So my middle daughter in all her wisdom makes this great suggestion. "Hey Mom, how would you like to spend a nice quiet New Year's Eve in a hotel room? All nice and relaxing and all. You could watch movies and eat all kinds of food...." Me: "No Becca, you may not have a party here New Year's Eve." Her: "Fine then I'm having a party in my room." Eh...NOT!
Now they have decided that instead of renting a room for me, they could rent one for themselves. What a genius! I would have suggested that to her, but it would have been my idea, and therefore no good.
Every single time I leave for more than a day, that girl has a party. She wants to be liked and in order to be liked these days, I guess you have to put on a raging party. I wouldn't mind so much, but even though she is 21 and MOST of her friends are, she has no clue as to how to weed out the idiots that invariably show up and screw everything up for everyone else. (Which could include me, and I ain't going for it.)
So, I get to have a nice peaceful evening, eat lots of good food and watch movies, without spending a dime. Well, except for the food. I may ring in the new year in a bubble bath. Awww, that would be nice, and mounds of chocolate, and all kinds of good eats.
So what are your plans to ring in the new year?
