as usual. Maybe not as usual, it IS a holiday so he will come home totally wasted.  Oh and he gets paid today too.  So make that completely trashed out of his mind.  And I don't drink, but it would've been nice to maybe get a bottle of wine.  But nooo, I can't ask him to even go near a liquor store, and it's snowing too bad for me to go.  It'll be just me and my kiddo.  And that's just fine.  He's the best company there is.  And this time next year, we'll be on our own.

    So... you're not alone.  Happy 2009.

  • I've never considered New Year's a romantic holiday. If you're referring to kissing someone at the stroke of midnight, well, I personally kiss my kids at that time because hubby works every New Year's.

  • I dont hate it for the romantic reason. I dont even think its romantic. I guess I dont like it anymore because I just dont party much. When I was a kid it was cool, because mom made chex mix and had Canada Dry for us. (she still buys it at the holidays, not sure why). My cousin and I would make taco dip and watch MTV (back when it was cool)
