    Last year, we had a lovely multi-course dinner at 'Fat Canary', a beautiful restaurant in Williamsburg, and watched fireworks at midnight with champagne, on Duke of Gloucester Street.

    This year we will be having osso bucco and red wine by our own dining room fireplace, and will no doubt be asleep well before midnight.

    In between, we've had career and health challenges, and both the immediate and long term prospects for our nation seem very uncertain. But in our house we have faith in God, country, ourselves and each other, and we'll raise our glasses with calm optimism.

    A happy and healthy New Year to you all!

    I'm working but will be getting out earlier and then heading over to my parent's house for Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve that I think is now hosted by what's his name.

    Once my daughter is 5, I think I will start going out again and celebrating the way you're supposed to...

    Which is putting the kids to bed, having a glass of champagne and sacking out by 10 PM.

    I have two parties to go to. I know which one I want to go to because they have better food. I know which one I have to go to or I get the guilt until March.

    I think I'll just stay home. It has been a busy eating and drinking season as it is.

    Merry New Year Everyone.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Happy New Year everyone...

    The last time my husband and I went ANYWHERE for NYE was the one that flipped 1999 to 2000.

    Usually the only thing we see at midnight is the backs of our eyelids.

    Happy New Years to all!!!

    The first course will be Asian chicken wings, the second course fish fillets and french fries followed by a Tippens cranberry apple pie.
